TIMERS HOW DO THEY WORKS
In the EVE system you can create scheduled events throught the week timer and the week timer calendar components. This two component allow you to set any kind of scenario inside your home, for example turning on a light or increase the temperature of your radiators.
The week timer allow you to set and record particular scenarios. You can add as much week timers as you want but this component can’t work alone, week timer needs to be set with the component Week timer calendar.
We can explain this kind of component with an example like this: Pretend to have two different type of days, the working day that rappresent your tipical day, and the Traveling day when you are absent from your house more the one day. As you can see the week timer called Working has some differences from the week timer Traveling.
