Introduction

This setting modifies AUTO Mode programming by creating a buffer for temperature and humidity triggers. This sets a different trigger-off point for the triggers, generating an on and off band that prevents the device from triggering too quickly from small climate fluctuations. You can set a buffer figure for temperature triggers, and a buffer figure for humidity triggers. The buffer figure affects high triggers differently than low triggers. On the controller, the buffer setting can be accessed by pressing the gear button until you reach buffer temperature and buffer humidity. This setting is only available on Smart Outlet Controllers.

 

Temperature Buffer (For High Temperature Triggers)

For High Temperature Triggers, this buffer figure will create a trigger-off point below your set trigger point. For example, if you had set a High Temperature Trigger at 80°F and set a Temperature Buffer at 6°F. Then your device will trigger on when it meets or rises above 80°F, and only trigger off when it falls below 74°F. The 74°F figure is obtained by taking your High Temperature Trigger of 80°F and subtracting your Temperature Buffer of 6°F.

Temperature Buffer (For Low Temperature Triggers)

For Low Temperature Triggers, this buffer figure will create a trigger-off point above your set trigger point. For example, if you had set the Low Temperature Trigger at 50°F and set the Temperature Buffer at 4°F. Then your device will trigger on when it meets or falls below 50°F, and only trigger off when it rises above 54°F. The 54°F figure is obtained by taking your Low Temperature Trigger of 50°F and adding your temperature buffer of 4°F.

Humidity Buffer (For High Humidity Triggers)

For High Humidity Triggers, this buffer figure will create a trigger-off point below your set trigger point. For example, if you had set a High Humidity Trigger at 70% and set a Humidity Buffer at 4%. Then your device will trigger on when it meets or rises above 70%, and only trigger off when it falls below 66%. The 66% figure is obtained by taking your High Humidity Trigger of 70% and subtracting your Humidity Buffer of 4%.

Humidity Buffer (For Low Humidity Triggers)

For Low Humidity Triggers, this buffer figure will create a trigger-off point above your set trigger point. For example, if you had set the Low Buffer Trigger at 40% and set the Humidity Buffer at 6%. Then your device will trigger on when it meets or falls below 40%, and only trigger off when it rises above 46%. The 46%F figure is obtained by taking your Low Humidity Trigger of 40% and adding your humidity buffer of 6%.
