  10. 10. Rules Rules allow your home to truly automate itself. There are two types of rules, Timer and Event-based rules.
  11. 11. Timer Rules Timers allow you to set a schedule for a Scene to activate. These can be repeated Daily, Hourly, Weekly or Monthly.
  12. 12. Event Rules Event-based rules allow you to set up "If-Then"-type rules based on the state of the devices in your home. In this example, we setting a trigger for when our Smart Lock is Unlocked.

  14. 14. Event Rules Additionally we can add “When” constraints to only fire this rule at certain times or other devices are in a certain state.
