How do I synchronize time and schedules for daylight savings or after a power outage?

Avi-on products are easy to synchronize for daylight savings. Just turn one of your lights on/off once with the app. This automatically resets the clocks inside the switches.

Avi-on products work just like analog products when the power goes out: the clocks stop for the duration of the outage. In the US, there are lots of "micro outages" that we are not even aware of. They range from a few seconds to a few minutes. The outages are one of the reasons that your clocks tend to lose time and drift a bit over several months.

Easy Way to Synchronize Clocks and Reset Schedules

  • When the clocks inside your devices lose time, then your schedules will be delayed. 
  • It is easy to re-synchronize the clocks inside your Avi-on compatible products: just use the app to turn one device on or off. The rest of the products will synch to the one that you turned on or off.

Optional Way to Synchronize Clocks

If you want to manually check the clock on your device, then you can use the "i" for information command on the Edit screen. It is in the upper right corner of the Edit screen. From the Information screen, you can manually refresh the clock.

To manually refresh the clock first navigate to the edit screen by tapping the "three vertical dots" icon then the "pencil" form the dashboard.

  

Next, select the "i" in the upper right hand corner. Here you can manually refresh the clock on that device by pressing "synch date and time."

 

For a vacation home, or if you want to guarantee rapid recovery no matter what, then you can install an Avi-on Remote Access Bridge.  The Bridge will be available in 2016.
