CONTROL

The control features of the OmniLT make it easy and convenient to control almost any light or appliance from the console or over the telephone. You may also have your heating and air conditioning (HVAC) under control of the system, which will allow you to save energy dollars by setting the temperature appropriately when you are home, asleep, or away.

Furthermore, the OmniLT can be used to program lights to make your home look occupied as a deterrent to potential thieves.

The methods that the OmniLT uses to control different things are:

UPB switches, modules, and keypads for lights and appliances

CentraLite loads and relays on a LiteJet and Elegance lighting system

RadioRA switches and dimmers on a Lutron RadioRA lighting system

ALC switch modules for lights and appliances

X-10, X-10 Pro, Leviton, PCS, ACT, Lightolier, and compatible modules for lights and small appliances.

HAI Communicating Thermostats for controlling Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning Systems.

Programmable Energy Saver Modules (PESM) for central heating and air conditioning systems.

Direct Relay Control for sprinklers, lighting, electric heating, etc.

An OmniLT will control:

¾ 16 UPB switches, modules, and keypads (2 rooms of HLC Lighting)

¾ 16 CentraLite loads and relays

¾ 16 RadioRA switches and dimmers

¾ 16 ALC switch modules

¾ 16 X-10 modules (one house code)

¾ 2 PESMs or Voltage Outputs (expandable to 10)

¾ 2 HAI Communicating Thermostats

OmniLT also has 8 internal "flags" that are used for programming conditionals and running buttons.

About UPB

UPB is a powerline communications standard for lighting and home control. UPB is a robust, two-way digital powerline carrier communications protocol which transmits signals over the existing wires in a home. UPB can coexist peacefully with X-10 systems, intercoms, baby monitors, speakers, etc. that communicate over the powerline.

Using a Powerline Interface Module (PIM), OmniLT sends UPB commands over the existing electrical wiring to special switches, modules, and keypad controllers (UPB devices) that are designed with UPB technology. UPB switches are two-way devices, so

OmniLT knows the actual status of the switch when it is controlled locally. In addition, UPB switches, modules, and keypads can be used to trigger macros in the OmniLT controller.

14

When set to UPB, the OmniLT controller can:

¾

Send commands (on, off, bright, dim and level) to individual switches and modules

¾ Receive commands and status from individual switches and modules

¾

¾

¾

¾

¾

Send commands to keypad controllers to change scenes and control LED backlight behind the keys

Receive commands when buttons are pressed on keypad controllers to activate controller macros

Send Link commands to switches, modules, and keypad controllers to activate scenes

Receive Link commands when a button is pressed on a switch or on a keypad controller to activate controller macros

Send “Status Request” messages to switches to update their status in the controller

¾

Receive the UPB Acknowledgement pulse that indicates that a switch has properly executed a command

HAI Lighting Control (HLC) Format

HAI Lighting Control (HLC) combines HAI UPB™ Wall Switches, Dimmers, and Modules, HAI UPB™ Room Controllers, and

HAI UPB™ House Controllers to create lighting scenes that set the proper mood and ambiance for various activities.

HLC format is a defined structure for configuring, programming, and operating all the HLC lighting devices in your home. HLC format consists of 2 rooms with up to 8 HLC devices in each room. OmniLT supports 2 rooms of HLC lighting. OmniLT can control up to 16 HLC devices.

HAI manufactured UPB™ devices (collectively referred to as HLC devices) can be configured using an Omni console or

OmniTouch touchscreen connected to the OmniLT controller. Other UPB™ devices may be used in the HLC structure, but cannot be configured using the OmniLT controller; they must be configured using a PC running the UPB™ UPStart configuration software – see Configuring HLC Devices.

About Rooms

A room of HLC lighting consists of 8 consecutive unit numbers, starting at Unit 1 (i.e. Room 1 = Units 1-8 and Room 2 = Units

9-16). Each room can consist of a maximum of 8 HLC devices, configured as follows:

¾ Up to 7 HAI UPB™ Wall Switches, Dimmers, and/or Modules (for controlling up to 7 lighting loads in a room or area)

¾ 1 or more Room Controllers (set a scene in a room, turn the room on and off, and dim and brighten the room)

¾ 1 House Controller (for controlling up to 8 rooms of HLC lighting)

¾ 1 or more House Controllers (used as a general purpose 8 button keypad controllers)

The first unit number in each room (i.e. 1 and 9) is reserved for controlling the room. The name for this unit should reflect the room name (e.g. Kitchen, Great Room, Theater, etc.) HLC Wall Switches, Dimmers, or Modules cannot be programmed to these unit numbers. If one or more Room Controllers are used, the first Room Controller should be set to the first unit number in the group (i.e. Unit 1); additional Room Controllers can be used by setting each to any other unused unit number in the group

(i.e. Units 2-8).

