The basic premise of Rules is the automation of system’s control without human intervention, eliminating routine and repetitive activities while reacting to specific system events.

What Makes a Rule

You can think of Rules as a Condition/Action process where you’ll set the conditions to which a set of actions will respond when those conditions are met.

Rules can be as simple as setting a device to operate on a given schedule, to more complex situations where a industrial equipment is controlled based on multiple criteria.

This complexity is hidden from the user, who will only have to deal with the relevant options for the task at hand.

When creating or editing a Rule you will find a combination of Parameters, Devices, Actions and Scheduling. See Adding New Rules bellow to know more.

Rules Deployment

When Adding or Saving changes to any Rule, a process called “Rules Deployment” is initiated, showing a countdown at the top navigation bar. Once it reaches zero changes were transmitt2q1 ed to your local system. They now run independently from your system’s internet connection, staying in effect even when there’s no connection available.

Know more about the Deployment Process.

Editing Rules

To edit a Rule go to Control Center, navigate or search until you find the Rule to be edited and select it by clicking on it to open its View mode.

Rules with Parameters can be edited right in the View mode, allowing a faster interaction for common actions. The remaining configurations will be available in Editing mode which, as always, is triggered by pressing the Edit button at the end of the page.

Once your changes are complete, pressing Save will obviously save your work but also initiate the Rules Deployment process.

Rules Activity Logs

Every change to system Rules is recorded for later reference. This allows you analyze all changes submitted to a rule at any point, including the date, author and saved parameters for every Rule change along it’s lifespan.

You can filter the Rule Logs by Author, Dates and action type.
