3.) Quickly Test Scenes And Rules From Fusion
You can test scenes and rules directly from Fusion without having to access the ClareHome App. Simply deploy your project with your desired changes, re-open the scene or rule that was changed, and select the purple lightning icon.
Important Note: Remember to always re-deploy your project after making changes to scenes or rules to properly test the changes!
4.) You Can Also Directly Test Device Functions
Fusion allows you to test functions and features of devices without having to access the ClareHome App. Accessing the test service of most devices is as simple as opening the configuration settings, selecting the Test tab, and selecting your desired test device function.
