Setting up your TIRA or UUIRT device for EC in The Grid 2

Many of our standard grid sets include basic template grids for setting up Environmental Control to use with your TV, Hi-fi and other devices, and are usually set up with the appropriate GEWA command.

However, it is easy to replace this with a TIRA or UUIRT command. Although TIRA and UUIRT systems are different, the set up procedure within The Grid 2 is very similar.


If you have a TIRA system, go to User Settings -> Environmental Control -> TIRA, and select the Auto detect button. This will find the TIRA hardware, ready for you to use. Then return to the grid you wish to edit. This is not required if using UUIRT


Here is an example grid to include all functions for a CD player, but you can edit the grid to look however you want.


Enter editing mode by pressing F11, and choose a cell that you want to edit, such as the Play cell. If there is a GEWA press button command showing in the edit window, delete it.
Click on add a command and type TIRA or UUIRT into the search box top left. Select the relevant UUIRT press button or TIRA press button command from the list, and click on OK.

Select Learn button, and another window will appear. Hold your remote control close to the EC sensor, as instructed, and click on Start learning.
