ECS Menus and Functions

The HOME screen in the Energy Control App is divided in two views: STATUS and ZONES. Swipe sideways to navigate between the views.
STATUS view (Circle menu) is the main control of your household, and shows active status. When the center of the circle is green, your home is in Normal status. This means all zones automatically follow their individual weekly programs. The Circle menu allows you to override your home to “COMFORT”, “ECO”, or “AWAY” when needed. The circle shows the active status in green. Note that these will override all heaters in your home. If you simply want to override one heater, see manual control programs.
You may want to turn on COMFORT mode if the whole family is at home unexpectedly. Every heater in the house will heat according to the COMFORT temperature assigned to that heater (the same is true for ECO mode). AWAY mode can be activated if you are going away for a short while, e.g. on holiday for the weekend.
Swiping left takes you to the ZONES view, listing all the zones in your home.
Tap a zone bar to display the system units within the zone. To enter the settings screen for a zone, tap the wrench icon.

Overrides overview
If you arrive home earlier than expected on a cold winter day, OR travel somewhere for the weekend, OR go on holiday for two weeks, the normal weekly program can easily be changed temporarily. This is called an override.
An override interrupts the normal weekly program, replacing it with the selected status “COMFORT”, “ECO” or “AWAY” for a limited time.
Energy Control System has four types of overrides: NOW, CONSTANT, FROM-TO, and TIMER. The below explains the different options available for overrides. To perform an override, you can choose either a simple override or advanced override.
Override: NOW: A NOW-override will last until there is a status change in the Normal weekly program. As the weekly program changes status, the override is terminated and the system returns automatically to Normal status. In the case of a weekly program with no status changes, a NOW-override is terminated at 3AM.
Override: CONSTANT: A CONSTANT override will last until you choose to stop it manually. The override is useful if the time for return to Normal status is uncertain.
Override: FROM-TO: A FROM-TO override allows you to select date and time for when the override starts and stops.
Override: TIMER: A TIMER-override lasts the number of days and hours selected. Default TIMER duration is 2 days (48 hours) unless you change it.

Zone settings
Press the wrench icon in the ZONES-view, to enter settings for a particular zone. The zone settings screen provides options for controlling the zone.

Weekly programs
All weekly programs can be altered to suit your needs, and new programs can be added.
Press the wrench under NORMAL WEEKLY PROGRAM options to edit weekly programs.
A weekly program consists of a 24 hour timeline for each day of the week. The timeline can be divided into periods. Each period is set to a selected status, COMFORT, ECO, AWAY or OFF.
