What is a Scene?

A scene is a predetermined shade level that you can create using the app and can do a scene for any number of rooms.

You can also have a setting just for the morning, so you get the exact amount of light to start your day. Create a scene for any number of reasons, like time of day, time of week, etc. And get the perfect lighting for your home 24/7!
