Q. Sometimes Velbuslink shows the wrong status
A. Caution: Velbuslink only detects changes on the bus, because the software can only process the pulses that pass through the bus.
When Velbuslink indicates that the contact is closed and you take tension off the bus, then the contacts will be open when the tension comes back on, but Velbuslink has not detected it yet, since the opening of the relay contacts has not been set on the bus.
After tension is restored, collapse and expand the relay in Velbuslink. Velbuslink then retrieves the latest status of the module, and displays it correctly.
However, most input modules set their status on the bus immediately after tension is restored. All coupled relay channels respond to this instantly. This method enables Velbus to respond instantly to sensors and such. The output modules however do not set their statuses on the bus.
Q. Switch lights by means of movement detection, light sensor and push button
A. A (non-Velbus) movement sensor and a (non-Velbus) light sensor are connected to a VMB7IN input module.
The light outside needs to be activated by the movement detection, but only when it's dark enough. At the same time, a push button needs to be able to switch the light on and off at any time (day or night). Read more ... (PDF)
Q. My program steps do not seem to work?
A. When you configure program steps in Velbuslink, make sure you also set the correct active program for the module. This can be done in the same window (see screenshot below). (If the "active program" option is not visible or inactive, make sure Velbuslink is connected to the installation.)

For some of the less recent modules you may have to right-click on an input channel, select "Operate", and set the active program in the pop-up window.
