The Scenario feature introduced in Comfigurator 3.2.7 allows a complete set of Responses as well as Events which trigger the Responses to be packaged as a Scenario file (with .crsx extension). The .crsx scenario file can be imported from the File > Import Scenario menu into your working cclx configuration file. This is very useful as it allows tested scenarios to be reused in future projects.
This is an example from an actual program. The requirements are
At night, between say 11 PM and 6 AM the next morning, if motion has not been detected by a PIR in the living room for 30 minutes, the system will auto-arm to Night Mode.
To program this from scratch, this is what is done;
Time Program 1 at 11 PM ,
Set Flag Flag01
If Timer Timer10 = 0 Then
It sets the Flag01
If the 30 minutes timer is not running, autoarm to Night Mode
Time Program 2 at 6 AM Response ClearAutoarmNight:
Clear Flag Flag01
PIR Zone Response = PIRStartTimer30M
Do AutoarmNighFlag After 1800 Seconds Using Timer10
This starts the timer for 30 minutes and arms to Night if Flag is set.
If Flag Flag01 <> 0 And SecurityMode = SecurityOff Then
This autoarms to Night mode is Flag is set
To export this as a Scenario, do File > Export Scenario. A window showing the Responses opens.
Select the Responses which are used.
Press and hold the Control key to select multiple Responses. In this case 4 Responses are selected;
The Scenario will automatically include the Events and Responses which call the selected Responses, eg Time Programs 1 and 2, Flag10, Timer10
The scenario is saved as a crsx file, see attached file
When the crsx file has been selected, Comfigurator will ask you to select the zone numbers and Output numbers) for the imported events, eg the PIR zone in this case
This allows you to assign a zone number for the PIR
Comfigurator will ask for Zones and Outputs in the scenario to be selected as these are physical objects that have to be connected to Comfort.
The other events, Time Programs, Flags and Timers are assigned automatically, using the next available number of each type. A Scenario Import Report is shown showing how they were allocated.
This scenario has been imported into your cclx configuration file.
A Scenario Library can be built up from such working scenarios which will be a useful resource for Comfort installers
