The "Presence Control" offers the possibility to evaluate presence within an area. For this evaluation, sensors are diveded into two groups. Impulse variables trigger a signal on activation which confirms presence for a specific duration. The other group are state variables that evaluate presence by their current state.
The status variable "Presence" displays the current presence. It is set if at least one variable confirms presence within the area. Alternatively, the presence can be set manually. In this case, the set presence is held for a lock time. During this time, updates of impulse and state variables are not evaluated. The status variable "Detection" informs whether the "Presence" variable is currently locked by the lock time after a manual setting or is active, i.e., is evaluated by impulse and state variables.
|Variable||Boolean variable that contains the impulse|
|Validity||Validity in seconds - An impulse on the variable confirms presence for this duration|
|Invert?||By default, the module reacts to variable updates to true. If "Invert?" is set, the module reacts to false instead|
If an impulse variable is updated to true (or false, if "Invert?" is set), the presence is confirmed for the validity duration.
Changes to the validity or removing an impulse variable does not affect current pulses. Current impulses use the settings from the time the impulse was triggered.
|Variable||Boolean variable that contains the state|
|Invert?||By default, presence is confirmed while the variable is true. If "Invert?" is set, the module reacts to false instead|
If a state variable is true (or false, if "Invert?" is set), the presence is confirmed.
The lock time in seconds after a manual adjustment to presence can be defined here. During the lock time Presence stays at its set value. Impulses are ignored during the lock time. After the lock time, Presence is evaluated as usual.
A change to the lock time is only applied at the next manual adjustment. Current lock times use the settings from the time of manual adjustment.
