RoomEvents are a feature of the RoomBox 6 and the Event products. They enable Rako lighting to be controlled in each room. You will need a RAV LC which can be obtained from Rako.

RoomEvents are programmable from the room pads.

Setting up Rako

The Rako lighting must be set up so that the room number in each room is four times the Living Control zone number in that room. For example, if the kitchen is set to zone 3 the Rako lighting in that room must be set to room 12.

For curtain control select the room number times four, plus 1. For example, if the kitchen is set to zone 3 the Rako lighting in that room must be set to room 13.

It is also necessary to know the house number to which the Rako system has been set. By default, it is set to 1 but it is often set by the installer to the actual number of the house.

In each room you should set up to 4 scenes that you will be able to select via the Living Control system.

For further details on setting up Rako systems contact Rako.

Fitting a RAV LC

The RAV LC should be plugged into any unused wall pad port on the RoomBox/Event. If there are no free ports, it can share a port with a wall pad using an RJ45 splitter.
