To create rules, tap the hamburger icon in the top left corner, then tap on “Create Rules.”
Tap “Add Rule.”
You will now see a screen with “If This then That.”
Follow the instructions by clicking on the green “This” button.
Depending on what devices have been added to your MyPlace app, you will be able to select conditions for the “This” part of the rule statement that apply to certain devices. Select the “That” green button and choose the action you want the device to perform based on conditions previously set in the “This” part of the rules statement.
Note: You have the option to turn rules On or Off, or click on the specific rule and change the conditions within the If This Then That format as shown earlier.
