I have just installed a II ultra with CBus addon. All sorts of things are controlled by CBus. As CBus doesn't have flags which can be set by Comfort how does it know the state of Comfort (away mode vacation mode etc)? Does it automatically pole comfort to check state each cycle, or does the state have to be pushed to CBus rather than allowing it to pull?
Thanks for that information, but could you be more specific?
I am wishing to change some settings in CBus which depend upon whether Comfort is in Away, Vacation, Perimeter or Disarmed modes. How would I pick up this information from within CBus?
Page 32 shows the security messages from Comfort to Cbus
Group 80 (hex) shows the armed/disarmed status but not if it is away, Night, Day when armed
To give status for the security mode (away, Day, night, vacation) you can use Evemts > Misc Events for Away Mode, Night Mode, Day Mode and use these Responses to send a command to a Cbus group address
Security Mode Response - send Cbus group address level to 0
Away Mode Response - send Cbus group address level to 1
Night mode Response - send Cbus group address level to 2
Dayt mode Response - send Cbus group address level to 3
