Light Scenes

Use the Light Scenes screen to create lighting scenes for one or more rooms or for the entire house.

Lighting scenes are used to set predefined light levels for multiple lighting loads. By default, the Crestron Home system creates All On and All Off scenes for all rooms with a lighting load. Additionally, an All On and All Off scene is created for the Whole House room when a lighting load is added to the system.

NOTE: Tap the play button to recall the lighting scene in real time.

To view the Light Scenes screen, select Create Scenes > Configure Light Scenes on the Setup screen or on the setup menu.

Default Scenes

Default lighting scenes:

  • All On: Created when any light is added to the room. The scene is also created for the Whole House room when a lighting load is added to the system.
  • All Off: Created when any light is added to the room. The scene is also created for the Whole House room when a lighting load is added to the system.
  • Circadian: Created when any light is added to the room. This scene cannot be edited or deleted.
  • SolarSync: Created when a tunable light and GLS-LCCT are added to the system. This scene cannot be edited or deleted.

Add or Remove a Lighting Load from a Scene

A scene can contain all devices that are located in a room or only a few devices. A scene can also contain a lighting load that is located in different rooms in the house.

To add or remove a lighting load from the scene:

NOTES:

  • The DALI protocol allows ballasts to be added to multiple DALI groups.
  • Do not add multiple DALI groups to a scene if the DALI groups control a common ballast. This will cause unpredictable lighting control when a scene is recalled and unreliable feedback of the light levels in the user interface.
  1. Tap the wrench button next to the lighting scene name. The scene configuration screen opens.
  2. Tap Add/Remove Loads. The Add/Remove Loads dialog is displayed.
  3. Select a room from Select Room Below and then tap the check box next to the lighting loads that should be controlled in the lighting scene.

  4. Select Save.

    NOTE: Adjust the lighting scene as necessary. Refer to the "Configure a Lighting Scene" section above.
