When triggered, a routine will automatically run a set of desired actions in your smart home.
Here are some examples of how you can automate your home using the available routine triggers:
When I arrive home*
Create a routine that will turn on your entryway lights, set your kitchen dimmer to 70%, and turn on your lamp’s outlet when you walk into an empty home.
*This trigger is only available if your property installed a door sensor and motion-detecting device in your entryway.
When I leave home*
Set your lights to turn off and your heat to drop to 65 degrees when you open your door and turn off your entryway switch on your way out.
*This trigger is only available if your property installed a door sensor and a smart switch within arm's reach of your front door.
When a device is controlled
Create a bedtime routine that will turn off all of your other smart devices if your bedroom light is switched off between 9:00 PM-11:00 PM every night.
When a time of day occurs
Create a “Movie Night” routine that will automatically run your “Movie Time” scene at 8:00 PM every Sunday.
When a sensor detects activity*
Create an alert routine that will send email and/or notifications when motion is detected in your home during your normal work hours.
*This trigger is only available if your property installed a door sensor and/or motion-detecting device in your entryway.
