    I need to know if a switch will be able to store and operate the scene which I have planned. The scene is simply an all-off operation for a large number of groups, and the switch which is to store and operate this scene is a Saturn. I simply need to know what the limit is for the switch to be able to store and run the all-off scene. I assume that the limiting factor is the number of group addresses which the switch will be able to store within the scene, - is this correct, and if so, is there a known limit on the number of groups which a Saturn switch is able to store? There won't be any external triggers, just a simple push button operation to turn off all lights, which are on various dimmer and relay channels.

    Check out the "Programming with area addresses" section in Toolkit Help ... another way to skin the cat!

    A Saturn will store up to 40 groups in a single scene.

    There can be up to 8 scenes, and you can allocate the 40 groups amongst the 8 scenes any old way you like (1 scene of 40, 2 of 20, or 2 - one with 37 and one with 3, etc etc etc).

    Or for REALLY BIG control, use Areas. But use areas really really really carefully.
