Away Mode is the system mode to use when the residents of the house will be gone for a prolonged length of time. Sleep Mode is a system mode that ignores all proactive and real-time checks and parameters while also silencing all alarm messages, basically putting the Flo System to sleep. When you wake up the house again, all alarms will be set back to their original status.

When your family goes on vacation or leaves for any extended period of time, it's important to know that they won't hear an alarm if it goes off. This is why we recommend using Away Mode instead of Sleep Mode if you don't want to be woken up by an alarm when you return. The system will continue to monitor temperature, air quality, and other factors while in Away Mode; it's just that no one is awake to respond to them. You can reset the system after you return home by tapping the "Home" button on the Touchscreen Display. After doing so, make sure that the Away Mode toggle is set to Off so that everyone wakes up together next time they visit!


In Windows, Away Mode is similar to Sleep and Hibernate Mode in that it turns off the power to most devices to save energy and can be easily woken up. Away Mode is intended to support media PC scenarios such as background media sharing and recording. In addition, users can specify time ranges during which they are away from their computers, so if they need to use their computer for an extended period of time, they can do so without worrying about being logged out.
