Menu Selection: Insert > Object > Optimal Start

Note: On the Configure screen, click the [...] button to select the object from the Select Item dialog box and then select the desired attribute for the Cooling Setpoint, Heating Setpoint, and Zone Temperature.

The Optimal Start object aids in the reduction of energy costs during a building’s transition from unoccupied to occupied. This scenario is accomplished by turning on the preheating/precooling as late as possible to reach comfort levels prior to occupancy and turning off the heating/cooling as early as possible while maintaining occupied zone comfort until zone vacancy.

This object allows you to save energy by coordinating the startup and shutdown times of equipment according to when people occupy certain rooms or areas of the building.
