The MiOS app for iOS comes with a redesigned scene creation flow named Meshbot, for a better user experience.

A Meshbot is an application within the MiOS operating system, which is part of the Ezlo platform, that allows you to automate tasks in your smart home or work environment using 'If-Then' rules. These rules define what happens when a specific trigger event occurs. Meshbots can control smart devices, send notifications, integrate with cloud services, and more, offering a high level of customization and automation for your property.

The iOS MiOS app is compatible with all the Ezlo Hubs.

This guide will teach you:

Meshbots overview

You have to tap on the MeshBots menu entry and then on "+" to create a new MeshBot.

Steps:

  1. You have the “MeshBots” button in the bottom part of the screen. 
  2. You can add a new MeshBot by tapping on the upper right corner "+" button.
  3. The back arrow "<" located in the upper-left corner will allow you to exit the MeshBot creation flow. When "<" is tapped you will see a prompt to confirm you want to exit the MeshBot creation flow and nothing will be saved.

You'll be able to write here the MeshBot name. It must be between 1 and 30 characters and naming a MeshBot is mandatory.

Assign the Meshbot to an existing room

This section has 2 states:

  • A room is selected → Room name (Bedroom, Living room, etc)

When you tap on the room name you will see a screen that allows you to select a room. Selecting a room is not mandatory.

Activation event - when do you want your MeshBot to be activated?

Selecting an event is not mandatory, if you want a manually triggered MeshBot.

When you tap on "Add event" under “Activation event” you will see a new screen to select your MeshBot trigger, it could be based on a “Device”, “Date and Time”, or “Add a group of events”.

If you select a device you will be sent to the next screen, where the list of possible events is presented. You can select one event at a time. The first event will be selected by default.
