Scheduling an Activity to start or end

Harmony remotes allow you to schedule turning on or off activities at specific times. This feature allows you to automatically turn on an Activity during the evening when you are home or to turn off an Activity at night when it is time for bed.

If you have not created any activities see: How to create a Harmony Activity


Harmony supports various scheduling options. You can:
  • Start or End an Activity at a specific time.
  • Start or End an Activity at Sunset.
  • Start or End an Activity at Sunrise.
  • Start or End an Activity on a specific day of the week.
