When is it recommended to create an Area group?

Area groups are groups of lights arranged on extended scenarios.
All your Twinkly devices will become an individual bigger setting, on which the effects will be reproduced in full size.

For example, if you have three Twinkly X-Mas trees, and you decide to group them together in the same Area Group, the effect will be shown on the whole setting.  Each one of the grouped devices will reproduce a portion of the entire figure.
