Initial setup of Spinitron's automation integration
Spinitron integrates successfully with many different automation systems.
Setting up automation involves:
Configure the automation system software at the station
We provide, on request, a guide to how this is done for various systems.
Enabling automation logging into Spinitron
We enable automation for the station. It's not something station admins can do.
Configure access control
For better security, you can set Spinitron to allow automation logging only from certain IP addresses or address ranges by setting up access control.
- Full automation in which Spinitron automatically creates playlists belonging to the automation user and logs automation spins into them
- Live assist where Spinitron inserts automation spins into the "live on-air" playlist of the DJ currently live logging
Establish operational procedures
If your station uses both full automation and live assist modes, you need to establish operational procedures to control the playlist mode. Spinitron has mode control features to make this easier.
Monitor the system
You can see recent activity in the automation logs.
