This kind of control is thought so that we can send several predefined values to different group addresses. For instance, in an adjustable light, we can have predefined 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% in the same control. This becomes extensible to adjustable blinds, fans speed or even custom controls.
With Generic Buttons, you can enable and disable any kind of actuator or device. Even a door, the Air Conditioner or an automatic irrigation, for example.
Beside the HouseinHand KNX environments, you will be able to control the famous KNX scenes pre-programmed by the Home Automation integrator.
There are several icons prepared for typical actions such as general turn off, lowering blinds or activating a presence simulator. You just have to choose the right one for the action you have already programmed as a scene in your KNX system, and use the corresponding group address to activate the scene.
