  2. Scroll down and select Event Macros: 
  3. You will then select which event you want to trigger your succession of commands:
    1. Room On- applies when you first launch control of a room
    2. Room Off- applies when you select room off on the top corner of the touch panel
    3. Volume Up- applies when pressing the volume up button

    5. Mute Audio- applies when pressing the mute audio button
    6. Unmute Audio- applies when pressing the unmute audio button
