A Scene, what is that and why do I have to add one?

Adding a Scene provides you more comfort and at the same time you will be saving energy. It is up to you to make a Scene or not. A Scene ensures that several products automatically (at the same time) turns on or off, dimming lights or changing the temperature, whenever you want. You decide which products contribute to the Scene and when you switch the Scene on or off.
You can make as many as Scenes as you want and there are a lot of options to make the Scene personal.
