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.
Purchase price of $75 (plus tax & shipping) USD. CloudBoxes are ordered from your Cloud Cover Music account.
Stream from a mobile device by connecting through an amplifier, Bluetooth, AirPlay (iOS) or Chromecast (Android).
The iOS, Android and Amazon apps are downloadable for free on iOS 8+, Android 5+, and Amazon Fire Tablet.
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.
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 (Auto Login URL) 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!
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. If you need help on considering choices for your speakers and setup, this guide might be helpful to understand the options and weigh the pros and cons.
