Modes are pre-determined settings for your home, based on four scenarios: Home, away, night and vacation. You can control what mode your house is set to from the dashboard or from your mode switch.
To edit how you want your house to act in the different scenarios, go to "settings → modes & shortcuts" and click on the mode you want to edit.
Home- and away-mode
Home is the mode that is recommended when someone is home and awake. The safety function will not warn you if movement is detected or something is opened while your house is in home mode.
Away mode is for when you are not home for a short period of time. All automations will still be running when your home is set to away. You will also be notified if motion is detected or if any doors or windows are opened.
Night mode is for when you go to sleep for the night. Normally this will make your lights turn off, and appliances, locks and climate is set to your preferences for night mode. Automations combined with night mode are also handy, as you can for example turn on lights to 15% if motion is detected.
Vacation mode is for when you are not home for a longer period of time. Time based triggers for changing modes will not be running it this mode. Normal custom triggers will still be running, so that you can water your garden or simulate lighting in your home while you are away. You will be notified about all activity in your home in this mode.
Shortcuts are personalized actions that you can run from the dashboard or from widgets.
A shortcut can, for example, be called "movie". You can then turn off all lights, adjust the temperature, and close the blinds by pressing on a single shortcut.
You can view your shortcuts by swiping up from the dashboard.
