Time Boss Cloud

Time Boss Cloud

Time Boss Cloud (TBC) is the small freeware program for parents to change settings of Time Boss Pro on children's computer from internet.

TBC should be installed on the computer or (and) Android phone of the parent (or parents).
TBC works on all Windows systems and on Android mobile.

TBC does not need Time Boss Pro installed. TBC and Time Boss Pro are fully independent programs.
TBC allows on children's computer (with Time Boss Pro) to:
  1. Change the last remaining time (computer, programs, websites...) on current day.
  2. Add, change time grants.
  3. Show the last screenshot taken on children's computer.
  4. Show the event log on children's computer.
Kid's computer or device can be offline when Time Boss Control is active on parent's computer (mobile). In this case all changes will take effect at first connection of children's computer to internet.
Using TBC you can manage several children's computers.

How to configure TBC correctly?

TBC can supports version 3.18 and higher of Time Boss Pro on children's computer.

At firts you should allow Time Boss Pro on children's computer to use remote control using TBC:
  1. Please activate in Time Boss Pro the option 'Enable' on panel 'Remote control from parents computer using Time Boss Cloud' (TB-> Control panel-> Options->Network).
  2. The field 'Cloud' should contain cloud.nicekit.com (by default) or nicekit.com, and should be the same in TB and in TBC on all devices!
    Both clouds (cloud.nicekit.com and nicekit.com) are located in Frankfurt am Main (Germany).
  3. Write the computer identifier from yellow text box (use 'Copy' button at right) to any text file or send it to yourself via email.
    The computer identifier contains children's computer name and unique ID, e.g.: 'REM_PC *284c9cfe1-4892-a9eb-91fecc5760f9*'.
  4. Save settings and close the control panel of Time Boss Pro. The remote cloud control will activate after 2 minutes after first (since activating this option) kids login in Windows.

Now you can try to get settings from children's computer.

Select the children's computer and press button 'Get data!'.

You should input password if the password is active in Time Boss Pro on children's computer.

When you have gotten data from children's PC you can select any action.

On Android mobile use swipe to navigate between actions tabs.

Action 'Remaining time. Computer.' allows to change the remainig time on children's PC for the current day.

When you have changed settings (remaining time for PC, browsers, grants) you should send settings to children's computer using button 'Send data!'.

If the children's PC is online (connected to internet), all changes will take effect in 1 minute.
If the children's PC is offline, all changes will take effect at first connection of children's computer to internet.

If you can not connect to remote PC then check:
  1. The computer identifier (the text from yellow box in TB-> Control panel-> Options-> Network) should be same on TB Pro and on all TBCs.
  2. The CLOUD should be the same on TB Pro and on all TBCs: ALWAYS nicekit.com or ALWAYS cloud.nicekit.com.
