The Remote Input/Output (RIO) Modules extend the Input and output capabilities of Comfort. Each RIO Module has 8 Input/ and Output points. Up to 15 RIO Modules can be connected to a Comfort II ULTRA system providing a further 120 non-alarm inputs and 120 outputs.

RIO Input functions;
  • receives Comfort IR codes (with the same function as the KP03/KP04 IR receiver) from the RC01 remote control or universal learning remote controls like Philips Pronto or Ligitech Harmony to trigger Comfort Responses. Infrared Receiver modules (IRR01) or the IRD01 IR Dome must be connected to the input to receive IR signals.
  • receives X10 IR codes from the X10 UR24 RF/IR Remote control or Philips Pronto to activate X10 codes directly.
  • Receives CBus2 IR codes from the Clipsal 5088TX handheld IR remote control (8 buttons, 4 sets A,B, C, D)
  • accepts a switch contact (or digital 5V logic level signal) to trigger Responses when the contact is opened and/or closed.
  • RIO Inputs cannot be used for alarms, they will not trigger alarms.
RIO Output functions;
  • Provides digital 12V/0V open collector outputs
  • Drives LEDs (with a series resistor) for indication purposes.
  • Transmits Infrared remote (IR) control signals by connecting an Infrared LED transmitter (IRM01, IR01W, IR02W)
  • Drives 8 reed relays on the RLY02 module to provide dry contacts for external triggering or 4 relays on RLY01.
These inputs and outputs are not part of the 96 Inputs and 96 Outputs of the Comfort Control panel, LEMs and SEMs. They are numbered as input/output 129 to 248.

Numbering of RIO Inputs and Outputs
RIO Inputs and Outputs are numbered from 129 onwards for zone responses and commands

RIO #1: 129 to 136
RIO #2: 137 to 144
RIO #3: 145 to 152
RIO #4: 153 to 160
RIO #5: 161 to 168
RIO #6: 169 to 176
RIO #7: 177 to 184
RIO #8: 185 to 192
RIO #9: 193 to 200
RIO #10: 201 to 208
RIO #11: 209 to 216
RIO #12: 217 to 224
RIO #13: 225 to 232
RIO #14: 233 to 240
RIO #15: 241 to 248

The temperature sensor in the SCS I think it is not good solution. Is necessary included an SCS for to access the temperature sensors. An excellent solution I think is the creation of a new RIO (RIO02) with 8 inputs and 8  outputs analog (0 - 10V), so we can place sensors of temperature, light, humidity, etc..
