The Chime Master AX Remote control finally brings friction-lessimmediate, frustration free and secure control to the bell ringing world. Provided your bell ringing system has an Internet connection and your phone or tablet also has a good carrier broadband or WiFi data connection, one scan of a QR code will provide control of the system anywhere you go. Not everyone has Internet at their church, so we've provided alternative solutions for the same functionality when you are close to the carillon.
== Normal usage Setup ==
Tapping the Remote button on your front panel home the system's touch screen brings up a screen that has a Quick Response (QR) code on it. Scan the code with your phone or tablet to load the remote control page on your device.
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 Internet connection.
=== Scanning the code ===
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 if unable to scan at full brightness.
=== Save to home screen === The first use of the remote app will be in your phone's browser. If you use your browser's Add To Home feature, it may appear on the home screen, or it may appear in your listing of all apps (from where you can drag it out to a home screen). If your secure authentication expires, you will need to update it by scanning a new QR Code on the bell ringing system. Look for a banner at the bottom of future app releases to install the app to your smart device home screen. == Functionality ===Your home screen will now be available on your phone or tablet to activate quick functions for music and ringing.
