Adding/Editing and Removing a Policy
To add a policy first give a name to the policy you want to implement in the first box. Directly below you can select the policy type; the drop down options consist of “Time”; which will enact the policy every day at that recurring time slot and “Time and Date”; which gives the additional option of a start date for the policy.
Depending on which Policy Type selected, there will be a menu in which to select a start time and an end time for the policy, or additionally a Start Date option. Scroll and select desired time period for your policy.
Now that the time period in which the policy is established you can select the details.
In order to set a policy you must first put in a setting to revert back to when the policy time period expires. This is reflected in the LIGHT DEFAULT option where you set the light level from 0-100%. After the time period in which the policy course has run the light levels will return to this setting, unless there is another policy that will be enacted. After this you can set the policy.
There will be a DIM LEVEL scale in which you can select the light level from 0% (off) to 100% (full brightness).
Below this there will be a MOTION LOCKED title with a checkable box next to it. If motion sensors are incorporated into the clusters design you can unlock the option by clicking the checked box. This will give you the option to turn on the motion sensing ability of the cluster that will trigger the cluster to revert to the default light settings
There will be a checked box labeled NO COLOR TUNE. If color tuning is a feature of the cluster click the box in order to unlock the color tuning policy settings. Similarly to the dimming settings there will be scale ranging from 3000K (warmest) to 5000K (coolest); in which you can select the lighting temperature to set for the policy.
Below this DAYS OF WEEK allows the user to select which recurring days the policy will be enacted. There is a select all option and each individual day of the week with boxes. By selecting the boxes next to the day the user is selecting that day for the policy. By checking SELECT ALL the policy will be run regardless of the day. There will be an option to SAVE your policy below this to lock in these settings.
To view or edit an already existing policy simply select a developed policy from the right of the screen and edited as you would in the development of a new policy.
To remove a previously developed policy simply select one of the established policies and where there was the option to SAVE the policy there is also the option to REMOVE which will delete the policy confirmed by an alert confirming “Successfully Removed Policy” in the upper right corner.
*Merge Policy *
In order for the users policy to be applied to a cluster they must be merged. To do this first scroll to the drop down to the left and select the* MERGE POLICY* tab. There will be a tab of folders that show all linked clusters. By selecting desired cluster(s) from this area they will automatically populate to the tab located below LINK POLICY TO CLUSTER in the center of the screen. There will also be a CLUSTER title below which you can select your desired cluster.
Once the desired cluster has populated the CLUSTER space you have the similar option of selecting the *POLICY * drop down to choose a policy or selecting one from the list of policies to the right of the screen.
After both are selected click the blue Link button to implement the policy to the cluster. A blue box with the policy name and the recurrence (date, timed, daily etc.) will be placed on the grey “shelf” below, confirming the activation of the policy for the cluster. You can select multiple policies for a single cluster, however if the policies time frames overlap you will be prompted in the right hand corner with a FAILED Policy Overlap symbol, preventing the policy from being initiated.As long as there are no conflicting policies you can add as many policies for a cluster as desired.
To remove a policy from a cluster simply select the cluster, view the policy to be deleted on the “shelf” and select the “X” in the right corner of the box when the cursor is scrolled over it. Note that if a policy is currently activated, you must wait for the policy to be over or edit the policy so that it is no longer in effect in order to delete the policy from the cluster.
