If you would like to dedicate an iPad to control the music in a specific room, you can configure the iOS App so that it is essentially locked down to control the specific room. This can be a perfect solution for users that are overwhelmed by Apps, or if you want to mount an iPad on the wall (or tabletop mount) to control just that room.

To lock down your iOS App, you need to configure the CasaTunes settings in the iOS Settings App.

  1. Start by selecting the specific room and source you want to use in the dedicated room
  2. Press the Home button on your iOS device to return to the Home screen
  3. Select the iOS Settings App
  4. Scroll down and select CasaTunes
  5. Scroll down the CasaTunes settings until you see the ADVANCED settings group
  6. Disable Display Rooms - This prevents the customer changing rooms
  7. Disable Display Sources - This prevents the customer changing sources
  8. Disable Display Settings - This prevents the customer from entering and changing the CasaTunes Settings in the CasaTunes App
