     1= House Modes Plugin = 
     2== Overview == 
     3The '''House Modes Plugin''' allows you to use House Modes in scenes, either as a trigger or as an action. You can create a scene to change the House Mode to '''night''' ar 8:00 PM or turn on a single light when you are '''away'''. 
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of 
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress. 
     5=== Using the plugin in scenes === 
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to  
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way''' 
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and 
    9 culture. 
     7This plugin can be used in scenes either as a trigger or as an action.

    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created 
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample 
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains  
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.

    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in 
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.  
     13To use the plugin as a action for the scene, after selecting the trigger for the scene which can be a schedule (Switch to ''night'' mode at 8:00 PM) or a device (Switch to ''home'' mode when the front door is unlocked), click on ''Next step'' and under ''Device Actions'' select the device '''House Modes Plugin'''. You can select any of the 4 modes that the scene will set when it's triggered.

     17=== Configuring the Polling Rate === 
    29 Enjoy! [[BR]] 
    30 ''The Trac Team'' 
     19If you intend to use this plugin just as an action for scenes this option can be left as it is. If you want a change in House Modes (from the Dashboard for example) to trigger a scene, the POLLING_RATE variable can be change to alter the time at which the plugin checks if the House Mode has been changed manually. By default this variable is set at 15 seconds. 
    32 == Starting Points == 
     21To change it you have to find the plugin in your ''Devices'', click on the arrow marked ''Settings'', go to ''Advanced'' and scroll down until you find the '''Variables''' section. Here you can set any value is seconds for the POLLING_RATE variable but it is recommended to keep it above 10 seconds.
