Scenes

UltraSync – Scenes

In this video I briefly go over the steps to add a scene and associate it with the schedule that was previously created. At the time of recording I changed the name of the schedule to MTWTF8PM8AM. Having the name be more specific to the actual schedule will allow me to remember the details so I can associate it to scenes I want during the same time frame.

Scenes will allow you to do 1 or a series of actions. You can have your panel automate certain aspects and when you need to do quite a few of them then scenes is the solution.


Ideas:
  1. Single mom comes home in the evening, when the alarm is disarmed, set a series of lights to turn on
  2. Example in the video: AC unit turns on at 8PM, sets temperature to 72, sets type to cool, sets fan to Automatic. Schedule ends the following day at 8am.
Instructions:
  1. Log into your UltraSync panel
  2. Click on Advanced
  3. Click on Scenes
    1. Set your Device
    2. Name your new scene
    3. When Scene Should Work
      1. You will set this to the schedule created in the previous video. (Basically, do this during at this time)
    4. Scene Trigger Type
      1. Scene will be triggered by a Schedule (for this example). Select schedule activated.
    5. Activate Schedule (make sure you set it to the schedule which was already created)
    6. Scene Results (this only appears AFTER you have selected a device)
      1. System Mode -> Cool (Heat if you want to heat the house)
      2. Fan Mode -> Auto (only turn on the fan if the air is being cooled)
      3. Set Cooling Point (sets the temperature you want the unit to be running at during the scene)
      4. Set Heating Point (sets the temperature you want the unit to be running at during the scene)
