    Has anyone experienced problems when Enabling/Disabling sensors via a Scene stored in a PAC?

    Eg. I am having reliability issues when scheduling a "scene" that turns on/off the enable/disable group address of a numbers of sensors.

    Note: some of the sensors are located on a DIFFERENT network to the PAC. In this case do you need to address the group address directly or will it still work if messages are allowed to be sent through the bridge?

    Use the C-Bus Diagnostic Software to monitor the messages on C-Bus at the time of the Schedules Scene. It may be that there are communication problems preventing the Scene from being set.

    As long as the bridge is set to send messages to the other network, it should work correctly.

    You could try addressing the network directly and see if it makes a difference.

    If you set a Scene containing groups in different networks, then several messages will be sent out, each addressed to the relevant network. It is most efficient to bunch together the groups on the same network in order in the Scene. This minimises the number of C-Bus messages sent.