About Room Controllers

The HAI UPB™ 6-Button Room Controller allows for lighting control of a room where HAI UPB™ Wall Switches, Dimmers, and Modules have been installed. From a Room Controller the room can be turned off (all loads in the group are turned off), turned on (all loads in the group are turned on), brightened (all loads are brightened from their current level), dimmed (all loads are dimmed from their current level), or set to one of 4 lighting scenes (A-D).

Room Controller LED Indicators

When the room is turned on, the LED indicator behind the “On” button is illuminated and all others are turned off. When the room is turned off, the LED indicator behind the “Off” button is illuminated and all others are turned off. When the room is brightened, the LED indicator behind the “On” is illuminated and all others are turned off. When the room is dimmed, the LED indicator that is currently illuminated stays on. When the room is set to a lighting scene (A-D), the LED indicator behind the respective scene letter is illuminated and all others are turned off.

15

When “Status Tracking” is enabled (this is the default setting), OmniLT keeps track of the exact status of each unit even when a lighting scene is initiated by the Room Controller. Room Controllers also keep track of when individual switches in a room are turned on and off. When all of the lighting loads in a room are turned off, the “Off” indicator is illuminated. If any of the lighting loads in a room are turned on at an HAI UPB™ Wall Switch or Dimmer, the “On” indicator will illuminate and the “Off” indicator is turned off. Likewise, if the “On” indicator or one of the scene indicators is illuminated, and then all of the lighting loads are turned off at HAI UPB™ Wall Switch Dimmers, the “Off” indicator will illuminate and any others are turned off.

About House Controllers

The HAI UPB™ 8-Button House Controller allows for controlling both rooms of lighting where HAI UPB™ Wall Switches,

Dimmers, and Modules have been installed. It can also be configured as a general purpose 8 button keypad controller used to trigger 8 different macro programs in the OmniLT controller or to toggle between two different actions (i.e. turn lighting load on...turn lighting load off) each time a pushbutton is pressed.

When used to control rooms of lighting in the HLC structure, each button on the House Controller is used to toggle all of the lights in the respective room on and off. When the room is turned on, the LED indicator behind the respective button is illuminated and all of the lights in the room are turned on. When the room is turned off, the LED indicator behind the respective button is turned off and all of the lights in the room are turned off. If a lighting load in the respective room is turned on, the LED indicator behind the button is illuminated. When all lighting loads in the respective room are turned off, the LED indicator behind the button is turned off.

When used to control rooms of lighting in the HLC structure, each House Controller controls both rooms (i.e. Room 1-2). To configure a House Controller to control both rooms, it must be set to the last unit number in one of the respective rooms. For example, set the House Controller to Unit 8 or 16 to control rooms 1-2. This allows you to have up to 2 House Controllers that control rooms 1-2.

Within the HLC structure, House Controllers can also be configured as a general purpose 8 button keypad controller that is used to trigger 8 different macro programs in the OmniLT. When configuring a House Controller as a general purpose 8 button keypad controller, it must be set to a unit number between the first and last unit number in a room (i.e. 2-7 or 10-15). When configured as a general purpose 8 button keypad controller, programs must be created in the OmniLT controller for the LED indicator behind each button to function.

About CentraLite

CentraLite is a centralized lighting control system that uses hardwired lighting control technology to control lighting loads, fans, and mechanical low voltage relays.

CentraLite lighting scenes are used to control groups of lights which are preset to turn on to various levels of dimming.

When set to CentraLite, the OmniLT controller can:

¾ Send commands (on, off, and level) to individual loads and relays

¾ Receive status (on and off) from individual loads and relays

¾ Execute scene commands (on and off) to control of up to 255 CentraLite lighting scenes

¾ Receive commands when buttons are pressed on a CentraLite keypad (up to 127)

About Lutron RadioRA

Lutron RadioRA uses wireless communication technology to control lighting. Each Switch or Dimmer controls one Zone, or area, of lighting in a RadioRA system. Accessory Switches and Dimmers are used to control the lights locally from up to 9 additional locations. Master controls provide control and monitoring for all the lights in a RadioRA system.

Phantom Buttons are “virtual” buttons in the RS232 Interface. Though there are no physical buttons that represent these Phantom

Buttons, they work very similarly to buttons on RadioRA Master Controls. Phantom Buttons are intended to give the RS232

Interface control over multiple RadioRA Switches and Dimmers with one command. To control more than one device at one time,

Phantom Buttons are recommended.

A Zone is any individual RadioRA Switch or Dimmer.

