During this period, please avoid using the remote control, or the APP to control the home appliance you’ve set a schedule; because when you set the schedule and then immediately control it, the status of the schedule may be wrong. In addition, when you set the i-Ctrl’s schedule and the air-conditioner’s timer at same time, the schedule function must be different from the state you expected, because the current air-conditioner itself does not have a feedback mechanism, so the schedule will be affected. Therefore, to have better experience, please avoid using the original remote control or the APP to control, and also avoid the devices’timer function when i-Ctrl is scheuled.
