Schedule Night Mode
Create a daily or weekly schedule for Night Mode.
Wake & Dim
Each Wake/Dim field can be set with a time using the 24-hour clock system. For example, to wake your kiosk at 9 am and dim your kiosk at 5 pm, you can set Wake to
9:00 and Dim to
Default Values: [empty]
Note: If you launch your kiosk presentation during a scheduled dim period, Kiosk Pro assumes you do not want to enter Night Mode for that period (as it would be potentially confusing to a user to launch the kiosk in a dimmed state) and will wait until the next scheduled dim period to engage.
Night Mode is based on the device's internal clock. If your schedule is inaccurate, double-check that the time on your device is correct.
Creating a daily schedule
By default, Wake/Dim times will be run every day, but you can also use the word "Daily" to make this more clear. For example, to wake your kiosk at 9 am every day, you can set
Creating a weekly schedule
To schedule Night Mode for specific days, you can add the day of the week in front of the time. For example, to dim your kiosk at 3 PM on Tuesday, you can set
Tuesday 15:00 as your Dim time.
Please note that 'Daily' cannot be combined with different times for other days of the week. If you need six days of the week on one schedule and the other day on a different schedule, you will need to program each day individually.

The 'Show Schedule' button in the top right corner allows you to generate a file showing the next 50 Dim/Wake periods based on the schedule currently configured. This can be helpful to confirm that a complex schedule has been set correctly or to troubleshoot a problem.
When selected, the app will generate a text file called '_sleep_scheduling_.txt' in the '_com.kioskgroup.application.logs_' folder in the Kiosk Pro documents folder. It can be accessed by via iTunes or by sending a troubleshooting log to your own email.
Wake/Dim times are shown as complete date and timestamps in the timezone set on the device. Dim periods are marked with a 'd' preceding the timestamp; Sleep period are marked with an 's'.
The following screenshot shows a schedule where the kiosk is configured to be available for use on Mondays from 09:00 to 17:00 and on Tuesdays from 09:30 to 17:30 and dimmed the remainder of the week.
