What is Automation?

Automation is an execution of actions when conditions are met. Conditions could be triggered by timer, by sensors, or by switches. For example, turns off the light at 10pm every day; automatically turns off the air conditioner when you leave home; automatically turns on the corridor light; automatically turns on light when motion is detected.

4. The automation package consists of conditions and actions. Actions are executed when the conditions are met.

For example, select the condition “Temperature and Humidity Sensor”, set the temperature above X degrees, and select the action “Hub Alarms”, which means that when the temperature is detected above X degrees, the hub alarms.
