a android box, not sure what brand but an android box. i want to know if i need a gmail account to get in to the system, i know im probably going to need one for the google play store
Without knowing what this "android box" does we can't say for sure. A video streaming box will probably function without a google login, but you won't be able to update the apps. If you want to ssh into a device running android, then you would probably ssh in as root. Android doesn't have too many local logins.

What type of device are you asking about? A set top box (for TV)? What is the make/model of the device?
