How to add a Companion (or two)


Fast Pass Controllers:

Fast Pass controllers are the easiest way to access your digital life. They automatically organize all of your Items by type (thermostats, lights/switches/cars, etc.) and allow you to send commands to your Items with just a tap of the finger. Each controller is brand agnostic, meaning you can control all of your similar devices from a single screen without worrying about compatibility.




The orange box (or blue depending if your thermostat is heating or cooling) shows each of your thermostat's set point. Use the up and down arrows on the right to adjust this to heat and cool your home! Tap individual thermostats to expand their cell and change the mode between heat, cool, and heat-cool.

Lights, Switches, and Plugs:


The power button on the right shows the current status of the bulb/switch (green for on, black for off). Tap individual thermostats to adjust brightness and color (if available)!

Doors and Locks:

This one is very simple, just press the arrow on the right to open/unlock and close/lock your doors/locks!


Check the status of sensors to check in on the state of your home!
