nLight: How do I program a Room Link using the nPOD GFX?

For programming a room link using GFX Wallpods you will first program the two nPOD GFX's to have the "room channels" and "linked channels" on the Wallpods. For example:

nPOD GFX 1

  • Wallpod 1- Channel 1 (Room 1 "Zone 1")
  • Wallpod 2- Channel 2 (Room 1 "Zone 2")
  • Wallpod 5- Channel 5 (Linked Rooms "Zone 1")
  • Wallpod 6- Channel 6 (Linked Rooms "Zone 2")


nPOD GFX 2

  • Wallpod 3- Channel 3 (Room 2 "Zone 1")
  • Wallpod 4- Channel 4 (Room 2 "Zone 2")
  • Wallpod 5- Channel 5 (Linked Rooms "Zone 1")
  • Wallpod 6- Channel 6 (Linked Rooms "Zone 2")

The Linked Rooms channels are programmed to have devices from both rooms track the same switch channel. 


In the default settings, set the Visibility of Wallpod 5 and 6 to Hidden on both nPOD GFX's. This way, only the individual Room wallpods can be seen. 

You will then setup a Profile Scene to "link" the rooms. This can be done using a scene wallpod, or a nIO 1S for partition control.

This Profile Scene will be set to change the wallpod visibility on the nPOD GFX's to hide the individual room wallpods, and reveal the linked wallpods. Using the example above, the profile would have the following settings:

  • Visibility (Graphic Wallpod) (Wallpod 1)- Hidden
  • Visibility (Graphic Wallpod) (Wallpod 2)- Hidden
  • Visibility (Graphic Wallpod) (Wallpod 3)- Hidden
  • Visibility (Graphic Wallpod) (Wallpod 4)- Hidden
  • Visibility (Graphic Wallpod) (Wallpod 5)- Visible
  • Visibility (Graphic Wallpod) (Wallpod 6)- Visible

When the Scene is activated, the two nPOD GFX's will then change to only show the "linked" channels.
