Once you get some devices connected, you’ll want to start automating them. Hubitat Elevation™ include several build-in apps for building rules that let you create both simple and complex automations. Selecting the right app for the automation you are creating can make building your rules faster and easier. These built-in apps include:

Simple Lighting - ideal for most simple automations that turn lights on or off using a trigger such as a contact sensor, mode or a specific time.

Motion Lighting - this streamlined app lets you set dim levels, delays and a host of other options for your motion-activated lighting.

Hubitat™ Safety Monitor - Set intrusion alarms or automatic alerts for things such as smoke, CO2 or waker leaks.

Rule Machine® - For more complex rules with multiple conditions and devices, Rule Machine® lets you create almost any automation you desire.
