Usage

This Dynamic button driver is a flexible tool allowing you to achieve a number of different things with a single site Licence. You might setup a single button in a room to control a s Fire or a A Set of Buttons to control your Garden Sprinklers.

You can choose if the button appears on the Home page or just in the room and you can customise the Icon used on the Tile to make it appropriate to the usage.

BMS Example

For Example you might somply want to display the states of BMS Warnings in the property:

  • Displayed on the front page so users can at a glance check the status
  • Customise the Alert Reporting Text to show the current Status
  • Push Action on the button can be used to repoll the connected system

Sprinkler Example

  • Displayed on the front page so users can at a glance check the status
  • Customise the Names of the controlled Sprinklers
  • Group many Sprinklers into a single control

Setup

Using the Setup pages of the driver you can add and remove buttons and setup the naming and icons for each of the buttons you require.

The setup of the buttons is stored persistantly meaning once you setup a driver the settings will persist a reboot of the driver.

NB: Its also best practice to store a Gold cloud configuration when you are happy with your crestron home configuration and before and after making any changes.
