When you’re occupied with something, you know every little detail (or you’re supposed to be). But over time, it can become a real nightmare to remember what does what. And for other members of the family, this is a complete different story.
I’ve got fe in each room approx 2 switches with the possibility of 4 functions. And based on rules, they can act of course differently (pushed + lightA on = light off, pushed + light off= lightA on + lightB on). So when you’ve got about 20 switches, you can easily have more then 100 functions.
My question now, do you guys have a system to document the basic functions of your home?
Not the technical details. But in high-level.
a kind of scheme with each function described
Button 1: push1: lightA, push2: housemode, push3: panic
Button 2: push1: lightB, push2, gate, push3: panic
Post-it paper on the switches, or …?
push1: lightA, push2: housemode, push3: panic
push1: lightB, push2, gate, push3: panic
Simply to explain to the family members (and yourself) the day-to-day operations…
