Makes it possible to group devices allowing control and reporting of all devices within a group.

With this app you can group devices with the same capabilities as one device. 1. After installing, to add a new Group, click + (add) upon the devices tab select “< group >”. 2. Now select the group device’s class. (e.g. Light). 3. You will now see all the capabilities supported by this class. Chose the ones you need. (e.g. Turned on" and “Dim level”, “Temperature” ). 4. Displayed upon the next page are all devices that have all the capabilities you selected, simply select the devices you want to group. 5. On the final page you change change the icon of the device if you would like, or select next to use the default < group > icon. 6. Now you have one device to control all the grouped devices. Settings There are two sets of settings associated with device groups, first the settings are available from the group, which offers overview information only.The second more important method can be accessed from the application settings, [More -> Settings -> < group >] From with in the settings you can not only update which devices are in which groups, but you also have much more control on how the group will report information back to you. For example, should a group which consists of contact sensors trigger when one contact sensor alarms or when all of them do? Or perhaps you would like a group of temperature sensors to show the minimum value rather then the average. Open up the settings, click upon the group category (eg. sensor or light) all the groups of that type will show. Click upon the group you would like to edit.
