So after weeks of playing,printing, and busting buttons I think what I ended up is with some acceptable buttons, here are the layout of my first KeyPad Linc
These were done using a InkJet, I still need to try using a Color Laser to see. Since I got this one off of ebay it was only the 6 key’s which I got the conversion kit off of SmartHome for $5 to 8 bottons.
The Etched buttons do look better but a bit costly. Here is the breakdown
Here is the low down,
1st – Controls the load on the switch which is in my hallway
2nd – The Kitchen Main light
3rd – The Lights inside the Garage
4th – A group which controls all outside lights, (Garage, flood lights, back lights, entrance etc.)
5th- Not linked to any device but when pressed the PC will turn off all the lights in 2 min’s and set the house state to off, which includes bumping up the thermostat to 80 Degrees.
6th- Linked to my I/O Link to open/monitor the garage.
7th -My Children s room both have a main light and a night light switch, this button is linked to both of them, only thing is the Main Switch has a on – level of 0 which causes only the night light to turn on. The best way for this is to link them manually then go back the the program for Smarthomenet’s and change the turn on code to 0.
8th -Linked to my T1700 Thermostat. Its linked by setting your thermostat to the desiered state then link like any other switch. Very simple and clean. I also link this button back to my PLC so I know its been pressed.
