Scenes are only supported by Smappee Energy, Solar, Plus and Pro and can only be used in combination with the Smappee Comfort plug and Switch.
The Smappee Genius uses a updated version of scenes called "Automations", more on this can be found here.
What is a scene?
A scene allows you to control the Smappee Smartplugs based on certain types of triggers.
Scenes can be created/editted via the "Control" section in the App.
The following triggers are supported:t
Activity in the building
Smappee tries to determine if there is any activity in the building by monitoring the consumption.
As soon as movement in the consumption is detected, the scene is triggered.
The mobile App uses the GPS data of the Smartphone detect if the Smartphone enters or leaves a predefined area. Depending on what was chosen the scene will trigger when the Smartphone enters/leaves the area.
Active energy use
The scene is triggered when the Smappee is measuring a certain amount of Consumption or Production above or below a certain threshold. The check is done on the live data but it can take up to 2 minutes untill the scene is triggered.
For Example if you set the threshold of the consumption to 60W, then the power needs to be 60W for at least a minute before the scene is triggered.
The scene is triggered according to Sunset and Sunrise times.
The scene is triggered according to a predefined time
Similar to the "Active energy use" scenes, the Import/Export scene will monitor the measured Import/Export.
The scene is triggered when the Smappee is measuring a certain amount of Import or Export above or below a certain threshold. The check is done on the live data but it can take up to 2 minutes until the scene is triggered.
