    Hi guys, appreciate any help in advance. I am sure I am missing something - but having set up my CBUS install in Toolkit and then pointed my Wiser2 project at this in PICED, I had some expectation of seeing the various controls available in PICED - or at least some way of associating widgets with the lighting keypads and or output modules.

    Am I missing the point of PICED - or have I gotten my setup wrong somewhere ?

    Best

    John

    Have you connected PICED to you CBus network via OPTIONS/CONNECT TO CBUS?

    The association is the Group addresses you created in Toolkit
    Hence in an O/P unit you have Kitchen Lights, then in an input unit unit you also have kitchen lights.
    In Piced ensure that when you set the project up you associate it with the same Toolkit project.
    Then on the widget manager defined your locations (Location tab) and function groups (Function groups tab)
    Then on the widget tab you should be able to select the location, function group and group address.

    Location is just to controls that are physically in the same area and is completely up to you how its done.
    For example A location may be Living area, Bedrooms, Outside.
    Function groups are to assign similar control type
    Example Lights, Fans, Audio, Security....
    Group address are what really matters and they associate inputs and outputs together, if you are an electrician consider them similar to switch wires (the link between the switch and the load.