16

When set to RadioRA, the OmniLT controller can:

¾

Send commands (on, off, and level) to individual Switches and Dimmers

¾ Receive status (on and off) from individual Switches and Dimmers

About ALC

ALC is intended for installation in homes, which have been pre-wired for installation of ALC system products. OmniLT controls lights and appliances by sending commands over the ALC signal wiring to ALC Switch Modules. ALC Switches communicate with the OmniLT over low voltage signal wire. They are two-way devices, so the controller always knows the actual status of the switch. In addition, ALC switches can be used to set scenes by triggering macros in OmniLT.

When ALC Lighting Control Modules are being used, it is also possible to "ramp" the lighting level of an ALC Dimmer Switch to a new level at a controllable ramp rate.

ALC Module Types

The ALC modules types are: Dimmer Switch, Relay Switch, Slave Switch, Program Switch, and 4-Button Scene Switch Modules.

About X-10

The OmniLT controls lights and appliances by sending commands over your existing electrical wiring to special switches, outlets, receptacles, and modules, collectively referred to as X-10. Each module (or group of modules) is assigned a House Code and a

Unit Number so that the OmniLT can control the modules individually. When a module hears a command from the OmniLT for its house code and unit number, it executes the command.

There are 3 different X-10 formats: Standard X-10 (Preset Dim), Extended X-10 (Extended Level), and Compose.

Any module that is "X-10 Compatible" will work with the OmniLT. The modules come in various types.

House Code

OmniLT can control up to 16 lighting and appliance devices. Each device (switches, modules, and keypad) has its own Unit

Number (1-16). The “House Code” is used to configure the lighting protocol format such as: Standard X-10, Extended X-10,

Lightolier Compose, UPB (open UPB format where you can use the programming capability in the OmniLT controller to communicate with the UPB network), Lutron RadioRA, CentraLite, or HAI Lighting Control (HLC). Only one House Code can be configured on OmniLT.

Unit Numbers

OmniLT systems have 36 total Unit Numbers. They consist of HLC, UPB, CentraLite, RadioRA, ALC, Compose, or X-10 module unit numbers, hardwire voltage output unit numbers, and internal flag unit numbers as follows:

OmniLT Unit Numbers

Scrolling Through Names

The OmniLT stores names for Units, Zones, Buttons, Codes, Temperatures, and Messages so that you don't have to remember that "UNIT 5" is the "DEN LIGHT" and "ZONE 1" is the "FRONT DOOR". In general, any time you enter a unit, zone, button, code, temperature, or message number, you can press the down arrow key to display its name, then use the up and down arrow keys to scroll through the list of other names. This is true when entering commands and programming on the console. Only named items are displayed on an OmniTouch touchscreen.

Controlling Units

The control menu is used when controlling lights and appliances. To enter the control menu, from the top-level display or from the main menu, press the 1 (CTRL) key on the console keypad. OmniLT will automatically display the first named item in that list. The down arrow key can then be used to scroll through the list, and the ' # ' key is used to select the item. If the specific item number is known, enter the item number followed be the ' # ' key, or scroll up and down among the named items.

After the unit has been selected, press the ' # ' key. The console will display:

Configuring Lighting Scenes in an HLC Room

Lighting scenes are created by configuring light levels for HLC lighting devices in a room. Each HLC device in a room can store up to four different preset lighting scenes (Scenes A-D) and one “On” Scene (preset lighting levels for each device when the room is turned on). To set a lighting scene using the Omni console, adjust all of the HLC devices in the room to the desired lighting levels. The desired lighting levels (0% - 100%) may be set manually at the switch, or by issuing commands from the OmniLT controller. After the desired lighting levels are set, use the 6 (SET) command to save the new “light levels” for each device in the selected room.

Living Room SET

1=ON

When the scene command is transmitted (either using a Room Controller or by the OmniLT controller), each HLC device in the specified room will brighten or fade to its preset level for the selected scene.

Ramp Command (ALC)

When ALC Switch Modules are being used, it is possible to ramp the lighting level of an ALC Dimmer Switch to a new level at a selectable ramp rate. Only ALC Dimmer Switches respond to the Ramp command.

Press the 5 (RAMP) key to select the ramp command. The keypad will then prompt you for the desired ramp rate:

ENTER

MINUTES (1-99) #=H/M/S

The rate specifies the time it takes the switch to go from full off to full on, or from full on to full off. Thus a level change from full off to 50% on will take half the time specified.

Before any digits are entered, the ' # ' key may be used to switch between specifying the rate in minutes, seconds, and hours.

After you choose between minutes, seconds, and hours, enter the rate (2-99 seconds, 1-99 minutes, or 1-10 hours).

Next, enter a number (0-100) to indicate the final lighting level (intensity) desired.

