So we setup F4 on a KP as Output for a relay. I want to be able to setup a rule to trip the Keypad output when F4 is pressed. I do not see a current option to setup F4 as a trigger for any output in the rules via Elkconnect both on dealer portal and on application.
In the current rules editor, the F keys events are not exposed. This due to a change that is being implemented based on recent feedback from the field. In an upcoming firmware release, we will provide the option to use all F keys for rules if you choose to disable the default panic function. For example, if you choose not to have F3 as an Emergency button, it can also serve as a rule-driven button.
This change was requested by several companies, and we have successfully implemented it and it is currently in internal testing. However, it will necessitate a control and keypad firmware update. Once we release the firmware, the rules editor will be updated accordingly. Additionally, there are several additional “events” and “actions” forthcoming for rules based on feedback.
