The proper positioning

The installation site depends on the type of curtain. If the curtain is opaque, but lightly translucent, then you can aim HOMESHADOWS directly at the curtain. Should there be no curtain, or it is transparent, then direct HOMESHADOWS at the walls that are visible from the outside.

In principle, it is about making visible moving shadows to the outside and setting HOMESHADOWS in such a way that the device cannot be seen from the outside. This is best done with opaque, but translucent curtains or blinds.

In the case of opaque, but lightly translucent curtains or blinds, aim HOMESHADOWS directly at these objects.

For windows and doors without curtains or with transparent curtains, aim HOMESHADOWS with walls so that light and shadow can be seen from outside.

When setting up, make sure that the light sensor (2) on the back of HOMESHADOWS is not covered and that it is left at least 10 cm away from the surrounding objects and walls. In the AUTO mode, the light sensor recognises day and night cycles (2) and turns on the device automatically in darkness.
