Build 3.0 | 9th november 2022

In this update to the Pulse 2 app, we have re-designed the App to easily operate or personalise the daily routine of your shades with the introduction of quick access “Tiles”

Operation of Tiles

Simply tap the tile, and the shade will move;

  • If the shade is closed and the tile is grey, one tap will open it. If the shade is open and the tile is white and one tap, it will close. If the shade is not moving in the intended direction, touching the tile again will activate shade movement in the opposite direction.
  • If the shade is slightly open, the “smart prediction” will be activated, meaning with one simple tap of the tile, the shade will open or close based on the time of the day.
  • A long press on the tiles will open a secondary function for that tile.
  • Tiles feature haptic feedback, so you know with a slight vibration if you have opened or closed the shade.

 

Bi-directional feedback

  • White tiles indicate the shade is open or partially open and a grey tile indicates the tile is closed.

 

Shade Health

  • We have also introduced shade health which lets you see all the shades on one screen, displaying signal strength and battery percentage.
  • Shade tiles anywhere through the app also include a health status indicator, red meaning the battery is below 30% or the signal strength is poor, and green signifying all is ok.

Scenes Timers and Rooms

  • Every screen has been redesigned with a fresh new look, including a new way to do everything that is so intuitive you have to try it.
