SimpleCommands has a new look! Now control your digital life with our more intuitive and easy to use interface on both your phone and watch. With Fast Pass controllers, it will only take you a few taps to turn on your lights, heat up your bedroom before going to bed, or close the garage door (and more)! This post will help walk you through all of the features in the update. If you're the type who likes to learn something on your own, get tapping! Explore the interactive design and maybe suggest a new connection so we can make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

For the basics on how to get set up with SimpleCommands, please refer to these articles before continuing on here. Things will make more sense if you can follow along on your account!

Fast Pass Controllers:

Fast Pass controllers are the easiest way to access your digital life. They automatically organize all of your Items by type (thermostats, lights/switches/cars, etc.) and allow you to send commands to your Items with just a tap of the finger. Each controller is brand agnostic, meaning you can control all of your similar devices from a single screen without worrying about compatibility.


The orange box (or blue depending if your thermostat is heating or cooling) shows each of your thermostat's set point. Use the up and down arrows on the right to adjust this to heat and cool your home! Tap individual thermostats to expand their cell and change the mode between heat, cool, and heat-cool.

Lights and Switches:

The power button on the right shows the current status of the bulb/switch (green for on, black for off). Tap individual lights to adjust brightness and color (if available)!

Doors and Locks:

This one is very simple, just press the arrow on the right to open/unlock and close/lock your doors/locks!


The irrigation controller shows your central sprinkler controller, sprinkler zones, and custom sprinkler rules. Adjust the time on individual zones with the up and down arrows and hit run or start the zone or schedule!


In the default view you can see each of your cars' current locations and gas level (if available). Tap individual thermostats to see a summary or your recent trips and the quality of driving!
