How do I create a schedule to turn relays on/off on my SwitchPAK?

For this example, we will create three scheduled events - one to turn on the relays 1-8 at dawn, one to turn relays 1-6 off at dusk, and one to turn relays 7 and 8 off at 10:00PM.

Let's start with the Dawn event that turns on all the relays, utilizing the system's astronomical clock.

1.) Press the menu button on your SwitchPAK keypad.

2.) The first option at the top is Schedule events. Click the OK button.

3.) Click the Add button.

4.) Press the up arrow on the keypad twice, until the word DAWN +000 appears.

5.) If you wish to off-set the start time, use the arrow keys to change the +000 to a number of minutes before or after dawn, as you desire.

6.) The LEDs for your days and relays should be flashing, indicating that they are currently unaffected by this schedule. Press each day that you want the schedule to affect, so that the LED goes from flashing to solid on. Then press each relay button so that they are solid on as well. 

7.) Hit the save button.

Congratulations! You now have a scheduled event to turn your lights on at dawn!

 

To add an event to turn relays 1-6 off at dusk...

1.) Click the Add button.

2.) Press the up arrow on the keypad once, until the word DUSK +000 appears.

3.) If you wish to off-set the start time, use the arrow keys to change the +000 to a number of minutes before or after dusk, as you desire.

4.) The LEDs for your days and relays should be flashing, indicating that they are currently unaffected by this schedule. Press each day that you want the schedule to affect, so that the LED goes from flashing to solid on. Then press each relay button numbered 1 through 6 *TWICE* so that they are solid *OFF*. 

5.) Hit the save button.

 

Use the same process as above to create your third event, with the following changes:

2.) Use the right arrow on the keypad to navigate to the time, and the up and down arrows to adjust to your desired time.

Press each day that you want the schedule to affect, so that the LED goes from flashing to solid on. Then press relay buttons numbered 7 and 8 *TWICE* so that they are solid *OFF*. 

Once completed with all of your schedule changes, press the menu button twice to return to your main display screen, and you are all set!
