How To: Manage people and profiles with BlueCurve Home
Learn how to manage people and profiles with BlueCurve Home. In the People menu, you can view and create profiles. Profiles allow you to group devices together to easily manage and personalize your home network. Features like Parental Controls and Downtime Schedules can be applied to all devices in a profile at once.
Household and Guest profiles
For your convenience, we've created two profiles to help you get started.
Household: This profile is intended for smart home devices used by all family members such as a thermostat, security system and door locks.
Guest: This profile is intended for visitors' devices that you'd like to keep track of.
These profiles cannot be deleted, and they will only appear in the People section if devices are assigned to them. Downtime Schedules are not available for the Household or Guest profiles.
How to create a profile
You can manage devices connected to your home network more efficiently by assigning them to a profile. Create a profile for an individual (e.g., John or Mom) or a group (e.g., Kids), then assign their devices to that profile.
Enter a Name for the profile and choose an Icon to help identify it, then click Create.
Choose devices to assign to the profile by selecting the check-boxes beside each device, then click Assign. If there aren't any devices to assign to this profile, you can close this page to finish creating your profile.
Click Close to return to the People menu.
Your new profile is ready to use! The profile will appear in the People section.
How to manage profiles
From the People menu in BlueCurve Home, you can see all of your profiles and easily manage them. This includes assigning devices to a profile, pausing Internet access for all devices in a profile, renaming or deleting profiles, and more.
