The Location and Modes Page is where you will set your geographic location, time zone, temperature scale and create your modes. This is the initial page you will see when you first register your hub

Location

To change your location, enter your postal code in the postal code field (A) and hit the tab key. This will auto populate the rest of your location information, including the sunset/sunrise times. You can pinpoint your exact location by moving the pin on the map or use the Satellite view in the upper left-hand corner of the map to give you a better visual for finding your home (B). The latitude and longitude coordinates will automatically change as you move the pin around.

  • NOTE: This is important for rules using geolocation.

Use can also enter your precise Latitude and Longitude as an alternate method to pinpoint your exact location (C).

When you are satisfied with your settings, press the Update button (D).
