remote-scenarioUser Scenario


This component allows the end user to define its own custom scenario using its own device. This allows the user not having to call system integrator for the configuration of a specific scenario which will be automatically saved on EVE system.

Common use cases:

  • the user wants several scenarios at disposal in order to customize and edit them as the best prefer;
  • the user wants his scenario to be raised anytime a specific physical switch is turned On and/or Off;
  • the user wants his scenario to be raised anytime a specific event occurs on the system.

COMPONENT’S PROPERTIES

Customizable component’s title and icon. Please refer to “Common properties” guide.

GUI

This component’s sample is made by using Graphic UI gateway.

Please refer to “Gateways / Protocols” chapter in order to get further info.

Follow optional settings, useful when you want to trigger the scenario depending on the value of a switch.

Trigger component: Switch / Pulse component  that triggers the recorded scene;

Evaluate when:

Trigger changes from Off to On: User Scenario is triggered only when the trigger component goes to On;
Trigger changes from On to Off: User Scenario is triggered only when the trigger component goes to Off;
At any change of the trigger: User Scenario is triggered anytime trigger component goes to On or Off;

Sunrise/Sunset: you can choose to activate the scenario during the Sunrise or the Sunset, for this type of dropdown you can only use the Sunrise/Sunset component;

Note: text field available for additional information on the component from the admin side.

Reminder before continuing:

  • Download and Install EVE Logic plugin to enable plugins (link);
  • After loading .eve project to the server, run EVE Remote app, log in and then wait a couple of minutes for logics activation.

Three different view mode possibilities: “CLASSIC”, “MODAL” and “HIDDEN”. Learn more about component’s view modes.

MAP VIEW MODE


 

  1. In order to start recording, hold down on “User Scenario” command icon for longer than a second and click the red circle on the top right of the window.
  2. You know you are in recording mode due to the fact that “Home”  icon will become completely red and start blinking indicating that recording mode is active.
  3. From now on, any command subjected to state changes that depend on the user’s will be registered. It is possible to move within the app interface and select any change: lights, dimmers, temperature, etc.
  4. You can save the registration at any time by clicking longer than a second on the “User Scenario” icon. 
  5. User Scenario”command icon will return back to the original color and the Home menu icon will stop flashing to indicate that the registration status has been finished.

 

 

 From now on, with a simple click on the “User Scenario” icon all the changes previously recorded will be played on the system.

 

 

 

 

 

  

 Holding down the “User Scenario” icon you will able to customize the starting time of your components, remember that the time format is mm:ss (minutes:seconds).

CLASSIC VIEW MODE


 

  1. In order to start recording, hold down on “User Scenario” command icon for longer than a second and click the red circle on the top right of the window.
  2. You know you are in recording mode due to the fact that “Home”  icon will become completely red and start blinking indicating that recording mode is active.
  3. From now on, any command subjected to state changes that depend on the user’s will be registered. It is possible to move within the app interface and select any change: lights, dimmers, temperature, etc.
  4. You can cancel the registration at any time by clicking on the “User Scenario” icon. 
  5. User Scenario”command icon will return back to the original color and the Home menu icon will stop flashing to indicate that the registration status has been finished.

PRESENCE SIMULATION

The presence simulation represents the impression that there is always someone at home. Using a user scenario it is possible to easily program events such as lighting a light, watering. movement of the shutters etc. in order to simulate the presence of people in the home and discourage any bad guys to sneak into the house while you are outside the home.

STEP 1

As a first step, we drag the components we need to create our presence simulation, in this case, we will use a User Scenario and 4 Switches that will represent for this example the lights inside our house. If the project was already existing it will be possible, simply by dragging the User Scenario component, to be able to use this function with devices already configured previously.

STEP 2

  • We place the components inside the interface (in this example we will use the map view) and begin recording our presence simulation by holding down the “User Scenario” icon until the scenario screen opens automatically.
  • We press the red icon at the top right to start recording.
  • We’ll know that the recording is started correctly by seeing the house icon in the upper left corner blink red.
  • Now click on the lights / components that we want to activate automatically. Once done, to finish the recording, we hold down the User Scenario icon (the red house in the upper left corner will stop flashing).
  • In the next step we will see how to set the start times of each individual component.

STEP 3

Holding down the User Scenario icon will display the scenario screen in which we will find our previous recordings. By clicking on each individual Timer we could set the waiting time between one component and another. In this case our Presence Simulation will start as follows:

  • Kitchen light will light up immediately.
  • Living room light will turn on after 45 minutes.
  • Bedroom light will turn on after 30 minutes.
  • Bathroom light will light up after 50 minutes.

STEP 4

Once the Timers have been set, it will be possible to start our Presence Simulation simply by clicking on the User Scenario icon.

Well done, keep learning!
