You can quickly control multiple types of devices with a single button by creating a scene. With a scene, you can lock your doors, turn off the lights and ensure the garage door is closed with a single tap from Dashboard. Scenes can also be controlled using Siri.

In a Custom Scene, you can tap each individual device and customize how it will behave when the scene is activated.
