How to add a Routine?
Go to Routines page. Click the add (‘+’) button on the lower right corner. A new page pops up.
- Give your routine a nice name.
- Choose the devices.
- Choose their on/off timings.
- Choose the frequency (Once/Daily/Days)
- Finally save the routine.
It appears on your Routine’s page. It then works at the specified time.
In case of fan/AC you can specify the speed/temperature as well. These options are prompted when you choose fan/AC device.
Note: - All Routines are time based. Specifying “On Time” would turn on the listed device(s) and specifying “Off Time” would turn off the listed device(s). This is important while selecting fan or AC.
For example –
If you choose the fan speed to be 3 and set the “Off Time”, fan would turn off at that specified time. It won’t start at speed 3. Vice versa holds true. And same applies to AC.
