Scenes and Schedules
Last winter, the pilot light went out on my water heater. I did not know how to relight it. I knew it could not be too difficult, but the idea of just “winging it” when gas and flames were involved worried me a little. So I pulled up YouTube, found a video with instructions, and was back in business. All was well and no one lost any eyebrows.
The same principle applies to your security system. If there’s something you’re not sure how to do, you could always call us and ask. But it may be easier on you just to find an instructional video. Each day this week, we’re going to post a new instructional video that will help you get the most from your security system.
In today’s videos, learn how to set scenes and schedules using your Lynx keypad.
But first, it may help to understand the difference between scenes and schedules. Scenes refer to preset settings for your home automation devices. For example, a bedtime scene might dim the lights, close the blinds, lock the doors and arm the security system. A morning scene might turn on lights, adjust the thermostat, and open blinds.
A schedule refers to the time at which each scene should activate. With a schedule in place, your bedtime scene would activate each evening at the time you designate.
If you’d like to talk to a real person about any of this, just contact us. We’d be happy to help!
