Control Shortcuts for Physical Things

Control Shortcuts

1. Creating Thing control short-cuts on your Dashboard: 

The Shortcuts panel is the area that allows you to create shortcuts to Physical Things you access frequently. This is the first area you will see on your Dashboard. These are Things like lights, cameras, music players, and more. Once added, you can tap on a shortcut to control that Thing – such as turning a light on or off, arming a camera, or playing music. This allows you quick access and control to your favorite Things without having to jump from app to app.