Enter 0, followed by the ' # ' key, to turn the lights that are part of the selected group off. Enter 1, followed by the ' # ' key, to set the lights that are part of the selected group to predefined lighting levels.

To set the lights in the selected group to a predefined scene, enter the Scene number 2-13 (which corresponds to Scene A-L, respectively), followed by the ' # ' key. All lights that are part of the selected group are set to the predefined lighting levels for the selected Scene.

Timed Commands

21

The timed commands allow a units to be turned on or off for a specified period of time. The unit may be turned On for 1-99

(minutes or seconds), or 1-18 hours, then Off; or turned Off for 1-99 (minutes or seconds) or 1-18 hours, then On.

Lighting units (1-16) may also be dimmed or brightened for a specified period of time. The unit may be dimmed (1-9) steps for

1-99 (minutes or seconds), or 1-18 hours, then brightened back to its previous level; or brightened (1-9) steps for 1-99 (minutes or seconds), or 1-18 hours, then dimmed back to its previous level.

To enter a timed command, you must first enter the unit that you want to control. From the control menu, enter the unit number

(or scroll to it using the arrow keys), then press the ' # ' key.

To enter a time, press the 9 (TIM) key. Before any digits are entered, the ' # ' key may be used to switch between minutes, seconds, and hours. After you choose, enter a time (1-99 for seconds & minutes, and 1-18 for hours). Once the time is entered, the control menu is redisplayed with the specified times shown.

For example:

Entry Lights For 2H

0=OFF 1=ON 2=DIM 3=BRT

Status of a Unit

To see the status of a unit, from the control menu, press the ' # ' key. The last command along with any time (hh:mm:ss) remaining on a timed command will be displayed.

Entry Lights 1:22:10

At this point, one of the menu choices may be entered or the ' * ' or ' # ' key may be pressed to redisplay the menu.

Note: If an X-10 signal is received over the powerline, OmniLT will automatically update the status of the X-10 unit.

Internal Flags

The easiest way to define a flag it to refer to it as a "virtual relay". A flag can be in one of three separate states: On, Off, or set to a value between 0 and 255. If a flag has a value of 1-255, it is considered "On". If a flag has a value of 0 it is considered "Off".

Flags are a powerful programming tool that can be used in several ways to accomplish advanced programming routines. Any

Flag can also be used as a counter. Counters can be incremented, decremented, or set to a specific value (0 to 255).

When a counter is decremented to zero, the "When Unit Off" macro is executed. A counter will not decrement below zero. The counter will, however, roll over from 255 to 0 when incremented. The "When Unit Off" macro will be executed when the counter rolls over. This allows two counters to be cascaded to form a larger counter.

When the counter is incremented from 0 to 1, the "When Unit On" macro will now execute. This will allow you to execute a command when the Flag is incremented (counting up) from zero.

The Set command is used to set the counter to a value from 0 to 255. No macros are executed when the counter is set to zero or when the counter is changed from zero using the set command. This allows a counter to be reset without executing macros or programs associated with the counter counting to zero. Turn the Flag On or Off to have the associated macro execute. When the

Flag is turned Off, its value is set to zero (0). When the Flag is turned On, its value is set to one (1). The counter is considered

On for program conditions if it is nonzero (1-255).

Flags can be turned Off, On, Decremented (DEC), Incremented (INC), Set, and Timed ON/OFF.

Controlling Outputs

22

The OmniLT has 2 (expandable to 10) outputs that can be used to switch relays. Outputs 1 and 2 are controlled by unit numbers

27 and 28. These are hardwired outputs that are connected directly through the OmniLT and not through a module. If you have something connected to these outputs, such as a sprinkler system, your dealer will explain its operation.

Outputs cannot be brightened or dimmed.

Outputs are not affected by All ON or All Off commands.

All On / Off

The All On/Off menu is used to turn all lighting unit numbers on and off.

Note: UPB, CentraLite, and RadioRA devices are not affected by the OmniLT “All On” or “All Off” command. To achieve this functionality, we suggest the following:

UPB: Program a Link into each device that will respond to an OmniLT “All On” and “All Off” command program. For example:

In each UPB switch that will respond to “All Off” and “All On”, program a Link (in this example, Link 50 is used) that will go to 100% when activated (turned on). Then write the following programs in the OmniLT controller:

WHEN ALL ON: LINK 50 ON

WHEN ALL OFF: LINK 50 OFF

CentraLite: Program the “All On” and “All Off” macro to execute an All On Scene and an All Off Scene on the

CentraLite.

RadioRA: Program the “All On” and “All Off” macro to execute Phantom Button 16 (All On) and Phantom button 17 (All Off).

