How to add Objects to the C-Bus Automation Controller?

There are three ways to fill the objects list

1. Import
A project created with the Toolkit software can be imported as CGL file (Utilities tab → Import Toolkit CGL file button).

2. Sniffer function
The bus sniffer detects objects from the C-Bus network and automatically adds them to the list.
Objects are visible when C-Bus is connected and the discover function is activated (Utilities General Configuration tabs).

3. Add new objects
New objects can be added manually (Objects tab → Add new object button).
Use any of the three ways to find the objects for visualization and exchange with other systems, however the most typical way is to prepare a Toolkit project and import it:
  • Export the project in the Toolkit software.
  • Import the CGL file into the Automation Controller.
  • Edit the objects to be used.
  • Add new objects manually or via the bus sniffer function.
