What are thresholds

There are numerous settings for the Breeze Pro that will impact when and how the Bond Bridge Pro will control the devices.

Priorities

Wind-->Rain-->Sun

Wind takes priority over all threshold triggers.  If the outdoor shutter is open because of a schedule and the threshold for wind is met, that will override the schedule and close the shutter.

Commands from the Bond Home application or Sidekick will override the Breeze Pro threshold settings.  If you set a wind threshold for 26 mph to close a shutter, pressing open in the Bond Home application will open the shutter even if the wind speed is above 26 mph.

Wind Detection

Setting the mph for wind speed will cause the Bond devices linked to the wind threshold to preform the action.  The action could be close or open depending on the device being controlled.

Notes on wind detection

  • If the wind threshold is met and the shutter is open it will close and not automatically open unless the wind is calm and there is a command from the Bond Home application or a scheduled event.
    • Schedules will not operate until 4 hours after the wind is calm.

Rain detection

There are no settings to control rain intensity for rain detection.  Turning it on will cause the linked Bond devices to perform their action.  A downpour should cause the trigger to operate in under 20 seconds.

  • When the sensor threshold triggers an event, the next scheduled event or integration action will not happen for 8 hours after the sensor detects no rain.

Sun detection

The sunlight threshold goes from 0 to 8.  Where 0 is dark and 8 is brightest sunlight.

  • When the sensor threshold triggers an event, the next scheduled event or integration action will not happen for 6 hours after the sensor detects no light.

Threshold values
0 - Dark
1 - Twilight  
2 - Deep Shade  
3 - Shade  
4 - Light Shade 
5 - Light Sunlight  
6 - Sunlight  
7 - Bright Sunlight
8 - Brightest Sunlight

Power failures and Breeze Pro reboots

The Breeze Pro threshold triggers (values that need to be met), will be set to idle.  This means they are at the non activated level.
