Set Area Emergency

During an emergency, this command automatically sets the lighting level of all fixtures in the area to a maximum level of 100% (full-on), so the area is lit up.

area_id: Area Identifier. Use the Get All Areas API , or in EM, select Facility > Floor > Area in the left panel, and click the Settings tab to get the Area ID.
