Configuring your Enercare Smarter Home light switches

With Enercare's Smarter Home light switches, you can program your lights to be on when you arrive home and turn them off when you go to bed just by using the Smarter Home mobile or desktop app.

Configuring your Enercare Smarter Home light switches:

  1. Log into the Enercare Smarter Home Portal app
  2. From the home screen select the card called “Lights” by clicking on the right arrow

  3. This leads to the "Lights" pages which has three sub-tabs - “Device”, “Rules” and “Schedules

    1. Device Tab: The device tab lists every smart light in the home. Each smart light will have its own tile where users are able to click on the specific light you want to turn on or off. 

    2. Rules Tab: The rules tab lists out all the rules that users have set up. Rules are triggered by a specific event in the home, for example, users can turn on the kitchen light once the front door is unlocked, or turn on the porch lights if motion is sensed, etc. 

    3. Schedule Tab:  Schedules will automate when to turn on or off the lights according to the settings the user inputs. 
       

To set up a new rule:

  1. Log into the Enercare Smarter Home Portal app

  2. From the home screen select the card called “Lights” by clicking on the right arrow at the top

  3. Select "Rules" at the top of the page

  4. Select "+ Add New Rule” button at the top right

  5. Enter the name of the new rule 

  6. Select the “Lights” radio button to automate the lights

  7. Select when the event should occur, either “Sensor Activity” or “Door Bell Camera”. "Sensor Activity" is triggered when a sensor becomes active, for example, if the front door opens, or if the living room detects motion. "Door Bell Camera" is triggered if the user wants the lights to come when the doorbell is either pressed or detects motion.

  8. Select if the light should turn on or off and the time frame

  9. Select which specific light the rule should be applied to by checking all check boxes that apply

  10. Select when the rule should be active, either at all times, or users can outline specific times of the week

  11. Press "Save" to save the rule

 

To create a new schedule:

  1. Log into the Enercare Smarter Home Portal app

  2. From the home screen select the card called “Lights” by clicking on the right arrow at the top

  3. Select "Schedules" at the top of the page

  4. Select "+ Add New Schedule

  5. Enter the schedule’s name
  6. Select which devices the schedule applies to, for example, front light or office, etc.
  7. Select which days of the week the schedule should run
  8. Select if the lights should turn on or off and at which time of day
