Assigning Event Switches
Posted by Leanne Lloyd-Fairey on 12 November 2014 03:30 PM
  1. Make sure that the controller that you want to assign event switches to 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. Position the cursor on the Devices tab, and then click Event Switches in the menu that displays.
  3. Click Assign Event Switches. BaseManager searches for the event switches that are connected to your controller.
  4. In the Serial Number column of the event switch ID row, click the drop-down arrow, and then click the serial number of the event switch that you want to assign.
  5. Click in the Description column and type a description that makes the event switch easy to identify.

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. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have assigned all event switches.
