The home screen presents the main menu for each user of the system (multi-user features available December 2019). When the system is unlocked and the home screen is loaded, the tower amplifier will also become active so selections will play immediately.

Because there really is no limit to the number of buttons you can customize on the home screen, you may have to scroll the screen to see all of the selections.
