Subject: 3rd Party Control Systems - Programming Best Practices
Explanation: When working with Atlona products for control purposes and using a 3rd party controller, please follow these recommended guidelines for best practice:
- When sending multiple commands in succession, please include a minimum delay of 100ms between commands.
- A common practice is to poll devices for power or other status such as the currently active input. We recommend that instead of polling for status that you use our devices' Broadcast on feature which will report status feedback after any action. Please see your device's User's Manual or API for more information on how to enable Broadcast.
- If you must poll your Atlona device for power or other status, please ensure polling intervals are 15 seconds at minimum.
