If you arrive home earlier than expected on a cold winter day, OR travel somewhere for the weekend, OR go on holiday for two weeks, the normal weekly program can easily be changed temporarily. This is called an override.
An override interrupts the normal weekly program, replacing it with the selected status “COMFORT”, “ECO” or “AWAY” for a limited time.
Nobø Energy Control has four types of overrides: CONSTANT, NOW, FROM-TO, and TIMER.
A CONSTANT override lasts until you choose to stop it manually. The override is useful if the time for return to Normal status is uncertain.
A NOW-override lasts until there is to be a status change in the Normal weekly program. If the override applies to more than one zone, all zones must have a status change in the weekly program before the override is terminated. The system then automatically returns to Normal status. In the case of a weekly program with no daily status changes, a NOW-override is terminated at 3AM.
A FROM-TO override allows you to select date and time for when the override starts and stops.
A TIMER-override lasts the number of days and hours selected. Default TIMER duration is 2 days (48 hours) unless you change it.
Simple global overrides
In the HOME screen, the circle menu allows you to override all your zones to any status “COMFORT”, “ECO”, or “AWAY” for a limited time. You can terminate an override at any time by pressing “Normal” at the centre of the circle.
A single tap on ”COMFORT” starts a NOW-override. The Normal weekly program is put on hold, and all zones change to COMFORT status. The override is terminated automatically when all the zones have changed status once. In the case of a weekly program with no status changes, the NOW-override is terminated at 3AM. When the zones have changed back to Normal, the centre of the circle menu will turn green.
An override can be terminated at any time by pressing Normal or a different override.
COMFORT-override is useful if you come home
early on a cold day, and need to turn up the heat ahead of schedule.
A single tap on ”ECO” starts a NOW-override. The Normal weekly program is put on hold, and all zones change to ECO status. The override is terminated automatically when all the zones have changed status once. In the case of a weekly program with no status changes, the NOW-override is terminated at 3AM. When the zones have changed back to Normal, the centre of the circle menu will turn green.
An override can be terminated at any time by pressing Normal or by pressing a different override.
ECO-override is useful if you go to bed early
and need less heat for the remainder of the evening. Other uses are when you
leave the house for a few hours and don’t need the heat on COMFORT level.
A single tap on “AWAY” starts a TIMER override.
The Normal weekly program is put on hold, and all zones change to AWAY status.
AWAY override is useful when you leave the house for 2 days or more. Default
AWAY override duration is 2 days (48 hours), before all zones return to Normal.
The default AWAY override duration can be changed in the SETTINGS menu.
Advanced global overrides
To enter advanced override options, press and hold the preferred status, Comfort, Eco or Away, in the Circle menu. Or when an override is already running, press the banner above the Circle for advanced options.
Four kinds of overrides are available in the advanced menu: CONSTANT, NOW, FROM-TO, and TIMER.
A FROM-TO override is defined by entering time and date for start and stop. A TIMER override is defined by entering its duration in days and hours.
Local zone overrides
Overriding a single zone can be done in the zones view.
Local zone overrides are not affected by global overrides activated in the circle menu.
Simple zone overrides
Tap the left icon once to start a simple NOW-override for the zone.
If the current status for the zone is Eco, Away or Off, the simple override changes the status to Comfort. If the current status is Comfort, the simple override changes the status to Eco. The icon changes appearance when an override is active, so that overridden zones are easily spotted in the list.
Tap the icon again to terminate the zone override.
A NOW-override is terminated automatically upon the next event in the weekly program, or at 0300 (3 AM).
If one or more local zone overrides are active, a banner is displayed on the home screen. Tap the banner to terminate all local zone overrides.
Advanced zone overrides
Long press the left icon to enter the advanced zone override menu. Select the preferred status and type of override (CONSTANT, NOW, TIMER or FROM-TO).
To terminate the override, tap the left icon once. Alternatively, tap the banner in the home screen.
