    Is it possible to configure a button to control multiple relays where the user has the ability to stop the travel of the blinds? Currently I have programmed an up scene and down scene but this does not give the user the ability to stop. Have experimented with many functions but no success.

    TIA for reading and would appreciate advice on how to configure PICED if it is achievable.

    Firstly you need to make sure the shutter relays are in level translation mode. This is a check box on the global tab of the shutter dialog. Then just send a level of 1% to it and the shutter will stop.

    That's a big topic. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    Yes, level translation is enabled.

    Should have mentioned there are local keypads for individual control of blinds so each shutter relay has its own GA. PICED loaded onto T/S to control all blinds is using a scene. Hope this clarifies the set up.

    Actually 1% is Close/Stop (for 2 button operation).

    For 3 button operation..

    100% will open
    0% will close
    2% will stop

    You can put these all in 3 scenes... an all open scene would set all the GAs to 100%, an all close would set them all to 0% and an all stop would set them all to 2%).

    Depending on the size of the scene, there might be multiple messages required, in which case some blinds might respond slightly quicker.

    Oops. You are correct (as usual :))

    As Nick says, you just need to create another scene on the touch screen that sets all the ga's to 2% to stop the blinds.

    Alternatively you can do all this with a single scene. In PICED under the CBUS function, instead of selecting SCENE as the function, select PRESET, then select SCENE GROUPS, select your scene, and in the level select 0% for close, 100% for open and 2% for stop.

    Thanks Ashley and NickD for your input. I didn't consider adding a button to stop all of the blinds as an additional scene but this is an acceptable solution.

    I also think Ashley's suggestion of having a single scene will simplify the programming as well.

    Cheers
