Release 2017.1, May 2017
Permissions enable to set various types of access rights to devices and to Smart Rules. For example, a service person may want to limit users to perform certain actions which may inhibit functionality of the system. At the same time they may retain access to weekly schedules, blinds sensitivity to sun light etc.
Detailed specification and configuration information is here.
Lighting scenes configuration rev2.0
Lighting scenes setup and control has been reworked from the ground up. Please watch configuration instructions video here.
Multi-value switch is a type of virtual device that can have more than two states – examples can be e.g. multiple stages of an alarm, multiple lighting scenes within one room, fan coil speeds etc.
Electric meter widget
Read-out of impulse counter electric meters has been added. It displays actual energy consumption, cumulative historical consumption and charts.
In 2017.1 it is not yet possible to assign smart rules automation to the measured data. We work on an update to enable it.
Set to Automatic mode – “push buttons action” smart rule
A push button can now be used to change device mode from Manual to Automatic.
Blinds automation – Depth of sun rays
The smart rule Blinds adjustment according to sun has received a significant update.
- Level of blinds: Option to define how many meters of direct sun light shall be let in – in case users don’t want to block sun rays altogether. This setting may also be useful for roller shutters.
- Angle of blinds: Option to keep blinds down and control only the angle.
Blinds automation – Angle control update
The smart rule Control blinds with Up and Down push buttons has been updated to choose behavior type and to enable to keep blinds down and only allow control of the angle.
- Behavior type Short press: When the button is pressed, the blinds travel all the way up or down. Another press stops them. If the option Allow only change of slats angle is checked, the angle changes from 0% to 100% or vice versa depending on the previous movement direction.
- Behavior type Short and long press: On short press, blinds only change angle by 25%. E.g. if these are 90 degrees blinds, they change their angle by 0.25 * 90 = 22.5 degrees. Long press sends them all the way up or down. In case the checkbox Allow only change of slats angle is checked, long press changes the angle either to 0 degrees or to 90 / 180 degrees depending on the type of blinds.
Push buttons control – double click and triple click
Push buttons behavior has been updated to also include double click and triple click – besides the previously available short press and long press.
