Building-specific settings

Building-specific settings allow you to set different settings for a certain group of devices while keeping your global settings unaffected. These settings range from the timezone and preferred time format to enabling/disabling individual features for your devices.

Keep in mind that device-specific settings will override any building settings you might have enabled. The number of buildings you can add depends on your subscription plan
