Using a lighting scenario in multiple rooms
« on: May 14, 2009, 11:09:08 pm »
Hi,
I have a lighting scenario that sets the lights in the living to Party. How could I change to that scenario when the orbiter's room is _not_ the living room but some other party-related place such as the kitchen?
Thanks,
Mark

Where do I do this? Mind you, I do not mean to have the scenario control lights in the kitchen, it just needs to appear in the  Wizard | Lighting Scenarios under Kitchen as well as Living.
I think I am missing something -- autogenerated scenarios like On and Off appear in virtually every room. How do I make that happen with my own scenarios?

The autogenerated scenarios are generated by the code in UpdateEntArea, so having SIMILAR scenarios in each room isn't a built-in feature per se.

However, if you want the SAME scenario in multiple rooms you can go to Advanced->Configuration->Scenarios and drill down to on on the left pane, then in the "Scenario Data" pane on the right you can select multiple rooms.
