Reference Point

The reference point will allow you to fix the positioning of your rooms in case they got changed after you redid your boundary or similar. Here the steps:

  1. Go to the Overview tab of the Room menu
  2. Click on the edit button (pen icon)
  3. Locate and move the Reference point to a desired location, for example an image hanging on the wall or a window
  4. Press the save button

The result should look something like this:

Reference Point next to Image

In case that your room now has moved after starting the app again, you can do the following to fix the alignment again:

  1. Go to the Overview tab of the Room menu
  2. Click on the fix button (band aid icon)
  3. Move the Reference Point back to it's original position
  4. Press the save button

This should result in the room being in the right spot again. In case there is something wrong at the moment, restart the app and everything should be back to normal.
