    Assuming you are using a Clipsal touchscreen, PAC, or Homegate/Schedule Plus for your schedules.. these all support enabling/disabling of schedules using a normal C-Bus group address. Just create a group called "Holiday Mode" or something like that, set this as the enable group for the schedule, and assign it to an on/off key on your DLT... easy!

    As you have it at the moment, you could create another group called something like "Outside Override" and use the logic function in the relay unit. you would assign the "Outside Override" group to one of the groups on the Logic tab in the relay's UI in Toolkit.. then tick the boxes on the channels you want to be able to control from inside, and select "Or" logic. Then set your inside switch to control the "Outside Override" group. This means the channels you selected will come on when either the "outside" group OR the "Outside Override" group is on.

    If it's the Clipsal 8 button remote it should work with the Neo.. DLT doesn't have infrared though. The 8 buttons on the remote correspond to the 8 buttons on the Neo... There is a check box on the Neo UI in toolkit to enable this.

    HTH,
