If your administrative user has given you access to the remote control, there will be a Remote button on your front panel home screen. This button brings up a screen that has a QR code on it. Scan the code with your phone or tablet to load the remote screen. Sometimes the device camera will read the code more reliably when the system screen is dimmed. Click the front panel power button (the gold light) to dim the screen. Most phone cameras will detect a QR code without a special app but they can be found at no cost for any platform.

Your home screen will now be available on your phone or tablet to activate music and ringing. The keyboard performance and recording screen will also be available.

With Internet access, the code will take you to your home screen served by the Chime Center web portal. Both the bell system and your phone/tablet must be connected to the Internet. Use your browser menu to save the remote control to your phone's home screen. You will be able to use your phone to control the bell system from anywhere you have an internet connection.

To review such a schedule or check to see if your system does not have a schedule, bring up the Schedule Review screen:

* Tap the Schedule button.

If there are no events scheduled, the screen will report "Nothing is scheduled."
  
Without an Internet connection there are two alternate ways to control the system.

* Tap the Settings button on the Home screen then Factory Reset on the settings screen. Next you will have three options,
 +
** Factory Reset - clears everything and starts over with a fresh system
 +
** Clear Almanac Only - leaves your schedule intact, but allows you to setup seasonal preferences and denominational music
 +
** Cancel - allows you to exit without clearing or changing anything.
  
If the system detects that it is connected to a local area network, it will attempt to serve the home screen to that network. In order for the QR code to work, the phone or tablet must be connected to the same network. Contact your system administrator to select the SSID and password to connect to this network. You will only be able to access the system when near the WiFi antenna for this network (in the same building).

Each screen of the guided setup questionnaire features a blue Information button that explains your choices in detail. All of the choices you make may be adjusted later using the menus listed below.
  
==== Access Point ====

==== Change the PIN security code ====
 +
We ship new systems with the security PIN for the first user (an administrator) set to '''1234.''' This can be changed for obvious reasons if the ringing system is in a public area. To reset the code:
 +
* Login or tap the Home icon at the top of the screen.
 +
* Tap the Settings button.
 +
* Tap the User Profile button.
 +
* Tap the Current PIN field and enter it.
 +
* Tap the New PIN field. Enter the new PIN you want to set with a length from four to ten digits.
 +
* Tap the Verify PIN field. Re-enter the new PIN.
 +
* Tap the Save PIN button
  
If no network is available, you can still connect to the AX system for remote control. When the supplied WiFi adapter antenna is installed, and not connected to a WiFi network, you can enable AP mode so the system will broadcast an SSID. The Remote screen will display this SSID and password for you to set your phone for connection. Scan the code with your phone or tablet to load the remote screen.

Getting started

Initial settings and schedules

IMPORTANT
Chime Master often sets up and programs systems prior to shipment, according to the needs of the client.
Read this section to avoid losing your settings.

Reviewing the schedule

To review such a schedule or check to see if your system does not have a schedule, bring up the Schedule Review screen:

  • Login with the PIN code (initially 1234).
  • Tap the Schedule button.
  • Tap the Review button.

If there are no events scheduled, the screen will report "Nothing is scheduled."

Use the Guided Setup

This installation setup will step you through a questionnaire about your denominational traditions that will inform how the SmartAlmanac™ chooses music throughout the liturgical year.

  • Login or tap the Home icon at the top of the screen.
  • Tap the Settings button on the Home screen then Factory Reset on the settings screen. Next you will have three options,
    • Factory Reset - clears everything and starts over with a fresh system
    • Clear Almanac Only - leaves your schedule intact, but allows you to setup seasonal preferences and denominational music
    • Cancel - allows you to exit without clearing or changing anything.

Each screen of the guided setup questionnaire features a blue Information button that explains your choices in detail. All of the choices you make may be adjusted later using the menus listed below.

Change the PIN security code

We ship new systems with the security PIN for the first user (an administrator) set to 1234. This can be changed for obvious reasons if the ringing system is in a public area. To reset the code:

  • Login or tap the Home icon at the top of the screen.
  • Tap the Settings button.
  • Tap the User Profile button.
  • Tap the Current PIN field and enter it.
  • Tap the New PIN field. Enter the new PIN you want to set with a length from four to ten digits.
  • Tap the Verify PIN field. Re-enter the new PIN.
  • Tap the Save PIN button

Front panel controls

Lighted power button

When power is restored to the system, it will power on after a delay to test the line voltage. The power light will blink green while the system is initializing. It will turn solid gold when the system is ready. There are three gestures you can make on the button.

Single-Click Display on/brightness
wakes up the backlight for the touch screen and adjusts the brightness
Double-click Stop playing
cancels any concert or ringing in progress (light momentarily turns red)
Press and hold for 1 second System shutdown
cancels concerts and waits to be sure you want to initiate Shut Down (light turns red, then blinks magenta).
If the button is not clicked again while blinking magenta, Shut down process will begin (light blinks blue).
Always shut down in this way before unplugging the power cord.
Wait until the button is solid blue before unplugging from AC power.
Clicking when the button is solid blue will restart the system.
If you unplugged the power cord, the system will restart automatically when plugged back in.

Touch screen

  • A single, light tap with your finger or the soft end of the supplied stylus is all that is required. Pressing on the display or using a pointed object will cause damage.
  • After several minutes of inactivity, it is normal for the screen to dim, lock and eventually go completely dark to save power. As long as the status light is gold, scheduled events will play normally.
