Triggers are automatic activations for your scenarios. Kirio supports multiple trigger sources from simple to complex schedules, events and many others.

Creating a celestial or astronomical schedule for automatic execution is very easy: Set when you'd like a scenario to run and Kirio will execute it automatically.

Execution does not require your app to be connected; it is stored in your Kirio!

Step-by-step guide

  1. Before adding a schedule to any scenario, create a simple scenario first.
  2. To edit a scenario, tap and hold the tile, then select the pencil icon to edit the scenario details.
  3. Tap on the Triggers tab and tap Add to add a new trigger.
  4. Tap on to add a new trigger source and select Celestial.
  5. Pick the Celestial reference you want by noting the following.
    • Dawn is the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise.
    • Sunrise is the time in the morning when the sun appears or full daylight arrives.
    • Sunset is the time in the evening when the sun disappears or daylight fades.
    • Dusk is the darker stage of twilight or when the sun is below the horizon.
      Each celestial reference is computed based on your exact GPS location and does not require any Internet connectivity.
  6. If you require a Time offset, select negative numbers for earlier and positive for later offsets.
  7. Tap on Add.


Each trigger section (e.g. Trigger 1) requires that every trigger listed under it must occur together in order for the scenario to execute. It is similar to a logical AND.

Add a new trigger (e.g., Trigger 2...) for Kirio to treat each separately as logical OR.

This layering of events, schedule, celestial and geofences triggers allow for very powerful and flexible scenario execution. Do test your triggers to make sure they fulfill your needs.

If triggers need to be stopped for a while or are not needed, simply switch them off with the Enable triggers switch.

Kirio automatically adjust for Daylight saving time and other time shifting strategies for your location. So, you do not need to adjust the time of your schedule!
