The home screen presents the main menu for each user of the system. When the system is unlocked and the home screen is loaded, the tower amplifier will also become active so selections will play immediately.

Toolbar

AXUX-Toolbar.png

This toolbar appears at the top of the screen in all menus. From left to right its components are:

Padlock
Tap the padlock to lock the system before you walk away to prevent unauthorized tampering (system automatically locks after 15 minutes of inactivity from most screens)
Front speaker control
Tap the speaker to cycle through three volume settings: Mute, Quiet and Loud (Bravo and Millennium are On or Off). The default setting will revert after you lock the system (or it times out)
Save the default setting and fine level adjustment in Settings - Volume
Back arrow
Tap the back arrow to return to the previous screen
Home
Tap the home icon or Chime Master logo to return to your home screen
Date and time information
not touch enabled
System status indicator colors and icons
StatusIconsAX.png
You can tap this icon for text explanation of the following:
Blue for Standby
Yellow for Initializing (amplifier waking up)
Green for Ready
Red for Muted (upper half outside, lower half inside zones)
Music note is displayed during selection play (tap icon to display title of selection)
Keyboard icon is displayed when keyboard mode is active (automation is suspended)
Diagonal slash indicates that automation is suspended
Hour glass indicates amp initializing, swinging bells are coasting (Tower bells option) or the database is busy
Gears indicates schedule processing after boot-up or changes to schedules or settings

User home menu

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.

Quick function buttons

The remaining buttons on the home screen are individually configurable on Settings Customize Home screen. They can be set to ring bells (specific), play music (specific songs, random seasonal songs or a random album songs).

After tapping on one of these buttons, a confirmation window will pop up. All automatic ringing is suspended while the system waits for you to confirm that you are ready to play the selection. If you remain on this screen without tapping Yes, the system will timeout and return to automatic ringing in one hour. Tap No if you want to resume automatic ringing without playing the selection.
