ISY 26 Program Details screen showing a simple on/off schedule

Description

The program details screen is used to create and edit your programs. The image above shows program 'A Simple Schedule' that turns a light on at 1:30PM everyday, and turns it off 10 minutes later.


A - Program Tree

This area shows the tree containing all of your programs and folders. When a new program is created, it is added to this tree. You may organize your programs in folders using drag and drop, and as you will see in the advanced section, you can use folders to limit when the programs within it run. The arrow in the program icon changes to green when it has been modifed, and not yet saved. You can make many modifications to many programs before saving, but they will not take effect until they are saved.

  • The 'My Old Schedules' folder contains your old schedules that have been migrated from the old format to this new format.
  • The 'My Old Triggers' folder contains your old triggers that have been migrated from the old format to this new format.

You may rename, move, change or delete your old schedules and triggers anytime you wish.
