Watch in this video how you can install the Hombli Smart Socket.

How can I automate the Hombli Smart Socket?

There are three methods to automate a Hombli Smart Socket.

  1. With a Timer
  2. With a Schedule
  3. With an Automatic Scenario

To explain how these methods, work we use the Hombli Smart Socket DUO as an example. In general, the installation processes are the same for all other Hombli products, but the interface may differ.

Timer

To set a timer for your device, you must select the device on the main screen of the app and choose “Timer”. When the timer ends it will change the socket’s mode. If the socket was on when the timer was set, it will turn off when the timer ends. If the socket was off, it will switch on afterward.

  1. Choose “Timer”.
  2. Select the socket for which you want to set a timer.
  3. Set when the timer should end and tap “Confirm”.

Schedule

The Hombli Smart Socket can be switched on or off at fixed times by setting up a schedule.

  1. Choose “Schedule”.
  2. Tap “Add” to add a schedule.
  3. On this screen, you can choose the (type of) action, at what time it should take place, and how often it should be repeated.
  4. Choose if you want to receive a notification when the task is completed.
  5. After entering all the settings, press “Save” to save the schedule.

Automatic Scenario

With an automatic scenario, actions can be automatically executed when certain conditions are met. Conditions can be:

  • A camera that detects movement.
  • A heat sensor that measures a certain temperature.
  • Certain weather conditions
  • Sunrise or sunset

Follow these steps to set up an automatic scenario.

  1. Go to the main screen of the Hombli app and tap “Scenario” at the bottom.
  2. Choose “Automatic” and tap “Add automatic scenario”.
  3. Here you can specify the conditions for the scenario. You can set up an automatic scenario in 3 steps.
    1. Choose the conditions for when the action should be performed.
    2. Choose which actions must be executed.
    3. Name your automatic scenario and personalize it with a color and an image.

Can I switch the Smart Socket on/off without using the app?

You can manually turn the Hombli Smart Socket on/off by pressing the power button on the socket. If a socket is manually turned off with this button, it can still be turned on/off via the app.

Note: The Smart Socket DUO has buttons on both sides to control the two inputs individually.
