When the Home Theater turns ON, it provides a 12V Status signal that is connected to the Home Theater
Sync Input on the rear panel of the ZR-4630. This 12V Status signal provides the ON/OFF status of the
Home Theater to the ZR-4630.
The moment a valid Home Theater Sync signal is present at the ZR-4630, the ZR-4630’s 12V Control
Output sends a turn-on trigger for a Voltage-Triggered AC Power Strip (i.e., Niles AC-3), activating latch-
ing source components.
When the Home Theater is turned OFF, the ZR-4630 checks itself and any other ZR-4630’s in the sys-
tem to see if any zones are still ON. If all zones are OFF the 12V Control Output shuts OFF, turning OFF
the latching source components. Power OFF IR commands for turning OFF the IR controlled shared
source components are also issued.
Method 3. Integrated Home Theater without 12V Home Theater Sync and using Niles R-4 Commands
The Home Theater IR Remote (programmed with the Niles R-4 IR commands) sends IR commands to the
ZR-4630 via the IR Input located on the rear panel. This enables control of the shared source components
for users in the Home Theater.
All the actual IR commands for shared source components are programmed into the ZR-4630. When a
Niles IR command is received, the corresponding programmed source IR commands are sent to the
Flasher Output dedicated to the shared source component that is selected (i.e., Source 2 = Flasher 2,
Source 3 = Flasher 3, Source 4 = Flasher 4). Identical source components can be individually operated
with this method.
Important Note: shared source components that are unique in the system may have their actual IR com-
mands programmed into the Home Theater remote and issued for simple IR repeating using this method.
When the Home Theater is turned OFF, the Home Theater Remote sends a Niles OFF command to the
ZR-4630. The ZR-4630 then checks all zones, for all ZR-4630’sin the system. If all zones are OFF,the
12V Control Output shuts OFF, turning OFF the latching source components. Power OFF IR commands
for the IR controlled shared source components, programmed into the ZR-4630 are also issued condi-
tionally, based on the Source Sync status of the shared source components.
SYSTEM BUSY INDICATION
The ZR-4630 has a built-in System Busy Indication mode that is displayed on the Master Key LEDs of the Solo™
Master Keypad Module. If the ZR-4630 receives simultaneous commands from two different users and each
user is located in a separate zone, the user who does not get the expected response will be alerted bythe Master
Key. That Master Key LED will quickly blink RED three times. The user who received the RED flashing Master
Key simply issues their command again.
Important Note: IR commands and delays included in the sequence for Master Keys also cause the system to indi-
cate busy while they are being executed.
The ZR-4630 has a built-in Paging Indication mode that is displayed on a Master Key LED of the Solo™Master
Keypad Module. If the ZR-4630 sends a page to a zone, the user is alerted by the Master Key. That Master Key LED
will blink slowly GREEN. The Master Key LED resumes its last state (ON or OFF) when the page is completed.
Important Note: Paging takes priority over all system functions until the page has ended.
