Events (previously called Sequences) are a quick way to do something with multiple steps in your LightwaveRF home at any time you want.
A great example is ‘Make cup of Tea’. This is something that would have the same steps every time that you can automate instead and fire on demand. Think of it like a script your house follows to do a task. For making a cup of tea, the kettle is turned on, then the lights in the kitchen are turned on, before both are turned off again.
In these instructions we will use "Going to Bed" as an example in the images but you can add any devices or actions you like.
Note: Instruction images relate to previous app version, some steps may differ
You can store 32 events
Each event can have 9 ‘actions’ excluding time delays
The minimum time delay is 3 seconds. If no time delay is set, this will be added automatically. This is to allow the WiFiLink to have the time to send out the previous action
If you use the ‘Add Random Delay’ feature, the delay time between the actions will be anything between 3 seconds and what you set
You cannot set a minimum random time delay, but you can add the same action twice with a set time in between. For example:
Lights to turn on then turn off again randomly within 2 hours, but only after they have been on for 30mins
To achieve this, set the first action to turn the lights on with a 30min delay. Then the second action to turn the lights on again (this won’t change the state of the lights as they are already on) with a random time delay of 1hr30mins. The final delay will be to turn the lights off.
Home and Away are default events you can access easily from the home page. When selected they will run the event and so can turn your lights on to greet you, or put your house into standby when you leave. With the new LightwaveRF heating products, pressing this will also set your heating to the appropriate profile as well as controlling your power and lighting products.
