This video will show you how to set up scenes using your Z-Wave enabled devices and the GC3 control panel. Follow along with the instructional video and turn your home into an automated smart home today!

To create a scene, press the Smart Homes Controls button on the bottom left of your touch screen home page. Form this screen you will have direct access to your Z-Wave devices such as light, locks and thermostats. Press the Scenes button as the video shows.

The video will assume that your Z-Wave devices are installed and included already. If they are not, please see our other videos to learn how to include and activate Z-Wave sensors.

Press the edit icon as shown in the video. If you already have a scene set up it will be listed on this menu page. Otherwise you will see only the add scene button. Press the button to add your scene.

The first prompt is to add a name for the scene you are creating. When you have finished press next on the touch screen. In the video example we will show you how to set up a night time scene that will turn on a night light, turn off a kitchen light and lock the front door.

Follow along with the video and press the edit icon in the top right corner. You will then click the add device icon and a drop down menu will appear showing you the available categories based on the connected devices in your home.

Select a category. In our example we show you how to choose the lighting category followed by the night light device and the kitchen light. Continue adding all the devices you need for your scene.

Once all of the devices have been added, you will need to tell the system what state they should be in when the scene is run. In our video we set the night light to bright and the kitchen light to off using the slider bars. We also set the front door lock to locked using the selection toggle.

When you are complete, press the left arrow button and then the done editing icon. The newly create scene will appear on the scene menu page and is ready to run.
