Multiple Smart SDR Smartlink Accounts

  • Question
  • Updated 10 months ago
First - V3 loaded - easy - working great - IOS & Windows remote, local and Maestro, single and MultiFlex.

Next the question .......

I am associated with 3 local radio clubs, plus some more distant ones and often do presentations for them.

This question may have been raised before but I could not find a recent relevant instance.

I can setup and operate with remote, but I am using my callsign and account but do not want to give out to the entire membership my details and then have them all logging into my home 6400 !

As I also hold the club callsign, can I have a separate instance that can be enabled or disabled ?  This way I can demonstrate and show what is available and offer them the ability to log in and try the system - but when I want the radio for ME - I can limit it to my login only, what I need is a demonstration account that can be put into a "Standby Mode"

I can also see the benefit of having a Flex in the club shack for the membership to access and operate - but we need to prove the concept first !

Many thanks

Yes, you can create a second SmartLink account.

Can some one elaborate how one could do this? Especially putting the second account into a "standby" mode.

Mike Walker is going to do a video showing step by step how to do this.

That seems this could be an obvious segue for Flex to have a table of accounts and it could be checked or unchecked to easily determine who and who cannot access the radio and any particular time.

Right now 3.0 only accepts having the radio on one account at a time. Whomever has the email and password can access the radio.

That's why I suggested it.

Is there a concept of a "quest" account that is separate and distinct from your own account?  This way you can give out the quest account credentials to your club or to a friend for a period of time.  Just like we have quest wi-fi logins in our home.  Then you can grant access but  limit and control functional privileges for quest account separately and also periodically change password for security. dan
