Knox Configure Routines

Knox Configure Routines allow you to easily program devices to respond to events based on various factors. The automated responses are triggered by context clues such as time, battery level, charging status, and more. Simply put, with KC Routines, you can apply dynamic event-based settings and actions to your devices without any code. Customize different use cases with Routine Applets by mixing multiple triggers and actions.

An example case to lock in specific device settings while workers are on shift can look like this:

Then:

  • Turn on medium power-saving mode.
  • Lower device volume.
  • Switch to hospital Wi-Fi.
  • Change lock screen shortcuts.
