The most powerful feature of MaxCtrl is its ability to link together two or more
Actions. An Action is any event to MaxCtrl; any X10, IR, Time, Window Log Message, File
Message, Sound, System Command or other Fact.
You link together Actions using one or more Actions as Triggers which, when tripped, cause
Result Actions to occur. For example, a Time Action (say 7:00AM) could be linked to an X10
(Turn On The Coffee Maker) so that at 7:00AM MaxCtrl would turn on the coffee maker.
You can have multiple Action Triggers and multiple Action Results. The Fact can be
that All triggers must be true or Any true trigger will trip the Result. The are many
parameters to enable you to customize MaxCtrl to control almost any scenario possible.
Other Facts can be also be triggers so you can create long chains of events. For example,
might have a chain of Facts that progressively turns lights on and off through the house
the house appear as if somebody is walking through turning lights on and off. You might
chain of Facts when you are out of the house in the evening for security. You can set
delays between each Fact so that one light would turn on, then after a while it would turn
another turn on, etc.
The possibilities are endless.
