SE8600 / SE7000 Room Controller’s occupancy command does not follow the MPM’s schedule.

Issue

We cannot get a SE8000 / SE7000 Room Controller’s occupancy command to follow the MPM’s schedule.   The controller’s display always displays unoccupied even when the schedule is set to occupied.

Cause

When the MPM's scheduler is in "unoccupied" mode (outside business hours), the default value is 0. However that does not match any of the values of the "Occupancy cmd" parameter in the Room Controller

Resolution

The "Default Value" in the MPM's Scheduler object SCH1 must be changed to "3" to match the unoccupied value in the Room Controller.

The Occupancy command point for each Room controller must also be ticked in the points list in the Scheduler object

 

For SE8000 PIR ready models, set the "Occupancy src" (Occupancy Source) parameter to "Motion"

The SE8000 /SE7000 Room Controller will now follow the MPM’s schedule.
