Description

Use the Preset command to operate on presets within the current zone. Presets can be activated, deactivated, toggled and/or set to a desired intensity level.

Normally, Presets only operate within their Zone. See the Zone command to see how to manage Zones. In certain applications, it is useful to be able to join multiple zones together (such as in a Ballroom with removable “air walls”). See the Join command to learn how to join Zones together.


Activating Presets

To activate a preset, use the Preset n On command. For example, to activate Preset 3, use this command:

Preset 3 On

The stored look in Preset 3 will appear in the current zone.

Any time a preset is activated in a particular zone, any other preset in that zone is automatically deactivated. The only exception to this rule is when more than one preset contains the same channel values. If more than one preset share the same channel values, they will all become activated.


Deactivating a Preset

If a preset needs to be deactivated without activating another, the Off action can be used:

Preset 3 Off

If a zone contains one or more presets that are recorded with all zero channel levels, those presets will become active when other presets are deactivated.


Setting a Preset’s Intensity Level

If a Preset needs to be recalled, but at a lower intensity level than recorded, the Preset n At value command can be used:

Preset 3 At 33

In this example Preset 3 is activated, but the channel levels are scaled down to 33% of the original levels recorded in the Preset.

The value used to scale the preset can be given in percentage, decimal, or hexadecimal, similarly to the At command.


Toggling Presets

To cause a preset to toggle on and off, use the Preset n Toggle value command. For example:

Preset 3 Toggle On

Each time the Toggle action is used, the preset will turn on or off. The new state will be the opposite of the previous state.

The Toggle action can also be used with values other than “On”. For example, to toggle a preset between “Off” and “75%”, use this command:

Preset 3 Toggle 75

Examples

Preset 5 On
Activates Preset 5 in the current zone.

Zone "Foyer" Preset 3 On
Activates Preset 3 in the Zone “Foyer”.

Preset 1 Toggle On
Activates or deactivates Preset 1 depending on Preset 1’s previous state.

Preset 7 Off
Deactivates Preset 7 in the current zone.
