Chapter 2. Using Remote

Remote provides a live display of Power Manager on your Mac. What you see and do on Remote is synchronised immediately with your Mac.

Once connected to a Mac, Remote displays a series of views showing different aspects of Power Manager. These views are listed at the bottom of the screen as tabs.

The views include:

  • Scheduler
  • Events
  • Notifications
  • Legal
  • About

Tap on a view's name and icon to change to that view.

Scheduler

The Scheduler view presents an insight into Power Manager's scheduling state. The view is live and will automatically update as events are triggered and perform.
