Introduction: Our application offers two ways to program your thermostat; schedules and rules.
Schedules, like for most thermostats, allow you to adjust the heat or cool set point, the temperature your unit will heat or cool to. This will only happen if your thermostat is in the same mode as your scheduled set point. If you have a schedule to change the heat set point and you are in OFF or COOL mode at the scheduled time, it will not make the change.
Rules, allow you explicitly change mode between Off, Cool and Heat. They also allow you to change the set point, which, like schedules, will happen only when you are in that mode.
Step 1: On your app or any web browser, go to https://app.presencepro.com/signin.html to sign in to your Presence account by entering your Presence account email address and password. Then click ‘Sign In.'
Step 2: You will land on the Presence home screen. Click on ‘Cameras & Devices.'
Step 3: You will land on the ‘Cameras & Devices’ page. Scroll down until you find your ‘Presence Thermostat.' Please note that you may have changed the name of the ‘Presence Thermostat’ to some other name like ‘Great Room Thermostat’ or ‘Downstairs Thermostat.' When you find the thermostat, click on it.
Step 4: You will land on your thermostat control page. Click on ‘Schedule.'
Step 5: You will land on the thermostat schedule page. To begin, select "Add."
Step 6: You will land on the thermostat schedule page. You can add as many ‘schedules’ as you like per day. Select the mode (Cool or Heat), set point, days and time for this schedule and save.
Repeat steps 5 and 6 to create as many schedules as you like for the ultimate HVAC system schedule.
The Rules page you can create actions that affect your thermostat. Here you can have actions of the thermostat effect other devices or have other devices effect the thermostat.
One of the more commonly used rules for thermostats is:
If the time is 10 am on Monday then tell my thermostat to switch to heat. This differs from a schedule, whereas a schedule changes the heating point a rule can switch modes or change a heating point.
IMPORTANT: If you want the heat to turn OFF, you need to create another rule to switch the HVAC mode to OFF at a later time, or the HEAT mode will remain on. Same goes for cooling, if you are in Cool on the target day and time, then create another rule to turn Cool OFF if that is what you desire.
