Overriding the Occupancy Setting

In the SmartX Sensor 3-Button Cover model, you override the living space occupancy setting, for example, so an after-hours occupant can change the control setting to improve their comfort level. You enable occupancy override and also use the current occupancy value to control applications using the Display object Occupancy override property.

action_close

You use the SmartX Sensor Display property tabs in WorkStation to view and configure the UI features of the various sensor models within your control application.

Basic and Advanced Property Tabs

The Display Basic tab properties includes the same General Information you find on all EcoStruxure Building Operation objects. Beyond that, it also provides a Setpoint , a Fan speed , an Occupancy override , an HVAC mode , a Heating cooling status , and 4 Custom value text fields.

The Display Advanced property tab includes considerably more configuration information. For example, you enable the temperature setpoint feature by setting the Display object Allow setpoint changes property to On and configuring the Setpoint high limit and Setpoint low limit properties. If colored wall back lighting feedback is required for the room occupant, you can turn on the Enable wall back lighting property.

Note:

Allow setpoint changes, Setpoint high limit, and Setpoint low limit are the types of properties you may wish to drive dynamically based on time of day. For example, using a schedule, you may only allow setpoint changes during the day and not at night. You may also only change the high and low limits for the setpoint based on whether you are in the heating or cooling season.

You can also enable the occupancy override feature using the Display object Allow occupancy override property. In the Occupied mode, you then turn on a green back light if the Enable wall back lighting property is On .

For more information, see Configuring SmartX Sensor Display Properties .

Property Mapping

While the Display property tabs allow you to configure varied SmartX Sensor models with different UI features, not all of the properties apply to each model. Be sure to consider this when configuring the application and binding it to your control programs. The table that follows shows the properties applicable to each unit.

To override the occupancy setting
  • In the SmartX Sensor 3-Button Cover Model, press the

     
    action_zoom_plus_stroke
    button to override the occupancy setting in the designated living space.

    In the Occupied mode, a button press turns on a green back light if the Enable wall back lighting property is On. However, if the Occupancy overrides property is OFF, the LED does not respond to a button press. For more information, see Backlighting in the SmartX Sensor 3-Button Cover Model .

    Tip:

    When Occupancy override is set to on by the room occupant pushing the button, it remains on until the control application sets the Occupancy override property to off.
