Media Zone Events

Use an event that occurs in a media zone to trigger an action in the house. Media zone events occur when the media zone is turned on or off, a sleep timer has elapsed, or a display is turned on or off.

Media Zone Events are displayed on the Actions & Events page for rooms that contain media devices or when Enable Media Zone is selected in room's Source Routes page.

To configure media zone events, go to Step 5: Customize & Schedule > Customize Actions & Events > Select a room > Media Zone Events.

These media zone events are available:

  • Media Zone On and Media Zone Off: An action occurs when the media zone is turned on or off. Use media zone on and off events to recall a scene, quick action, button emulation, external function, or sequence functions.
  • Media Zone Sleep: An action occurs when a sleep timer has elapsed in the media zone. Use the media zone sleep event to recall a scene, quick action, button emulation, external function, or sequence functions.

    NOTE: Sleep timers turn off the media zone.

  • Display On and Display Off: An action occurs when the display is turned on or off. Use display on and off events to recall a scene, quick action, button emulation, external function, or sequence functions.
