There is a timeclock mode called "Suspend" that we can assign to a button. The description says "Use the suspend mode to temporarily disable all timeclock events. Example: the home owner is having a party and does not want the lights to turn off at midnight as they normally would".
This suspend mode is not visible when we are editing/programming timeclock mode and timeclock event, so I assume this must be a built-in mode that would suspend all timeclock events as described in the description.
I have lights in several rooms that I control using occupancy/vacancy sensors to turn on and off automatically using:
- timeclock event called "sensors ON" to ENABLE them from sunset to sunrise.
- timeclock event called "sensors OFF" to DISABLE them to from sunrise to sunset.
These all work perfectly fine. There are times that I too want to disable the sensors so that the lights would not turn off automatically. For this purpose I assign a keypad button to switch to "Suspend" mode. When I tried this it wouldn't work, the lights were still controlled by the sensors to turn on and off automatically.
I tried this around 9PM when all the sensors are in ENABLE state.
What did I miss?
Is the suspend only suspending the "next" timeclock events and LEAVING the state as it is before we change the timeclock mode to "Suspend"? So in this case it would actually leave the sensors ENABLE all the times (24/7) until we switch out from suspend mode to normal mode.
