Control Your Music Anytime, From Anywhere

You can choose the device you prefer for playing music and overhead messages. The options are our dedicated CloudBox, our free mobile app (Android and iOS) or a web browser on your computer. All of the devices can be controlled remotely from a computer or mobile browser.

Why the CloudBox is Most Popular

The majority of our customers appreciate having a reliable, dedicated, set-and-forget CloudBox to play music and messages. Once the CloudBox is plugged into an ethernet connection or WiFi is configured, it will connect to Cloud Cover Music and start playing the music or messages you have selected from your account.

  • Tamper resistant – Limit access to prevent people changing music or messages to protect your brand
  • Remotely controlled (including volume) from the web or mobile
  • Locally stored music that automatically plays if the network connection is interrupted and auto resumes when restored
  • Auto-restart if power outage occurs
  • Simple plug-and-play setup — WiFi (2.4 and 5 GHz) requires a little configuration to join the network
  • Includes RCA connector for Aux connection to an amp or powered speaker from the 3.5mm line out

Purchase price of $75 USD. CloudBoxes are ordered from your Cloud Cover Music account.

Streaming from Your Mobile Device

Stream from a mobile device by connecting through an amplifier, Bluetooth, AirPlay (iOS) or Chromecast (Android).

The iOS and Android apps are downloadable for free on iOS 8+ and Android 5+.

Keep in mind that amber alerts, phone calls and other apps can cause interruptions, so consider disabling other activities on the device that you don’t want your customers to hear! Kiosk Mode is a quick configuration to lock the device and avoid interruptions.

Streaming From Your Computer

Log into your Cloud Cover Music account in a web browser to stream directly to any connected amp or amplified speakers. The computer can be connected using a headphone/line out with RCA into your amplifier or 3.5mm line into amplified speakers. Your computer may also support playing wireless Bluetooth speakers (range 30-60 feet based on manufacturer), Chromecast from Chrome, or AirPlay. See this equipment guide to help understand the options that may best suit your needs.

To make things simple, if you operate multiple locations you can create a bookmark for each location that is “click-and-go”, with the stations, mixes and schedules of your administrators’ choosing.

Note for Apple Safari browser: tabs that are not in the foreground will “sleep”, so make sure the tab playing music is in its own window!

Speakers, Amps and Installation

Although Cloud Cover Music does not supply speakers, amps or do installations, we hear from thousands of customers and work with partners all over the US and Canada who can help make recommendations and perform installations. We also partner with Digital Signage companies and work either directly integrated or in tandem with them to be the music and audio message provider.
