I've taken the basic training and installed the essentials software. I began installing devices and programming. I have a few questions I could use assistance with:
1. I cant quite figure out the occupancy/vacancy settings. I can only seem to take dimmers to a certain level. There are no other controls available for setting what happens on vacancy, timeouts, etc. There is just a single action available. How do you program these so you can have one action on occupancy and then another for vacancy?
2. Is there any way to program variable or IF/THEN logic statements? I think I can mostly come up with some creative work-arounds, but it sure would be great to see this available, even if only in inclusive software.
3. I want to turn on and off an exterior landscape transformer. It's not currently on a switch, so it looks like I would need a soft switch module, which is only available for inclusive software? This seems like a major limitation for such a basic need. Any other ideas to switch my landscape lights?
4. Visor Control Receiver - Is the antenna for homelink, RadioRa2, or both? Any experience with how well it works with in-car homelink transmistters? It seems like I could use some of the I/O ports to switch a landscape transformer relay if I have to. Is there any way to tally the status of my garage door on a keypad (using a sensor wired to an input)? It would be great to have a garage door button that either lit, or blinked based on the actual status of the garage door sensor.
Finally, it sounds like some of my questions may direct me to Homeworks QS. If so, and I wanted to go wireless, is the device pricing about the same as RadioRA2? How much more complicated is it?
