  • Continuum


An Infinity Numeric and the Forced Entry attribute of a Continuum door object are incompatible value types. 


Use an If/Then/Else expression to evaluate the value of the doors Forced Entry attribute, and the Infinity Numeric's value separately.  Then Switch the state of the output based on the result of the evaluation.

Original Code

  If (AHCASECACC100A ForcedEntry and PerimeterDoors) then Goto AlarmOutputOn

Corrected Code

  If (AHCASECACC100A ForcedEntry = True) and (PerimeterDoors = On) then Goto AlarmOutputOn
