NOTE: If you are using BaseManager with a BaseStation 3200 V16 controller, see the updated help.

  1. Make sure that the controller on which you want to add a program is displayed in the BaseManager footer. To select a different controller, click the Menu icon in the upper-left corner of the BaseManager page, and then click Sites and Controllers. Continue drilling down until you can select the desired controller.
  2. Click the Programs tab.
  3. Click Add Program.
  4. The Program field displays the next available program number. If you want to assign this number to your new program, skip to the next step. If you want to assign a different number, click the arrow in the field, and then select a number from the list.
  5. In the Description field, type a description that identifies this program.

Note: Limit the number of characters in the description to 32 characters (BaseStation 1000) or 42 characters (BaseStation 3200). If you enter a longer description, the controller will automatically shorten it, and then pass the new version back to BaseManager.

  1. Click in the check box in the Enabled field. A check mark in the field means that the program will run when the start conditions are met. If the field is blank, the program will not run.
  2. Refer to the following topics to complete the program settings:

IMPORTANT! When you have finished making changes to the program settings, click the Save button in the footer of the BaseManager page.
