    Hi,

    I was wondering if someone could explain to me how the pulse command works?

    I would like to use the pulse command to gracefully switch lighting off in areas that are controlled by sensors, the sensors are enabled after hours.

    In the past we have simply set a scene that enables the sensors and sets the lighting off, if someone is in the space then the sensor will turn the lighting back on.

    I’m looking for a more graceful way to handle the after hours change over, such as pulse the groups and enable the sensors, if no motion is detected then the pulse times the Lights off, if motion is detected the lights remain on and the sensor takes over.

    I’m i right I thinking that if I were to pulse a group, and the sensor sees motion it will take over control of the group and cancel the pulse?

    Yes. Any change to the group address from any unit will cancel the pulse.

    The other alternative is to just set the scene to enable the sensors and dim the lights over a few minutes. If the sensor detects movement it will automatically cancel the dim and turn the light on again.

    Thanks Ashley, i like the idea of dimming the lights off and enabling sensors. I’ll have a play on the test bench when I have a moment and see how it goes.
