Luxor - Setting Up Programs


Read Article

The PROGRAMS screen is where all daily running programs are set up. Programs are set by calling up fixtures that have been assigned to groups or themes (see example programs in the chart below). For information on assigning fixtures to groups, see the support page Assigning Light Fixtures into Groups.

Time Sunset/Sunrise Mixed
  • For programs not turning ON, check all programming steps and Data-based programming. Learn more
  • For programs not turning OFF, verify there is an event(s) for turning Goups(s)/Themes(s) OFF (e.g., step 9).


Step 1

Using the scroll wheel, select the PROGRAMS option.

Step 2

Each program is designated by a letter ("A" through "G") at the top right section of the screen. Using the scroll wheel, select a LETTER. If this is your first program, skip to step 3.

Step 3

Using the scroll wheel, select the DAYS OF THE WEEK. Push to select. Selecting days of the week designates which days the program will run based on the event settings. Date Based Scheduling (365) Learn more

Step 4

Calendar programming, if desired, allows a program(s) to run during specific dates throughout the year. Learn more

Step 5

The EVENT field specifies how the system initiates each EVENT. The options include SUNRISE, SUNSET, and/or TIME. All of these events can be used within the same program if desired.

Step 6

The TIME field specifies what time the programmed event will occur. Using the scroll wheel, select a TIME of day or +/- 1-minute increments if using Sunrise/Sunset. Sunrise/sunset times are based on the astronomical timing set by the location (longitude and latitude) of the unit. Optional timed offsets (+/- 1-minute increments) are available for sunrise/sunset events. Time events are determined by time of day.

Step 7

The GROUP/THEME field specifies which group or theme is associated with each event. Scroll right to select GROUPS. Scroll left to select available THEMES.

Step 8

The COLOR field specifies the desired color for group events. Using the scroll wheel, select a COLOR if the desired group is using COLOR fixtures. Colors are not available for themes. Learn more

Step 9

The % field specifies the desired intensity for each event. Values range from 0% (off) to 100%. Theme events are limited to ON or OFF. Using the scroll wheel, set the PERCENTAGE for the group(s). Multiple events can be created to initiate/change various intensities but must be designated to "off" using a separate event in order for them to extinguish. 

NOTE: Make sure you have OFF intensities set for the groups/themes or the program will continue to run without shutting down.

(365) Date Based Scheduling

Calendar programming allows a program(s) to run during specific dates throughout the year.  To set a calendar-based program, enter the Date-Based Scheduling screen by selecting the calendar icon located in the right-hand corner of the Program screen.  Users can select the START and END dates for each desired program. Selecting EXCLUSIVE will allow the controller to only run the specified program during the requested dates. The controller will revert back to the non-exclusive programs after the controller is outside of the Exclusive date range.
