Control: How to turn on and off your lights at location, groups and individual levels

These instructions relate to App 4.0. Please make sure you have the latest version prior to following these instructions. Download for iOS or Android.

The Dashboard is for on the fly, non-routine light control. Here you can toggle your lights on and off at three different levels, view how your groups are organized and view any lights that aren't connected to the cloud. Checkout features like schedules and scenes for more routine control.

From the Dashboard you can control:

  • The location (top left) - ON/OFF
  • Groups - ON/OFF, Dimming
  • Individual lights - ON/OFF

The Location.

1. Toggle the switch in the top left corner to power lights for the whole location

Note: this is great for turning off all the lights as you leave the house or are about to go to sleep, or lighting the whole home before you arrive when it's dark.

 

Groups.

1. When the group card is closed (expanded so you cannot see the individual lights within the group) you can tap the switch to toggle your grouped lights ON/OFF
2. Drag the switch up and down to change the brightness of the lights in the group

Note: when toggling a group on and off, the on setting will jump to the last brightness you set.

Note: a switch that is colored and 'up' is active. It means the light is on, or one, some or all of the lights at the group or location are on. A switch that is dull and in the down position is inactive, meaning the light group or location is off.
