Create groups and group schedules

Hi. Previous house had a Hive thermostat and one of the great things was to be able to set a vacation period.

You would set an away time and date and temperature and a return time and date.

For example you might set all devices to 14C for the week you are away and it returns them to the programmed schedule at the time/date you have set for your return.

Geofencing is not really applicable. I believe this is for when the house is empty for short periods such as people at work and you would not set the temperature that low as it would take too long to get back to a reasonable temperature.

At the moment I have 8 thermostats that I would manually have to change the schedule and then rechange the schedule on return and that would be a complete pain.

Effectively a simple routine with a time/date/temp for all devices while away and a time/date for return when all the devices will readjust to their programmed schedule.

Hope that makes sense and happy to answer any questions!

    Hello @nlh,

    Thank you for the suggestion 🙂 It's been noted and will be considered during our next product planning meeting.

    @nlh Your fourth paragraph doesn't really hold water for me. How can it be too long for long periods and not for short. People (and this person) have used GeoF for years for hols with great success - works absolutely fine!
