What Is An Automation?

Clare_Smart_Home_Automation_Steps.jpgThe Jetsons did smart home first in 2062. Did you know that you can already do the same with Clare? Not only can you control your smart home at the push of a button or by voice, you can easily create automations that do everything from turning on the lights for you, to setting the temperature when you unlock the door. Today, we'll guide you through the steps on how you can start automating your smart home.

Creating an automation is easy, and can be done through the ClareHome App. Don't worry about breaking anything as you can always edit or delete your automation. Before we get into the "how", lets look at "what" are automations.

Automation rules are similar to scenes, but occur automatically in response to an action. For example, I can have my garage lights turn on automatically (using a ClareVue Light Switch) when I open the door that's equipped with a contact sensor (Clare Window/Door Sensor). In another example, you can have your house doors lock when the alarm system has been armed.

 

Let's Get Started

Step 1: Navigate to the automations setup page:
