[ In-room Mode ] This mode is activated automatically when a presence or a movement is detected in the room. We can associate comfort setups with this mode, for example: thermostat at 22°C, bright lighting….

[ Sleep Mode ] This mode is activated when the room-manager detects that the occupants of the room are sleeping. Sleeping detection is detected by an absence of movements during a certain time with presence continously detected. The adjustment of the detection time is on Parameters menu. (For detections of movement and presence, see the menu [  Sensors ]).

[ At-home Mode ] This mode is activated at the end of a certain time after you leave the room. This mode is maintained as long as another room-manager (others room-manager) reports that a presence is detected in another room. (Adjustable Time on [Parameters] menu).

[ Night Mode ] This mode is activated when the night is detected (either by the time beach or by the twilight detector) when the room is unoccupied.

[ Away Mode ] This mode is activated when no presence is detected in the room during certain time (adjustable delay on [ Parameters ] menu).

[ Vacation Mode ] The room-manager switch to this mode after having remained in mode absent during several hours (adjustable delay on [ Parameters ] menu).

Each item above leads to the menu [  Configuration ], in which you can modify the parameters that an application or a device must use when the mode concerned becomes active.

[ Parameters ] This menu allows adjustments of automatic mode change parameters, in particular the delays between modes.


Menu [ Parameters ]

Contains all the parameters setting for the automatic mode change. For most usage, the default values should be adequate. After modifying these parameters, it is advised to check that the automatic mode change functions properly.

[ Auto sleep timeout:  5  minutes ]

When the room-manager detects that the occupants of the room sleep, after this delay, it moves automatically to the sleep mode.

[ Wake up delay ] [  10  minutes ].

In sleep mode, if you leave the room for more than this delay, the room-manager switch automatically to night mode or at-home mode, according to the night-time setting and the twilight detection.

[ At-home timeout ] [  3  minutes ].

In mode present, if you leave the room for more than this delay, the room-manager passes automatically in night mode or at-home mode, according to the night-time setting and the twilight detection.

[ Away-mode timeout ] [  10  minutes ]

You are considered as absent at the end of this delay time if your presence is not detected any more by all of the room-managers installed in the house.

[ Vacation time ] 24  heures ] If the room-manager remains continuously in away mode for this length of time, it considers that you left in prolonged absence. So it changes then automatically towards the vacation mode.
