Unlock Settings

Simple settings, such as the screen brightness, are available to all everyone. To access complex settings, like the Patch or Network setup, you have to sign in to the settings. Each person that signs into the settings has access to a different selection of settings. The technical director can have access to all the settings. The lighting technician can only change the patch and load a show. The teenager lighting a rock concert can’t change any complex settings.

Control Settings Access

You can easily secure your Ray Console by controlling who has access to which settings:

Settings Login
Settings Account Management
Standard Password Reset

Account Management

The owner of the console can create Settings Accounts on the console. Each Settings Account has a name, password, and access profile. There are four standard access profiles. With a module update, the owner can create custom access profiles. Using the Settings Accounts, the console owner can make sure that no one changes anything they shouldn’t. Out of the box it is possible to:

Create 4 Settings Accounts
Set a unique password for each account
Set Settings Accounts to the Basic Settings Access Profile
Set Settings Accounts to the Admin Settings Access Profile

8 Settings Accounts

If you have a larger team of lighting technicians, it can be useful to create a few more settings accounts. Perhaps you have a number of different staff members and external organisations that use the lighting system. It is good practice in that case to give each of them a unique Settings Accounts. The 8 Settings Accounts module enables you to:

Create up to 8 unique Settings Accounts
Set Settings Accounts to the Patch Settings Access Profile
Set Settings Accounts to the Security Settings Access Profile

16 Settings Accounts

Unlock the full potential of Settings Accounts with the maximum 16 Settings Accounts. Create your own unique Settings Access Profiles that perfectly fit your organisations needs. Work with large and different team using all 16 Settings Access accounts. The 16 Settings Accounts module enables you to:

Create up to 16 unique Settings Accounts
Set a unique name and password for each account
Set Settings Accounts to the Basic, Patch or Security Settings Access Profiles
Create Customised Settings Access Profiles

Standard Password Reset

You don’t need to worry about forgetting your password. The password of all other Settings Accounts can be reset by the owner. The owner’s login details are the same on the console and on the website. A password can be reset on rayconsole.com or on the console (as long as it is online). A code is simply sent to the owners email address, with which a new password can be created.

What if I Downgrade?

If you have a subscription for 8 or 16 Settings Accounts and you let that subscription expire, then the following will happen. No accounts will be deleted from the console. The existing accounts will remain and can be used as normal. However, it will be impossible to change the name, password or Settings Access Profile of any account until the number of accounts has been reduced down 4. Of course you also will no longer be able to set accounts to the Patch or Security Settings Access Profiles.
