How do I turn off my lights using EcoSmart Live?

Ive been holding off on asking this question because it sounds dumb, but I've had my unit for about 6 months now and cant figure out how to turn off the pumps or lights until I am done with my maintenance. Is it somewhere in the demo mode?

I'm sure there is a simple way to do it, but whenever I've needed all my lights out,,,, for anything, I just unplug them. I don't have to fire up the laptop or any device. Takes about 2 seconds.
When I plug them back in, they resume the normal light schedule.

Thanks Mfinn, thats what Ive been doing. I would just be shocked if they put in all this elaborate scheduling and color sliding and forgot to include "off".

It's not really an option. You can go into demo mode and manually turn your pumps to zero, but it's just clunky.

Ive struggling with the same, I thought there was an option to turn them off and they would keep off.
Yesterday at night I turned them off pressing the 3 buttons on the units and today morning they were all turned on!
And is there a way to let them at 10% and they stay that way until I change it?
