Devices

  • Increased the number of available channels from 100 to 150.
    • Known Issue: The channel display on the Trigger device model has not yet been updated to show 3 digits, so channels 100-150 will appear as 00-50 on the device.  This is purely a cosmetic issue and does not affect functionality.
