List of actions per module
Q. Setting the time and date on a VMBGPODx glass input module
A. The Velbus date and time can be set on a VMBGPODx glass input module with oled display. For this, the clock page has to be activated. If this is not the case, activate it first using Velbuslink, by going into the module's configuration settings, tab "Touch Panel" > "Preferences" and checking "show the clock page"

You can now set/modify the Velbus date and time on the glass panel itself. To do so, navigate to the clock page on the glass panel. Depending on your configuration, you can do so using LEFT and RIGHT (the two horizontal lines next to the oled display), or DOWN (the vertical line under the oled display). When you reach the clock page, press DOWN (the vertical line under the oled display) for at least 5 seconds. You are now in the date and time settings. By using LEFT and RIGHT you can navigate through the various date and time settings, by pressing the indicated buttons you can change the values.

Attention: if you have setup a master clock, or if you have a Home Center that synchronizes time and date, your settings will be overwritten at the next synchronisation.
Q. How do I control / program the thermostat functions of my VMBGPOD?
A. The reference sheet: "VMBGPOD thermostat operation: overview of operation and programming" gives a complete overview of how to control and program the VMBGPOD thermostat functions.
If you specifically want to modify an existing program step, follow the steps on "VMBGPOD thermostat operation: modifying program steps".
Q. Using a glass control module as code keypad
A. Velbus input modules can be used as simple code keypads by configuring the right set of actions. Read more...(PDF)
Q. There are strange characters on the display of my module
A. When there are parts of previous texts or icons, or strange characters on the display of the module, try doing Sync > Write in VelbusLink with "only write changes" unchecked.
