7: Control key #2 behaviour

Checking the device status before sending a control frame from the key no. 2.

Overview

Info: Key no. 2 is not represented by any physical device expect of devices on association list. This functionality prevents of lack of reaction on pressing key no. 2 through polling devices from list one by one and checking thier actual states.

It is not possible to check the device status before sending a control frame from the key no. 2 if roller blind switch is chosen in parameter 14 (value 2)

If devices state is checked before sending asociation then parameter 19 should be set to value 0.

Sending commands with command class scene activation

Overview

The device offers the possibility of sending commands compatible with Command class scene activation. Information is sent to devices assigned to association group no. 3.

The user may expand the functionality of the button connected to inputs S1 and S2 by distinguishing the actions of keys connected to those inputs. For example: double click would activate the scene “goodnight” and triple click would activate the scene ”morning”
