Timers can be used to truly automate your house with LightwaveRF. You can easily set an event, a mood or a device to switch on/off/dim/start/open/stop/close at any time and to repeat this on set days or months. It is the LightwaveRF way of using an old fashioned rotary plug in socket when you push pins to turn it on and off at times you want.
To setup a timer:
You can view all your timers from the Timers tab. You can edit any by tapping it in the list and then choosing ‘Edit’ at the top right
You can store 32 timers
If you are applying multiple timers for the same day or for the same product, consider using an event instead
To have a timer start at random, you must use an event. The first step in the event can essentially be a ‘dummy’ step, just to start the timer. You can set a random delay after this step that will be a random delay before the ‘real’ first step. For example, to turn your lights on randomly at night, first set an event with step 1 as lights off then a random delay before step 2 is lights on. As your lights will already be off the timer will begin without actually doing anything.
You can pause a timer by selecting it in the list of timers then tapping Pause. Paused timers appear pink in the list of timers. To activate it again, select it in the list of timers and tap ‘Activate’.
