About this app

Please Note! This is not a stand-alone app and will not function without SoundBox PC software installed on the same network. If you have problems - please email me - see below.

*** Important ***
•  WiFi must be enabled.
•  Firewall must allow port 8095 access (normally done by SoundBox).
•  "Enable Remote Device Connection" and "Timer" must be enabled in SoundBox "Remote Devices" settings. If it does not have these options, then you need a more recent version of SoundBox on your PC.

It is recommended to enter a "Remote Access Code" (Password) in SoundBox settings section. This prevents unauthorised access. This app will ask you to enter the password when you try to connect.

Talk names in different languages are transferred to SoundBox Timer. Some further work will be done on translation of this app.

When first started, the app searches the local network to find SoundBox. If found, the name and IP address of the SounBox server will be shown. If there is more than one SoundBox PC, they will be shown. Tap on the required server name to connect. If a timer has already been started, then the app will display this timer.

The app is very simple to use and has few options. These include the ability to restrict the display to show only the correct timers for that day. To do this, the meeting days need to be set correctly first.

If the timer is for a student talk, then a bell button will be shown and is enabled when the item goes over-time. The bell will sound through the Kingdom Hall speakers.

A WiFi indicator will be green when you have a good connection. It may be necessary to sit in a good location for WiFi.

The app will keep your device awake - so make sure your battery is OK first.

For more information, please see www.bennettfamily.org.uk/soundboxtimer.html. New beta releases will sometimes be available there.

I'm working to make this a reliable and useful app - so please help by letting me know of any problems. Thanks!

Great app! We currently use it for the timer functionality only. Will there be a OnlyT Version? This is the only reason why we have not switched over to the newer supported onlyt version. There is already one for IOS but the brother that is designated to control our timers only uses android.

It's impressive app and we are using it, very helpful. If the app can also display the sondbox speakers. message above or below the counting timer I guess it will be much more helpful, (the soundbox software have a feature to desplay soundbox speaker message, if any additional information has to be told to the speaker while he is on the podium. Making this app timer display for the soundbox as you know it), and I am looking forward to it. Thank you.
