jakelle21 Posted November 28, 2010 Share Posted November 28, 2010 I have found several threads that partially answer the question and was wondering if someone could expand on to make the programming of all the LED's in my project change color when the status of my alarm system changes, without having to go to each dimmer. Currently I have gone and individually assigned LED colors depending on the status of the alarm system. For example when the alarm has been armed to home, all the LED's are set to fucia and when the alarm is armed to away, the LED's go to red. For 9 dimmers, each requiring 4 lines of programming, times 3 different setting (alarm armed to away, home and disarmed), the lines of programming grow quickly to almost a 100 lines. When the alarm system has been disarmed I have programmed each dimmer to go back to the default setting of blue on top and black on bottom when on and the reverse when off. As the Christmas season approaches I would like to be able to set the default setting to say "green" (or whatever feastive color I choose) on top for on, black on bottom for off etc. It was a considerable bit of work to set it up the way I have it and don't like the idea of having to go and reprogram each dimmer in my project for the holidays, then have to set it back to the default setting come the new year!I'm not well versed in the use of variables but think that will likely be the answer, given what I read in other threads. Any help is much appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
