Question

How do I use a security module to trigger a macro?

Answer

If you’ve registered your version of OnAlert and have added and installed at least one of the new security modules, the Macro Designer will provide some new functionality.

In the Trigger section, a new button appears labeled ‘Use Security’. This will allow you to use a security module for the macros trigger rather than the standard X10 Address. Note: this button only appears if you have installed one of the new security modules mentioned above. Pressing this button changes the trigger display to the following:

You now have two drop down controls you can use to specify the trigger event. The one on the left is a list of your installed security modules. Click on it to pick which module you wish to use as a trigger. The second drop down control lists the possible events the selected trigger module can send. Click on this to determine which command will trigger the macro. To switch back to a standard X10 Address for the trigger, press the ‘Use Address’ button.
