Configuring actions triggered by geofencing

The geofencing feature allows you to put a location in present or absent mode automatically.

Here are the steps to follow to determine the actions that will be achieved by your smart devices when you use geofencing.

  2. Tap + Create an Automation and choose Presence as the trigger type.
  3. Fill in the required field with the name of the automation.
  4. Determine when you want the automation to happen.
  5. Choose the devices you want to automate.
  6. Tap Save.

To select an Away setpoint, you must:

  1. From the devices screen, select the device to which you want to assign an away notice, then access the settings for that device by pressing .
  2. Open the Configuration menu, then scroll down until you see the Away setpoint field.
  3. Select the option of your choice displayed in the drop-down menu.
  4. Press the Save button located at the bottom of the page.
