The settings menu allow you to set preferences and features to match your congregation and time zone.

Time Strike Melody

You can precede the hour strike with a chime melody suitable for your bells. Use the pull down menu to select the melody you would like to use.

Edit Remote Buttons

When the system is in Standby mode (not playing, displaying the current time), buttons 1 through 8 can be programmed to manually trigger selections to play. Buttons 1 through 4 are available on the optional mini remote control. All eight buttons are available to the mobile app Church Bell Remote. In addition, all eight button programs correspond to macro codes 7901 through 7908. You can use these macro selection codes to schedule automatic play of the selections programmed in the buttons, including Annual Events and Non-Recurring Events.

Pull down the button code you wish to program F1 through F8 in the left field. After you have edited the changes, click Put Function into Device to transfer the settings to the carillon.

Buttons 1 through 4’s four-character (short) name are displayed on the lower line of the carillon’s display. These can be edited in the field to the right of the button pull-down selector. The Church Bell Remote mobile app uses the first two characters of the button’s short name to determine which icon to display for the function. The Mobile App Label allows you to give the function a more meaningful long name that will display beneath the button in the mobile app.

Synchronize Clock

The internal bell controller clock can be synchronized to internet timeservers using the time zone you set in Windows on the host computer. If the check box for Automatically Synchronize Date and Time is selected, the time will set every day if the Management Suite is running and left at the main menu. Manual synchronizing can be done by clicking the button on this settings tab. If your network does not access the Internet and you have your own time server, the Premium Management Suite’s Administrator options allow you to specify the time server’s address.

Suspend Automation Timeout

You can temporarily suspend the automatic schedules from ringing the bells. Schedule suspension is activated either by holding the front panel '0' button for two seconds, or pressing the Automation Off button on the Church Bell Remote mobile app. In case you forget to toggle the schedules back on, they will resume after this timeout expires.

You can set the timeout to resume automatic operation in one to twenty hours.

This timeout setting does not affect the fixed one hour timeout for manual function cueing.

Seasonal Options

Make the settings described below then click the Put Seasonal Options in Device button to update the carillon.

Automatic Daylight Saving Time

Set this option to Yes if the system is to automatically set the clock forward and back for Daylight Saving Time.
