An additional GUI using capacitive touch or simple push button(s) and/or an LCD can be used to display local values and enter data. A more sophisticated GUI may also be achieved via a master actuator, IP gateway or smartphone. A real-time clock (RTC) could easily be added to switch between different operation modes, depending on the day, time, holiday, etc. All RTCs could also be synchronized within the system.
