For the Razberry:

To create a scene in the Razberry Smarthome UI you have to select the menu point ‘Apps’. You can filter all apps to see only scenes by selecting “Scenes” in the footer. In this example a light scene is created. First you have to name the scene and you can also add a description.

The next step is to select all the devices you want to control with the scene. Here you can control switches and dimmers to turn light on or off and dim them. It’s possible to activate other scenes, too.

For the Fibaro Home Center:

Scenes in the Home Center can be created by going to the ‘Scenes’ tab. Here you can click ‘Add Scene’ and select one of three scene creation methods. Every method has it’s own complexity. Since ‘Magic Scenes’ are easy to use and provide a good level of control they will be used in this tutorial. If you have advanced knowledge of programming or want more possibilities you can use LUA scenes and block scenes. The first step is to select the device that you want to serve as trigger. Simply drag and drop the device into the ‘if’ field and click ‘Next’. Now you can select what state of the device should trigger the scene.

In the next step you have to select which device you want to control with the scene. In the advanced scenes you can control multiple devices with one scene. As before just drag and drop the device into the ‘then’ field and select which action should be performed. At the end you can name the scene and finish the setup. Now your Home Center will activate the scene whenever the condition is met.

For the Hauppauge/Zippato:

On the right side of the screen you will find all the elements you need to create scenes. Start by dragging the condition of your choice mid of the UI.

Depending on what type of device you want to use as trigger you have to add either a sensor or a meter to the top of the condition. Add an action inside the condition to declare which action should be performed on the specified device when the condition is met. Pull the device into the action and select what command should be send.

Here a motion sensor is set to toggle a power switch whenever it detects a motion. You can add functionality to the scenes as you please

For the Vera:

Go to the ‘Scenes’ tab on the left and add a new scene. In the first step you are asked to select a trigger for the scene. Select any device you have and the value or state at which the scene will be triggered.

After selecting the trigger you need to add actions to the scene that are performed when the scene is triggered. You can add as many actions as you want and even delay them.

In the last step you just have to name the scene and specify under what circumstances the scene will be active.
