Below is a list of trigger definitions, macro definitions, and trigger and macros examples.


Trigger Definitions

  • Description:  Text field to describe what the Trigger does.
  • Events:  The event that will trigger the Macro.
  • Address:  The specific address for where the Event occurred.  Based on the Event, you can select (ALL) for addresses in the controller or a specific address.
  • Trigger Code:  A Trigger Code is assigned to a personnel record in the Advanced Access tab of the Personnel Manager module and can be any value between 0 - 999.  This is only used for card related Events and is used to identify a specific personnel record or a group of personnel records to Trigger.
  • Time Schedule:  This defines when the Trigger will be valid.
  • Macro:  The Macro contains a sequence of actions that will only get executed if all of the conditions for the Trigger have been met.
  • TVAR:  Trigger Variables are extra conditions that must be met in order for the Trigger to execute the assigned Macro.  Since TVAR values can be set and cleared within Macros, triggers that have the identical conditions can behave differently based on what previous Macros have been executed.

Example: The same valid card read can create a flip flop state to arm/disarm monitor points and/or activate/deactivate relays.


Macro Definitions

  • Command:  The command that will get executed when the Trigger's conditions have been met.  A virtually unlimited number of commands can be assigned to a single Macro and will execute in sequence when the Macro is executed.
  • Address:  The specific address or group of addresses that will perform the Command when the Macro is executed.

 

Example:  Valid Card Trigger causes Flip Flop
