A schedule has two types of events: weekly events and exception events. Weekly events occur every week at specified times. Exception events occur when the schedule deviates from the weekly schedule, such as during holidays. Exception events override the weekly events when there is an overlap.
Each schedule has a default value. The default value goes into effect after the exception events and weekly events are complete or relinquish control. For more information, see Viewing a Schedule Default Value .
For example, the weekly event for a fan ends at 17:00. The fan ran at a value of 3 (high) throughout the event. There are no scheduled events after the weekly event. Because you have assigned 0 as the default value, the fan adjusts to the default value and turns to 0 (off). The value remains at 0 until the next scheduled event.
Events occur in the following order of precedence:
For example, the weekly event for a fan is set to On from '08:00 - 20:00'. An exception event is set to Off from '17:00 - 20:00' for a specifc date. The exception event overrides the weekly event so that the fan only runs from 08:00 to 17:00 on the specified date.
A weekly event occurs every week for an extended period of time. You can schedule more than one weekly event for each day of the week.

An exception event occurs instead of the scheduled weekly events for a single date, date range, or calculated date.

A schedule has a color code so you can identify weekly events and exception events at a glance. This color code can assist you when you are modifying your schedule or trying to troubleshoot any problems.
