UPB link 242/241 vs report light level
Posted 14 November 2012 - 07:57 PM
Is there any difference in these settings? The reason I ask is I am debating the best way to control two switches from one switch. It looks like I could either program the OmniPro to turn on the other switch when this switch on or have the switch activate one of the links defined in the HLC room.

Now there is good news and bad news about switches that use link 241. With SA they have some that do and some that don't.
A switch can only transmit a single link with the top click and a single click with the bottom click. If you are using link 241, that means you can't use another as well. Also, I don't think link 241 goes between switches. SO if you want to control one light with two switches, change it to a different link both lights "receive."

I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a loopback - that would imply that it's internal to just that switch; it's more a default configuration. If you have 3 switches that use 241 to activate themselves, what you'll find is that if you use any of those 3 switches, they'll activate all 3 loads. I ran into that when I was first figuring out UPB.
Hmmm.. Is this with an HAI switch? The Simply Automated US2-40 doesn't operate like that. Simply Automated calls Link 241 an "internal link." If you only had these switches, then every switch in your house would turn on every other switch in your house. That wouldn't be very useful. Did you add a Link 241, which might have overridden the internal Link 241? As I remember these switches come factor programmed to receive their own Link 241, but I never remember seeing them receive a Link 241 from other switches. May HAI switches were different.

That was the first house... For the second I added 60+ loads rather quickly but had the process down by then.
