How to Use Actions List

N-Button Pro/Lite supports Actions List. It allows you to add several actions to a list. The actions list can be executed easily by clicking a Customized Button.

Here will show you how to use Actions List.

The example task : turn on 4 relay channels one by one with 10 seconds interval, and then turn all off after 20 seconds.

Be sure you have your network or serial port device connected with your computer, and also have N-Button software installed. Here, I have Robot Electronics ETH484 relay board connected.

1. After launching N-Button Pro/Lite Manager, add the device to Device Manager.
