There is no zone list capability. You will need to have separate sensors, actuators, and programs for each zone. But if the programming gets at all complex it is helpful to use a single common program to do most of the work across the zones. Each zone still needs its own simple program that uses global variables as arguments to interact with the common main program. In general they fill global variables with zone-specific sensor values, then call the main program to do the calculations (using RUN), and finally copy the calculation results from global variables into the zone-specific actuators.
