Creating Automation Events

An automation event consists of an action (or actions) that are set into motion by one or more triggers.

Example: Turning on lights at sunset. 

Trigger = sunset
Action = turning lights on

With HomeSeer, you can quickly and easily create the events you need. Here's how to create the sunset event above.
