Notification and announcement

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if a custom button can be created to turn on/off notifications and announcements. I have all of my doors and windows set to play wav file over speakers when they open, like an alarm chime.  Trying to figure out if I could create a custom button on t3 to turn on/off either all announcements or just an isolated few. Would like to do this to with notifications as I don't really need them all the time. Any suggestions

Use a custom button or experience button to turn a variable on or off. Then have your notification send only when the variable is true.

Yes, it can be done. You need to create a variable. If variable is true send notification. The custom button will toggle the variable true or false.

I would use an experience button. They have a variable state built in

Experience buttons are a new User Interface (UI) element in Control4.  They allow an installer to add a driver, which is represented by a graphic button on the Control4 UI, in any sub-page except for lighting or blinds.

The Experience buttons can be programmed against, and can have different functionality (like timers, etc.).

As an example, I use an experience button to turn on / off push messages being sent in my project.  It shows up as a green or red button on all my touchpanels and on my Phone's Control4 application.

Could use use one to change playlists on the wakeup function?

I guess. Sure. You would use it to change a variable which you could use custom programming on a wakeup to change.

Thanks for the advice on the experience button. Way better than the drop down custom button
