Apple device users can customize smart device scenarios using iOS shortcuts. Depending on the user’s location, the time of receiving a message from the selected interlocutor, and other factors, the device will turn on/off or change modes based on a timer.

This guide will help you set up automation based on your location. For example, the automatic switching on a smart lamp when returning home. Other scenarios are configured similarly.

Instructions for setting up the automatic activation of the device based on your geolocation

  1. Open the 2Smart Cloud app and select a device to manage, such as a Lamp.
