Your dealer must add “Mockupancy” to your project for you first if you don’t already have it. Depending on the automation in your project, you can record lighting and media for playback. If your alarm panel is connected to your Control4 system, Mockupancy will automatically record the selected lights and media activity when the alarm is off or in stay mode. When the alarm is armed or in away mode, it will automatically playback activity that was recorded to simulate the property being occupied.
To manually record, stop or playback, tap the icon. The black square Mockupancy image indicates that it is stopped. There is nothing being recorded or playing back.
To record, tap the icon again and the red record symbol will appear indicating that your selected lighting and media is currently being recorded in the home. To be fully effective the app should be left to record for 7 days before playback. The minimum effective recording time is 24 hours.
When you’re away, tap the icon and the blue person symbol will appear indicating that your selected lighting and media is currently being played back in the home. If Control4 mockupancy is connected to your alarm panel, the status will change automatically when you disarm the alarm system upon your return home. Otherwise, be sure to turn this off manually by simply tapping the button to change the status back to record or stop.
