Panic button from software version 1.13.1 onwards


This step-by-step plan shows you how you can programme a panic button that turns on all of the lights in the hallway, dining room, living room, front door and the terrace with one press.

Starting point

The starting point for this step-by-step plan is a project which already encompasses Project information, for which a plan was already drawn up or uploaded and where several inputs, outputs and actions have already been added.

Run through the steps in Adding new project and then Drawing a plan or Upload a background image if there is no existing project.

Step 1: Add a single push button with indicator LED

  • Go to Creation in the menu bar at the top.

  • Click on add an input.
  • Click on single push button with LED in the list of options in the right-hand window.
    The input appears on the plan.
  • Drag the push button to the correct position.
    For example, in the parental bedroom.
  • Give the push button a recognisable name.
  • Choose an existing location from the list of options or click on add a location if you have not previously defined one.

  • Click on save to return to the Creation start screen.

Step 2: Create a 'Panic' action

  • In the right-hand window, click on add an action.
    The action will appear as a text balloon on the plan.
  • Drag the action to a logical and appropriate place, e.g. to the relevant input.
  • Give the action the name 'Panic'.
  • Choose the location of the panic button from the list.

  • Click on continue to go to the Players tab.

Step 3: Select the inputs and outputs

  • In the right-hand window, click on Choose players.
    The pop-up screen Players for Panic will appear.

The inputs and outputs are sorted according to location. In the left-hand column, there are inputs; in the right-hand column, there are outputs. An input or output is selected by clicking on the plus sign in front of the name.
Outputs can also be selected in a group. At the top of the pop-up screen, you can also select All lamps or All outputs with one click, or select all outputs for one location with one click in the right-hand column - you are then able to choose between All lamps or All outputs.
  • Select the Panic button in the Parental bedroom as input.
  • Select the output All lamps in the Hallway, the Living room, the Dining room, the Terrace and the Front door.
    • For each of the locations mentioned, click on the plus sign in front of Outputs.
    • You can now choose between All lamps and All outputs.
    • Click on All lamps.

  • Have you added all outputs? Click on close.
    You can now see all linked outputs on the plan and in the right-hand window.

  • Click on continue to go to the Basic behaviour tab.

Step 4: Enter the start and stop behaviour

In the Basic behaviour tab, you can review the start and stop behaviour and amend if necessary.

The default setting for start behaviour is 'all on' and for stop behaviour is 'all off'. For our example, we do not need to change anything.

At the bottom of the right-hand window, you can set the behaviour for the indicator LED.

  • Click on Behaviour of indication LED.
    The pop-up screen Indication LED appears.
  • Select the behaviour that you require (in our example 'is on as soon as the action is started'.)

  • Click save.
  • Click on continue to go to the Conditions tab.
    In our example, we do not set any conditions.
  • Click on continue to go to the Time automation tab.
    In our example, we do not set any time automation.
  • Click save.


With one press on the panic button in the Parental bedroom, you can switch on all lights in the hallway, living room, dining room, at the front door and on the terrace. The indication LED on the push button will be illuminated. With another press, you can switch everything off again and the indicator LED is no longer illuminated.
