If you want your Smart Vents to open or close at a specific time, use an extreme set point - or schedule very high/low set points at the times you want Vents to open/close.
Here are a few examples...
- You're having a big party in your home and you want to run the fan during the party and keep all Smart Vents open to improve circulation. If Mode is set to "Cool", then change your home set point to 50F to force Smart Vents to open. If Mode is set to "Heat", then change your home set point to 85F to force Smart Vents to open. Revert to your original home set point at the conclusion of the party.
- During the winter, you want Smart Vents in your bedrooms to open at 6:45AM and stay open until 7:30AM, then resume normal operation. If Mode is set to "Heat", then create a schedule with an event for each bedroom with Smart Vents:
6:45AM-7:30AM - Set Point 85F to force the Vents to open
- Let's say you run a bird sanctuary in Florida and are using the Smart Vent with an exterior circulation system. You want the Vent to be open at 7:00AM for 12 hours during the day to circulate airflow, then close at night. If Mode is set to "Cool", then create a schedule with two events for the room with the Smart Vent:
7:00AM-7:00PM - Set Point 50F to force Vent to open
7:00PM-7:00AM - Set Point 85F to force the Vent to close
