Number Name Description
1 Relinquish Default list Specifies the default value to be used for the Present Value attribute when no commands are currently controlling this object. If this attribute is configured to any value other than None, the object sends commands for the value immediately.
2 Add New Items to All Conditions check box Select the Add New Items to All Conditions check box and click the Add Item icon to create an action item for all states. Clear the check box and click the Add Item icon to create an action item for individual states.
3 All Commands Priority check box Select the All Commands Priority check box if you want to use the same priority for all commands in the Action Tables. For example, if you choose Operator Override, the command priority automatically sets to Operator Override (8) for every item listed in the Action Tables. Clear the check box to enable individual priority selection for the commands in the Action Tables.
4 Commands Priority list Select the command priority that you want from the list. Commands Priority determines the order by importance for all commands sent. Commands with a lower priority number are of higher priority or are more critical than commands with a higher priority number. For example, Manual Life Safety (1) is of higher priority than Scheduling (15).
5 Delete Item icon Select one or more items that you want to delete and click the Delete Item icon to delete items from the Action Tables.
6 Add Item icon Click to add one or more items from the Network tree or User Views tree.

  • Set Priority: Choose the priority at which to send the command.
  • Set Delay: Choose the amount of time, in seconds, that each command waits to be sent, after a change in condition.
  • Remove: Remove the items from the Action Tables.
Note: The items must be of the same type for Actions to work. For example, a Set Command does not work when you select an AV and BV.