For example:

WHEN ALL ON: PHANTOM BUTTON 16 ON

WHEN ALL OFF: PHANTOM BUTTON 17 ON

This All On/Off menu is also used to control Leviton Scenes, RadioRA Phantom Buttons, UPB Links, and CentraLite Scenes.

From the top-level display or from the main menu, press the 4 (ALL) key on the console keypad.

ALL

0=OFF 3=LINK

ALL

4=PHANTOM 5=CENLIT

All Lights On

At the ALL prompt, press the 1 (LIGHTS ON) key. The console will beep, and a command will be sent that turns on all specified

X-10 or ALC units or HLC Rooms. X-10 Appliance Modules do not respond when the All Lights On command is sent. By factory default, all lighting units respond to the All-On command.

NOTE: The All On function can be changed, if desired - See Set Up Misc, All On And All Off.

All Off

At the ALL prompt, press the 0 (OFF) key. The console will beep, and a command will be sent that turns off all specified X-10 and ALC units and HLC Rooms. By factory default, all lighting units respond to the All-Off command.

NOTE: The All Off function can be changed, if desired - See Set Up Misc, All On And All Off.

23

Leviton Scene Control

OmniLT supports Leviton Scene Control (a feature found in certain Leviton Switches. There are 16 Scenes that can be set and executed. The Leviton Switches are divided into "lighting groups" of four units each. Each of these lighting groups can be set to four different Scenes. Once the Scenes have been set up, a command can be sent to the units in that Scene to simultaneously return to the preprogrammed lighting level.

Scene

There are 16 Scenes that can be set and executed. The X-10 units (unit numbers 1-16) are divided into "lighting groups" of four units each. Each of these lighting groups can be set to four different Scenes. Scenes 1-4 apply to the first four unit numbers

(units 1-4), Scenes 5-8 to the next four unit numbers (units 5-8), and so on. Thus an easy correspondence is made between Scene numbers and unit numbers.

Scene Commands

Scene Commands are used to Set Scenes, issue a Scene On command, and issue a Scene Off command. To issue Scene

Commands, press the 2 (SCENE) key. You are prompted to enter a Scene number.

ENTER SCENE:

1-16

Enter the Scene number (1-16) followed be the ' # ' key.

SCENE 1

0=OFF 1=ON 2=SET

Scene Set Command

The Scene Set command is used to set up Scenes for a lighting group. Set the desired lighting level for each of the units in the lighting group for the first Scene. The desired lighting level may be set manually at the switch, or by a command issued from the controller. After the desired lighting levels are set, press the 2 (SET) key to save the first Scene for that group. Commands are sent to each of the four units in that group to instruct each unit to save its current lighting level as the lighting level for the Scene.

Repeat these steps to set up each of the remaining three Scenes for that lighting group.

Scene On Command

Once the Scenes have been set up, press the 1 (ON) key to command the four units in that Scene to return to the lighting level set by the Scene Set command for that Scene.

24

Scene Off Command

Once the Scenes have been sent, press the 0 (OFF) key to command the four units in that Scene to turn off.

Notes:

1. When sending Scene Commands, the controller must be configured to allow Extended Code transmissions.

2. The Scene Commands always apply to a group of four consecutive units, which are units 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16. You must address the units accordingly so that the desired units fall into the appropriate lighting groups.

3. The actual Extended Code Scene commands use a "group reference" that matches that sent by a Leviton Wall-Mounted

Scene Controller set to the same address as the first unit in the lighting group. This allows wall-mounted controllers to be easily used for manual Scene selection.

UPB Links

In a UPB network, all control operations are done using Links. OmniLT can transmit and receive up to 250 Links on the UPB network. Links are used to logically “connect” events on one or more devices to actions on one or more other devices. When two or more different devices share a common Link, they are said to be “linked” together. They can now communicate with each other over the powerline using the Link as a common identifier in all of their communications.

The power of Links is that you can “link” more than two devices together. For example, one keypad controller pushbutton can be linked to four UPB Wall Switches allowing the single press of that pushbutton to trigger all four lights to go to preset or absolute levels. In addition UPB Wall Switches allow for a preset light level and fade rate to be associated with each Link.

Activating and Deactivating Links

A special UPB command called “Link On” (activate) is used to command all of the devices that have the same Link to go to their preset light levels at their preset fade rates.

For instance, in our “All On” and “All Off” example, when “Link 50 On” is transmitted by OmniLT, each UPB Wall Switch with

Link 50 will go to 100% to achieve the “All On” effect. Other “Link On” (activate) commands may be transmitted that cause

Wall Switch ‘1’ to go to a desired level at a specified fade rate and Wall Switch ‘2’ to go to a different level at a different fade rate. The ability to send more than one device to its preset level at a preset fade rate with a single command is known as activating a Link. Likewise, pressing a pushbutton on a 6-Button or 8-Button Keypad can send the “Link On” (activate) command.

