What does BV#4 represent on the ATV61/212 with BacNet control?

Issue: 
Why does Binary Value Objects Instance #4 HAND/AUTO ACT not change state when the Hand/OFF/Auto switch changes position from Hand to auto?

Product Line:  
Altivar 61, ATV212 with BacNet communication.

Environment:
All Altivar 61 and Altivar 212 with BacNet Control

Cause:  
Misuse of BVOI#4

Resolution:
Binary Value Objects Instance #4 will change state to indicate if the drive is in local or remote mode.  This BVOI changes when the LOC REM button on the face of the ATV212 drive or the F4key on the ATV61 is pressed to indicate if the drive is being controlled remotely, or locally from the built-in keypad on the drive.   It will not change state when the HAND/OFF/BYPASS  or the HOA switch change position.
