v5.5.2.52827 (June 30, 2020)

  • (New!) Added a new feature for motion sensing products to switch between normal on/off operation and customized Motion Response Schedules.

To enable this feature, go to the Room in the app with the motion sensor, click Room Motion Settings, and then enable the Motion Response Schedule and set your preferences.