A special UPB command called “Link Off” (deactivate) is used to command all of the devices that have the same Link to go to

0% at their preset fade rate. For instance, in our “All On” and “All Off” example, when “Link 50 Off” is transmitted by OmniLT, each Wall Switch with Link 50 will go to 0% to achieve the “All Off” effect.

Setting a Link (Lighting Scenes)

Lighting scenes are created by pre-configuring light levels and fade rates in one or more UPB devices that get “activated” and

“deactivated” by a Link command or button press on a 6-Button or 8-Button Keypad.

Each UPB Wall Switch can hold up to sixteen different preset light levels (0% - 100%) that can be “linked” to the OmniLT controller or to a pushbutton on a 6-Button or 8-Button Keypad.

OmniLT can “set” each of the 250 possible Links. The “Link Set” command is used to set up lighting scenes for a lighting group.

To set a “lighting scene” using OmniLT, adjust all of the UPB Wall Switches with the pre-configured Link to the desired lighting levels. The desired lighting levels may be set manually at the switch, or by a command issued from OmniLT. After the desired lighting levels are set, the “Link Set” command can be transmitted by OmniLT to save the new “light levels” for each of the devices pre-configured with the specified Link.

25

Executing Phantom Buttons

OmniLT can turn on and turn off each of the 17 possible Phantom Buttons. Phantom Buttons must be pre-programmed into the

RS-232 interface or Chronos. Phantom Button 16 is always assigned to “All On” (if the Phantom button is turned on or off) and

Phantom Button 17 is always assigned to “All Off” (if the Phantom button is turned on or off).

To issue Phantom Button commands, from the top-level display or from the main menu, press the 4 (ALL) key on the console keypad, and then press the 4 (PHANTOM) key. You are prompted to enter a Phantom Button (1-17).

ENTER BUTTON:

1-17

Enter the Phantom Button number (1-17) followed be the ' # ' key.

When a Phantom Button is turned on, all of the devices that are pre-programmed with that Phantom Button will go to their preset light levels. When a Phantom Button is turned off, all of the devices that are pre-programmed with that Phantom button will turn off.

Executing CentraLite Scenes

OmniLT can turn on and turn off each of the 255 possible CentraLite Scenes. To issue CentraLite Scenes commands, from the top level display or from the main menu, press the 4 (ALL) key on the console keypad, and then press the 5 (CENLIT) key. You are prompted to enter a Scene (1-255).

ENTER SCENE:

1-255

Enter the CentraLite Scene number (1-255) followed be the ' # ' key.

CENLIT SCENE 1

0=OFF 1=ON

When a CentraLite Scene is turned on, all of the devices that are pre-programmed for that scene will go to their preset light levels.

When a CentraLite Scene is turned off, all of the devices that are pre-programmed for that scene will turn off.

Buttons

A powerful feature of the OmniLT is the ability to program Buttons. A Button (also known as macro) is a number on the keypad that is programmed to run a series of commands when it is pressed. Buttons are used to program functions that are specific to your home and lifestyle.

Using a button, you can activate several commands at once. You can personalize 16 buttons with descriptive names. Following are some examples of programmed Buttons:

Leave for Work (Button 1):

- turn off all lights

- set thermostat to energy saving settings

- arm the security system in the Away mode

Go to Bed (Button 2):

- turn off all lights

- dim outdoor lights 20% to extend bulb life and reduce consumption

- arm security in Night mode

26

Dinner for Two (Button 3):

- dim the dining and living room lights

- turn on the porch light

- turn off all the bedroom lights

- dim the den light

- turn on the stereo

To activate a preprogrammed button, from the top-level display or from the main menu, press the 3 (BTTN) key on the console keypad. Select the button (macro) to be activated by using the arrow keys to scroll through a list of buttons, followed by ' # '.

For extra convenience, event buttons are automatically activated when you change security modes, or when security zones open and close. This powerful feature allows you to set your system up so that control functions are performed when you arm your security system (such as turning off all lights and setting back the HVAC system). Door contacts and motion detectors can be used to turn on lighting automatically, then turn it off a few minutes after the person has left, and then only if it's dark.

Temperature Control

Your OmniLT can control temperatures of your heating and cooling system, monitor the outside temperature, and detect high and low temperatures in special situations. Other appliances can be controlled by temperature as well - such as a bathroom heater or a ceiling fan.

The temperature menu is used to control HAI Communicating Thermostats, Programmable Energy Saver Modules, and

Temperature Sensors. The status of each of these may also be displayed on the console.

HAI Communicating Thermostats and the Programmable Energy Saver Module (PESM) provides energy savings, comfort, and convenience by setting the HVAC system(s) to the proper temperature based on whether you are home, asleep, away, or vacation.

