Configure Scene Linkage

Last Updated on : 2024-06-24 09:26:55download

You can specify data points (DPs) that can work as trigger conditions, status conditions, or bulk on/off, and run tasks.

After you add scene linkage, users can configure smart scenes on the app. For example, users can set up a smart scene like this: When a smart door lock is unlocked, the entryway light turns on.

Key settings

Key setting Description
Trigger condition Set an action or state of a device to be a condition that triggers scene linkage. For example, the On or Off state of a switch DP for a power switch or a temperature value of a temperature DP can be specified as a trigger condition.
Status condition (act as the validity scope) Set a state of a device to be a supplementary condition that triggers scene linkage.
Task Set an action to be a task that the system runs after scene linkage is triggered. For example, turning the power on or off can be specified as a task.
Bulk on/off operation Turn on or off the bulk on/off operation feature when you configure a task. With this feature enabled, devices can be controlled in bulk. The bulk on/off operation currently supports electrical and lighting products only.

Expected result

Take a smart robot vacuum for example and configure the following scene linkage:

  • Condition: If the power switch of a robot vacuum is in the Off state

  • Status Condition: and the sweep area is less than 0 m2,

  • Task: run the task that sets the power switch to the On state.

    In this example, a power switch state is used to set the trigger condition and turning the power switch on is specified as the task.
