    General questions, new through course

    Hi I've gone through the level 1 online radio ra 2 and sivoia shades LP's.
    I have access to a radio ra 2 system at friends house and have a couple questions as I fix some issues.

    1. Does every minor change require a transfer? and does that transfer have to send out to all devices, not just the one's affected by the change?
    2. If i just rename a room in design, does that require activation and transfer?
    3. I've added a new switch and that required activation and transfer, but what about just changing the function of one of the buttons on the seetouch keypad? I would think just a transfer for that?

    the course really just showed the tabs themselves not if you make X change then you just need to transfer or in the case of rename a room i might not need to do anything? the home control+ app will just see if from the DB?

    I'd imagine this would all be clear once i do level 2 this summer.

    1. Yes and Yes

    2. No

    3. Only transfer. Activation is only needed once per device, generally.

    If you want to rename a room in the official app, you have to go through transfer too.

    The difference between level 1 and level 2
    1. Everything takes at least twice as long
    2. You can get into twice as much trouble

    No. Just my weird sense of humor. Level 2 just doubles capacity. No other functional difference that I have seen.

    There are some devices available in Inclusive (level 2) that are not available in Essentials. The wall box power modules, for instance.
