Dealer Setup

Currently when setting up timers and alarms the event which the users can select are a list of ten Crestron Home Events.

However in addition to this we have enabled the possibility to name these events to a friendly neam that your user will understand. Click on Event Settings to setup the Event Names.

We suggest you set these names first in the driver setup in the UI as this will make it easier to reference them in the setup app.

Adding Crestron Panels

In the setup app the ten events are shown with the names which you have setup in the Settings Pages of the driver.

Connect each of the required events to the appropriate Actions:

Sequence, Actions or Quick Actions.

Vacation Recorder for Crestron Lighting

Features

Provides extra security by giving the impression of an occupied house

This driver records your lighting changes throughout the day and stores them for future playback. This way the lighting can be set to an away or Vacation mode so that the apperance of an occupied house can be given.

Records Lighting Usage for recorded playback

Configuration settings allow you to exclude rooms from the playback to reduce energy consumption.

Provides Logic control for actions and events

The driver allows for controls via Actions and provides passthru events for enabling and disabling other logic based on a Home or Away Status.

Provides Daily Random events for Audio Visual Media Scenes

In addition to Lighting events to create a real impressions of an occupied house two sets of paired events are provided to drive media Scenes. These are randomised automatically on a daily basis to stop them from looking automated. One set of events is provided for Morning and one for evening to recreat the impression of normal house usage. These can trigger audio visual equipment or media scenes to be recalled.

Setup

Technology

This driver leverages the Crestron Home Web API.

Before loading the driver make a note of your API Authentication Token.

We have a “how to” article and video here

Dynamic Configuration

Other than entering the token above there is no other configuration to do on the driver.

The UI shown is based on the current Crestron Lighting Areas Scenes.

Setup New V4.2.0.0 Onwards

From verson 4.2 we have simplified and automated the connection and you simply load the driver to you system and add your licence key using the setup app, Web App or User Interface.

Mode: At Home

When the driver is in At Home mode the software will record the state of your crestron lighting every 5 minutes. You can see this data building up in the settings section of the driver and verify that everything is working correctly.

The stored data page shows

Total Percentage of Stored States

Daily Percentage of Stored States

The time the last save was done

The Number of states saved today.

The Connection Status of the Pyng Connection.

The driver records lighting in real time so to build up a full picture it records all the time even once it has a full record of data. To enable the driver to be used for “Away Mode” before a full weeks worth of data has been captured we will copy data from a full day to any days that dont have enough data.

Hence the minimum requirement is 80% on one day of the week. Once this has been captured you will be able to enable away mode.

When Away mode is active the System does not record current lighting states and this is indicated on the stored data page.

Mode: Away

When set to Away Mode the driver will recall the pre-recorded lighting scenes in all rooms which have not been disabled in settings. The driver will recall lighting scenes every five minutes to make the lighting changes as per the states recorded during the previous 7 days.

Exclude Rooms

In settings you can disable certain rooms. When a room is disabled its lighting wont be changed based on the recorded states.
