What is a scenario?

A scenario is a list of simple commands, stored in a scenario device like F420 (max. 16 scenarios) or IR 3456 (max. 20 scenarios). More and smarter scenarios can be stored in a scenario device like MH200 or the newer model MH200N. These smart scenario devices support event- and time-driven scenarios, even with IF-THEN-ELSE clauses.


Scenarios are launched in a similar way like lighting commands:

*0*5*89##        launch scenario #5, connected to address 89
*0*9*48#4#02##   launch scenario #9, connected to address 48 on interface 2

Since a scenario is just a list of commands, they don't have a status and therefore you can't do a status request on a scenario.

Programming a Scenario

To program a scenario, it has to be locked first and after programming it has to be unlocked. Instead of fiddling with OWN message to manage F420 scenarios, you should use a tool like ScenarX
