Automatic features are another convenience that gives AlarmCAD
the edge in design. Speeding up the process with greater accuracy allows the designer
more time to design rather than also taking care of sometimes small and frustrating
details. AlarmCAD also allows for manual input if the designer needs or prefers
tighter control over the project.
Circuit Connections have an automatic mode and a manual
mode. In the automatic mode you can connect appliances to the required source circuits,
include circuits in the connecting wire paths and choose automatic device address
assignments. Or if you want more control you can manually connect appliances to
features include automatically or manually including conduit in wire paths, choosing
selective circuits to run in conduits, automatic generation of Riser Details based
on active panel/appliance connections and visually indicate appliances that do not
have a valid source connection.
