Using Scenes

Scenes are used to group the actions of your devices so you can trigger multiple commands at once in Neviweb according to the time of day (morning, bedtime, etc.) or events. These are predefined ambiances that you can activate from time to time, if necessary.

Scenes for all occasions

  • Scenes for different activities

    If you have a gym at home, dim the lights and lower the temperature during your workout for the best comfort.

  • Scenes for your vacations, outings, and lon weekends

    If you go on vacation for several days, assign commands to your devices to reduce your energy consumption. For example, lower the set temperature of the thermostats and turn off the water heater to reduce your electricity consumption.

Note: make sure to deactivate the time automations (for Zigbee devices) or put your devices in manual mode (for Wi-Fi and Mi-Wi devices) for scenes used for a long absence. Otherwise, the automations and schedules will resume their course at the next event encountered, thus canceling the commands assigned by the scene.

  • Everyday-life scenes

    If your wake-up time or bedtime time changes frequently, you may want to create scenes so you can trigger setpoints when you need them instead of waiting for your time automations (Zigbee devices) or schedules (Wi-Fi and Mi-Wi devices). By doing so, you will reach the desired comfort at the moment that best works for you.

  • Scenes to create custom ambiances

    Movie nights or dinner with friends are moments that require adequate lighting and temperature. Using the scenes, you are an action away from the perfect ambiance to impress your guests and family.

  • A scene for every season

    Seasonal scenes are particularly useful for locations that are used occasionally, like cottages. Scenes can be used to set devices to a specific temperature for winter or to turn off all thermostats during summer. Make sure, however, that your time automations are disabled (for Zigbee devices) or that the devices are in manual mode (for Wi-Fi and Mi-Wi devices). Otherwise, the scene will be deactivated automatically by the next event encountered in an automation or a schedule.
