Scenes (Lighting Scenes)

Use the Control4® system Navigators and select Scenes to view, create, and edit lighting moods for your home, for example, an indoor or outdoor 'Party' scene for entertaining, an 'All Lights Off' scene to execute at bedtime, or a 'Welcome Home' scene to open your garage and turn the walkway lights on. Your installer can help you figure out the best lighting scenes for your lifestyle.

Prerequisites

If you want to create or edit Lighting Scenes or use Scenes, ensure that either your installer has added the Lighting Scenes and Advanced Lighting Scenes agents to your Composer project. You can also use Composer HE to create, edit, rename, and delete lighting scenes.
