1. A menuing
system with the LCD display and keypad.
2. Communications through RS-232
3. Communications through X10 or A10 control
4. Event Programming and Scheduling (up to 16 events or schedules)
5. Event Logging
It is an
environment that allows very simple "If
_____ Then ______" style programming (with AND, OR, and
timers also provided) using only the built-in selector knob and your imagination.
are the heart of Simple-Rulez. An event is simply a condition that the
GSI-2 will watch for, and when met, perform actions you specify (such
as logging the event and/or activating a GSI-2 output).
Not a programmer?
If you can choose the dropdown options below, you can program events with
<parameters vary with input type>
<values vary with output type>
It! The GSI-2 will immediately start watching for your event.
events are stored in the GSI-2 "Personality
Module" (non-volatile EEPROM),
so events will remain in the GSI-2, even after extensive periods without
power! For multiple GSI-2 installations, this also allows you to configure
a master Personality Module, then make copies and install in the field,
instead of programming each unit directly.
how easy it is to use Simple-Rulez in the examples below:
I want to turn on a relay (controlling my irrigation system)
whenever the Temperature goes below freezing (this assumes
the Temp units are set to F).
1) IF TEMP 0to32 THEN RELAY 1 ON
I want my pool light (on X10 address A7) to turn ON at dusk,
and turn OFF at 9:00 PM.
1) IF LGHT 0to50 THEN X10 A7 ON
IF TIME 21:00 to 23:59 THEN X10 A7 OFF
standard Simple-Rulez does not meet your needs (for example, if you require
special calculations), the program may be customized by Gunn Systems or
by any qualified software engineer using the development system and free
source code. See the Development
section for more information.
