With the installation of home automation systems on the rise, programming functions can become complicated. Australia-based Dynalite has created the DLWizard software to help. The interface is based on application, rather than device, reducing the need for any prior product or programming knowledge.

After naming rooms and defining circuits or channels within each area, the Wizard uses the data to automatically determine the equipment required, and assembles the necessary data to commission all network devices. Users can pre-configure lighting scenes, schedule routine time-clock-controlled events, and build sequential logic functions, such as 'home' and 'away.'

As well as reducing the time required to commission a control system, the Wizard can be used to generate comprehensive documents outlining all configuration details, and also enables data to be imported to a range of CAD packages. For more information, visit www.dynalite.com.au.
