Hi Pele,

I don't use Home Automatioon, but I do use Hive and find it very accessible
in regular Android.  It should work just as well with Kapsys, though I
haven't tried it.

All the best

Hi Everyone

I have been trying to use the demo of Inspire Home Smart Automation heating
control on my Kapsys phone. I am finding it quite difficult to set the
different times. Does anyone have any tips?

I can set it to start at a particular time, but can't see where to set the

I can not see where to set it to stop or turn the thermostat down.

Also, how does the Inspire Home Automation system compare with the Hive
system? Is it easier to set the programs?

It is not possible to set the Inspire Home Automation programs using Alexa.
Is this possible with Hive?

I have looked at various user guides but am rather stuck. Are there any
tutorials or podcasts?