The temperature can be reported as well as controlled over any telephone. A freeze alarm feature will cause a dial out if the temperature falls below a preset level.

The HAI Communicating Thermostats are digital heating and cooling thermostats that can be controlled be the user and by remote control. There are models for conventional single stage (gas or electric), heat pumps, and multi stage heating and cooling systems. All models offer programmability, stand-alone operation, and robust communication to the OmniLT system.

HAI RC-Series Thermostats

The following control actions are allowed for HAI Communicating Thermostats:

Set heating setpoints

Set cooling setpoints

Set system mode (Off / Heat / Cool / Auto)

Programmable Energy Saver Modules (PESMs)

The PESM is used when you are have any thermostat, other than a HAI Communicating Thermostat, and would like to control your heating and cooling system with the OmniLT system. The PESM is a temperature sensor and control relay in a small enclosure that mounts near your central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system thermostat. The PESM allows the OmniLT to read the temperature of the area that the HVAC system controls. When you are away or asleep, the PESM can be set to allow the temperature to drift higher or lower to reduce the operating time, hence saving energy dollars.

The PESM provides an energy saver function. When the energy saver is on, the HVAC system is set back, meaning that the temperature is allowed to rise or fall to an energy saving level. When the energy saver is off, your thermostat operates normally.

Your thermostat should be set to the desired comfort temperature. Only when the energy saver is on will the temperature be allowed to deviate from your normal thermostat setting.

There are three temperatures associated with each PESM:

Temperature - this is the air temperature read by the PESM.

Heat temperature - the air temperature will be allowed to fall to this temperature when the energy saver is on.

Cool temperature - the air temperature will be allowed to rise to this temperature when the energy saver is on.

The following control actions are allowed on PESMs:

Turn Energy Saver On and Off

Turn Energy Saver On and Off for a specified time

Set heating setpoint

Set cooling setpoint

You can turn the energy saver on, off, use a timed on/off, and change the Heat and Cool temperatures from the console or by telephone. Commands can also be programmed so that they occur by time schedule or by event, such as security mode change.

For example, the system can be set up to turn the energy saver(s) On and make the Heat setback temperature 65 degrees and the

Cool setback temperature 80 degrees when the alarm system is put in the Away mode. Another program can turn the energy saver(s) off (to resume normal operation of the HVAC system) at 4:30 P.M. on weekdays to make the house comfortable before arriving home. Different setback temperatures could be set for the Night mode.

29

To set up your thermostat for use with the energy saver, set it in the appropriate mode and set the temperature to your preference.

NOTE: Your heating and cooling system will always be off if you set your thermostat to Off mode. The PESM cannot turn it back on. The PESM cannot make your system cool below the thermostat's cool setting, or heat above the thermostat's heat setting.

Control actions for temperature sensors:

Set low setpoint

Set high setpoint

To enter the temperature menu, from the top-level display or from the main menu, press the 5 (TEMP) key on the console keypad.

You will be prompted with the first named temperature zone (i.e. Upstairs). The temperature zone can be specified by entering the temperature zone number followed by the ' # ' key, or by pressing the arrow keys to scroll through the list of temperature zones. Press the ' # ' key when the desired temperature zone is shown.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

¾ There is a 3-minute minimum on and off time for PESMs designed to prevent short cycling your HVAC compressor. If the PESM has just turned the HVAC system on or off, it will wait 3 minutes before changing it, even though the display does change.

¾ If you change the Heat or Cool setback temperature on the PESM, the system will insure that there is always at least four degrees Fahrenheit difference between the Heat and Cool temperatures by altering the other setback temperature as necessary.

¾ PESMs are NOT affected by All On or All Off commands.

Freeze Alarms

Thermostats and PESMs can also be used to report potential freeze conditions before damage to pipes and appliances can occur.

An alarm will be generated if a temperature below 40 degrees is detected by any Thermostat or PESM in the system. The alarm will not clear until the temperature exceeds 45 degrees.

When the alarm is initiated, the console beeper will be turned on and an alarm dial-out sequence will be initiated after the normal dial-out delay. Both voice and digital communicator dial-outs may be used. The voice dial-out will follow the Dial Order as specified in Set Up Dial. The digital communicator will report the Freeze Alarm Code to the Central Station.

The sounder is not activated for freeze alarms (this feature must be activated by your installer).

Indoor and Outdoor Temperature

The Model 31A00-1 Temperature Sensor is used for sensing temperatures from 0º F - 120º F and 31A00-7 Extended Range

Temperature Sensor is used for sensing temperatures from -40º F - 120º F. It features a new, high accuracy temperature sensor that doesn’t need calibration.

