In Smart+, what is Cool Night Mode and how does it work?

If your home is getting warmer than you like it at night, you can switch on ‘Cool Night Mode’ via the Homely App.

With smart tariffs, energy can be cheaper at night, so Homely will often preheat your home during these times. If you’d prefer a cooler home at night, then turning on this feature will reduce the amount of preheating that occurs overnight.  However, doing so can reduce your savings potential, so you may find it beneficial to turn off bedroom radiators instead.

How does Cool Night Mode work?
The mode prevents your overnight room temperature from rising above the following morning's set temperature. For example, if your evening schedule finishes at 19 degrees at 23:00 pm and your schedule begins at 18 degrees at 08:00 am; Homely will not raise your temperature above 18 degrees between 23:00 pm - 08:00 am.
