Simply choose the room for which you would like this Timed Event associated and at the bottom of the page you will see a drop down menu of all of the device in your system.  Choose the device you want to activate and then chose the command you would like to issue that device.  After adding this event, click Update to save the information.

If you would like to use this event as an alarm clock, choose what rooms this event should act as an alarm clock in. It will appear on the Orbiters' sleeping menu and you can turn the alarm on or off. Please note that currently, this function is only available via UI1 as there is no sleeping menu accessible on UI2.

This menu becomes available only after you have added the first Timed Event, but it does give you access to some predefined events that you can edit.

Take the example of Sunset.  By clicking the commands text, you can now associate any device with this Timed Event.  After adding the device, you will receive a drop down menu with commands to issue this device.  This allows you to customize your system to your liking.

Please note that testing any advanced event will likely result in their deletion. This is a bug currently.
