Question

How do I add a module to ActiveHome Pro?

Answer

There are two ways to add modules to ActiveHome Pro: using the Add Module dialog, and using the Module Panes.

Add Module Dialog

To open the Add Module window, select “Add Module” from the Edit Menu or choose “New Module” from the Pop-Up Menu. Enter the name you want to use for this module. It’s helpful to describe a module’s location or how you normally use it. Choose the category of module to add (Lamp, Appliance, etc.) and then use the drop down menu to select the exact model number of the module you’re using. Select the room you want the module to represented in using the drop down menu.

The House and Unit Code settings will be selected for you automatically, but if you need to change them, use the drop down menus to do so. Click OK to create the module.



Using Module Panes

If you open one of the Module Panes from the Tree Pane (on the left side of the screen), you can drag new modules of the desired type directly into your room. When you drop the module, all the important information is filled in automatically.

If you want to change the name of the module or its address, click into the module and enter the new information.
