Picture 1: Scene settings

Scene Name defines the name of the scene displayed on the UI control. It can be changed in the user interface by setting the Allow Rename setting.

Delay setting can be used to execute the scene with a delay between each device. It can be used as a filter for scenes which are turning ON a lot of inductive loads.

Settings List contains the devices controlled by the scene. Each device has the enabled check box for temporary excluding the device in the scene.

Scene can be executed from other tasks by calling the Run function. Learn function can also be called to learn the scene (i.e. store the states of devices on the list)
