In this video, we will use the programming environment akYtec ALP to create a multi-mode light control system that only requires one pushbutton. Therefore, the program can be used for a large range of applications, from smart homes to industrial automation solutions. For realizing the light control akYtec’s PR200 programmable relais could be used, other Mini PLCs from akYtec feature similar I/Os to and are very well suited to accomplish the same task.

In the following, you will find the timestamps for the video:
