Scenes: Create timers


Turn lights on and off according to a schedule, or based on local sunrise/sunset times. Timers can control any device — lock doors at night, set thermostat schedule, close garage door in the evening.

This guide will teach you how to:

  • Create a basic timer for your light switch

Create a timer:

  • Select Scenes on the Dashboard app and then click + Add Scene


  • Under Step 1: Select a Trigger choose Schedule
  • Select Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Once (one-time)
  • Select day, date, and time of day, sunrise, sunset etc. as needed
  • Click Validate


  • Click Next Step


  • Select Device you want to have triggered (such as light, door lock, etc.)
  • Click Next


  • Select what the device should do when triggered (such as on, off, unlock, etc. depending on the device)
  • Click Validate


  • Click Next Step


  • In Step 3 (Finish the Scene) you can modify which modes the timer will run in (default is all modes) and whether a notification should go out. You can leave these settings unchanged.
Tip: Add delayed action to turn OFF the light a few minutes/hours later.


  • Scroll down to the bottom to Name Your Scene and make up a name (such as "Sunset Lights ON" to shut the light off every night at the same time)
  • Click Finish

You are finished and can go back to the main Dashboard screen.
