What happens if I create overlapping schedules for the same bulbs?

It is generally not recommended to create overlapping schedules for the same bulbs. The app will warn users if they create a schedule that overlaps, but will still execute it as programmed. The schedules will run independent of each other. The chart below shows how the app will handle scheduling conflicts depending on the situation. In these examples, S1 refers to the top line and S2 refers to the bottom line. 

 

       _______

               ______ 

S1 starts before S2 and ends before S2. In this case, any bulbs that are on both schedules will be turned off when S1 ends even when S2 was still active at that time. However, the color temperature and dim level of those bulbs will change to S2’s settings when S2 starts.

S1 starts before S2 and ends after S2. In this scenario, any bulbs that are on both schedules will be turned off when S2 ends even though S1 is still active at that time. The color temperature and dim level of those bulbs will change to S2’s settings when S2 starts.

S1 starts before S2 and both schedules end at the same time. In this scenario, when S2 starts, the color temperature and dim level settings will be changed to S2’s settings for those bulbs that are on both schedules.

                     ______ 

S2 starts at the same time as S1 ends. In this case, any bulbs that are on both schedules will remain on when S1 ends and change to S2’s color temperature and dim settings.

 

When a user uses the main control to turn the bulbs on again after they were turned off by any schedule, the bulbs will be turned on with the last dim and color temperature settings they had prior to being turned off.
