I bought a ZWave wall switch that looks like this :
Classy eh? EDIT thanks to @Darryl it has 4 independant buttons!
This wall switch responds to 4 actions for each of its buttons :
- single press
- double press
- long press
- release (not covered)
I therefore have 12 functions available (3 press modes and 4 buttons) for this wall switch. ZWave connection is not a problem.
I'd like to provide a way to show my non techie users which button does what when pressed somehow...
(French column names on the left post-it : "still","blinking")
I am already aware that grouping functionalites is necessary for user remembering, for example
- single press : alarm/security
- double press : multimedia,...
Also, I think I should "keep" button configuration for myself and not tell my users, such as double press.
Here are some actions I am thinking for this particular wall switch:
- turn on alarm system
- SOS (sends me a SMS with "help" when pressed)
- turn on the hifi system and play playlist #1
- turn on the hifi system and play playlist #2 (and so on)
- I'm home!
- go to sleep! (turn off hifi system, lights,...)
- turn on multimedia computer server
- storm! turn off everything!
- turn off hifi system
- misc: free test button
- misc: turn on my computer
Is there a good/easy/simple way to label these buttons and their type of press matching with functionalities?
- My users (wife and children) are non techie but they can read and are not colorblind (I am, but its okay since I design the system)
- I can do anything in my house, and this wall switch will just be glued on the wall
- I suppose pictograms will not need further description (for example music notes for "turn on the hifi system" is enough)
Thank you for your help!
