lightning device in floorplan
« on: February 22, 2009, 05:45:23 pm »
Hi everybody,

I want to activate (on/off) my blinds via floorplan items. The control is done via RS232 (GSD device). The blinds work already by scenario. Now I would like to add an item on floorplan which can switch the blinds (on / off) and send the GSD-command. Whatever I do so far I cannot get devices in lightning category of Floorplan-Editor.

Can anybody tell me about the right way to get an on/off device in Floorplan-Editor which sends a command to a GSD device?

did you make the GSD device yourself?
If so, make sure that in the device template that you specify "Environment - Lighting Device #73" for Device Category. After that, it should at least appear in the Wizard->Lights section of the web admin where you can set the PK_FloorplanObjectType to blinds, which will give you a controllable Blinds icon on the floorplan.
