You can control and edit your devices from the “Devices” menu. From the device menu, tap the “three vertical black dots” to the right of your device’s name. Or swipe from right to left on the device. Press the pencil icon to get to the “Device Settings” menu. You can also tap any of the four icons to the left of the pencil icon, and you will be brought directly to that feature.
Directly beneath your device name, you can now tap “Show in Favorites” and your device will be saved to the Favorites page. You can then navigate to the Favorites page (through the app drawer) and control your device from there as well. Learn more about Favorites here. (Since FAQ’s are not yet published, see the “Favorites FAQ”)
Devices can be controlled using two independent sliders. The top slider allows users to adjust the dimming level while the bottom slider serves to adjust the color temperature of your lights. Also, there are four preset dim/color profiles below the two sliders. Simply tap any of the four presets and you will see the two sliders automatically adjust to fit the dim/color positions for that preset.
The Avi-on app allows you to create custom features (like schedules and scenes) and then choose which devices to assign them to.
You will assign these features to your devices from the “Device Settings” menu. Note that you will still have the option to create features from the “Device Settings” menu, but the ability to assign pre-created features to your devices makes the app much more flexible.
At the bottom of the “Device Settings” screen, you will see the same four icons that appeared on the slider in the “Devices” menu. The remainder of this FAQ will discuss how to edit and control your devices using these four features. Note that you can access these features from either menu at any time.
Assigning Scenes to your Device
First, tap the Scenes icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. You will then arrive at a page showing scenes for that specific device. Here you will be able to see pre-created scenes that the device is already a member of, as well as create a new scene that the device will belong to.
To edit an existing scene, tap the blue pencil icon. The following app screens will allow you to modify that scene and then save it.
To create a new scene, tap the blue plus “+” icon. Enter a unique name for your new scene and then follow the prompts through the following screens to finishing creating your scene. Note that once the scene has been created, it will be saved in the “Scenes” menu that can be accessed through the app drawer.
Assigning your Device to a Group
The Groups icon is adjacent to the scenes icon. Tap this icon and you will arrive at a page showing groups for that specific device. Similar to the scenes page above, you will be able to see pre-created groups that the device is already a member of, as well create a new group that the device will belong to.
To edit an existing group, tap the blue pencil icon. The following screens will allow you to modify that group and then save it.
To create a new group, tap the blue plus “+” icon. Enter a unique name for your new group and then follow the prompts through the following screens to finishing creating your group. Note that once the group has been created, it will be saved in the “Groups” menu that can be accessed through the app drawer.
Tap the hourglass icon and you will arrive at the “Countdown” page for your device. You can set a countdown timer by swiping up or down on the time shown in the large white circle. Tap ON or OFF under the word “Action” to control whether your device will be turned ON/OFF when the countdown timer reaches zero.
Once you have customized your countdown, press Start.
When the countdown timer reaches zero, your device will be activated or deactivated and you will receive a notification message that your device has just turned ON/OFF. Press OK to dismiss the message. Click on Settings at the top left of the Countdown page to return to the “Device Settings” menu.
Assigning Schedules to your Device
Tap the calendar icon in the bottom right hand corner of the page and you will be taken to the scheduling window for that device. Tap the schedule you would like to assign to the device, and then press Done.
You will then see a screen that says “Saving…” with a status bar. Once the schedule is saved to your device, you will be brought back to the “Device Settings” menu. You will now be able to see a note under the name of your device that will indicate the next time the device is scheduled to turn ON/OFF. An example of the note is shown below, “On at 4:45 am.”
Remember that you can control/edit your devices at any time from either the “Device Settings” menu or the Device Dashboard. For more detailed information about features covered in this app (like scenes, groups and schedules), see the specific FAQ’s for each of those features.