The temperature can be used to activate programs for controlling temperatures indoors and in attics, garages, greenhouses, basements, wine cellars, coolers, and freezers. The temperature can be displayed on the console or spoken over the telephone. It can also report, log, alert, or generate an alarm if the temperature reaches freeze conditions or if the temperature goes above the high setpoint or drops below the low setpoint programmed in the system.

Outdoor temperature zones have a High and Low temperature associated with them that can be used for control purposes. An example of this is to program the system to turn on the bathroom heat if the outdoor temp goes below 45 degrees. High and Low temperatures are changed the same way as a PESM.

When a temperature sensor is selected from the list of temperature devices, you may set a “Low” and “High” setpoint for activating programs or alarms. Enter the desired temperature then press the ' # ' key.

Upstairs

2=LOW 3=HIGH #=STAT

For negative temperatures (-1 o

to -40 o

), press the ' # ' key prior to entering the temperature to make the number negative. A

Celsius temperature may also be specified in 0.5 degree steps if three numeric digits are entered. The third digit adds a .5 to the first two digits if it is any- thing other than zero. Enter a leading zero if necessary.

31

Temperature Control of Appliances

You can control appliances connected to X-10 and ALC modules (such as a ceiling fan) using the Button feature of the OmniLT.

For example, the ceiling fan can be programmed to come on if the temperature goes above the High temperature (a programming example to set this up is shown in the Programming section).

High and Low setpoints for temperature zones are changed the same way as the PESM. However, on/off control of the ceiling fan is done from the 1 (CONTROL) menu. Use the ceiling fan's unit number to turn it On or Off. The PESM and the ceiling fan are linked together by a button program.

Temperature Alarms

Temperature sensors can be used to signal that a temperature (in a special room, like a greenhouse or wine cooler) has gotten too high or too low. If the temperature in this zone goes above the High setpoint or below the Low setpoint, the console beeper is activated (inside and outside sirens are not activated) and the central station and/or voice dialer is called.

The High and Low setpoints are changed as described for the PESM. Use the zone number that the temperature sensor is connected to in place of the unit number.

NOTE: Setting a High or Low temperature to 0 takes it out of service.

Humidity

The Model 31A00-2 Indoor/Outdoor Temperature and Humidity Sensor is used for sensing indoors temperature and/or reporting the relative humidity from 0 to 100 percent or for sensing the outdoor temperature and/or reporting the outdoor relative humidity.

High and low humidity limits can be set for taking action (i.e. turning on the bathroom vent fan, running a/c in de-humidification mode, turning on humidifier in heating mode, etc.) or reporting high or low humidity conditions in homes, greenhouses, wine cellars, coolers, humidors, etc. Controlling humidity is particularly helpful in combating the growth of mold in vulnerable areas of the home, such as bathrooms, basements, attics, etc.

The humidity level (0-100%), the low humidity setting, and high humidity setting can be viewed and modified using the temperature menu. To enter the temperature menu, from the top-level display or from the main menu, press the 5 (TEMP) key.

The humidity zone can be specified by entering the zone number followed by the ' # ' key, or by pressing the arrow keys to scroll through the list of temperature and humidity zones. Press the ' # ' key when the desired temperature zone is shown.

The built-in serial port (J5) on the controller is assigned to Serial Port 1. Serial port 2 is a Serial Interface Module connected to the Expansion port on the controller.

Next, select the message to be sent. You may enter the message number followed by the ' # ' key to send that message, or simply press the down arrow key to scroll through a list of messages. Press the ' # ' key to send the selected message:

MSGNAME

ENTER MESSAGE:

The message is sent out through the specified Pro-Link port exactly as the message was entered in Setup | Names | Message.

Carriage returns and line feed characters are not automatically appended to the end. To send ASCII control as part of the message, use the caret "^" character in the message. This character specifics that the next character is to be interpreted as an

ASCII control character, such as "^M" to represent a carriage return.

Other useful sequences would be "^J" for a line feed character and "^G" for a bell character. To include an actual "^" character in the message, enter it twice as in "^^".

Each message can be up to 15 characters long. To send a longer message, simply program two messages to be sent one after the other.

38

Pro-Link also has the capability to monitor the serial port for incoming text messages. When a text message is received, Pro-Link searches through all 16 messages for a matching message. If one is found, the Program Command (macro) corresponding to the matching message is activated.

When receiving an ASCII message that is over 15 characters, OmniLT only processes the last 15 characters of the message.

Pro-Link determines that a message has been received when:

• One or more characters have been received followed by 100 ms of silence

• One or more characters followed by a carriage return character are received

• One or more characters followed by a line feed character are received

It is not necessary to enter the terminating carriage return or line feed character as part of the message name.
