General

How do I add a new light into the network?

First of all, please make sure that your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network (2.4GHz).

In the main screen of the application, select the room in which you want to add a light. If the room has no light, there will be a Start button to start the pairing, if there are already lights in the room press the + button in the top right corner.

If necessary, provide your Wi-Fi password. Then pairing process will start in the application.

Power off your light, then power it back on and start the pairing. The light should soon show up on your screen.
In case this first step didn’t work, then put your light in pairing mode by turning it repeatedly OFF and ON with the power switch until it pulses in blue (color light) or cool white (tunable white light), and start the pairing again.
If the second step fails, the simply go for “Manual setup”, which will make you connect directly to your light’s Wi-Fi to complete the pairing.
Once your light shows in the application, you can start using it.

What does Circadian Rhythm do?

The app automatically creates for you a Circadian Rhythm, which is aimed at replicating the natural changes of the sunlight throughout the day.

Gradual transitions

Lights using the Circadian rhythm will:
– Gradually brighten in the morning, using cool white.
– The white will then become more neutral and even brighter during the day.
– When evening gets closer, the lights will start to dim and get warmer, until they eventually turn into night light mode for bedtime.
Transitions are slow and smooth.

Adjusting bedtime and wake-up time

You can adjust the time for wake-up and bedtime, and the rhythm will adapt automatically. To do so, tap on “Edit” at the bottom of the Circadian rhythm card.
Since it is a default setting, Circadian Rhythm cannot be deleted.

How do I first commission my lights?

If your light has never been paired before, then it will simply enter pairing mode when you power it on.
To avoid creating disturbances, the light will not give any visual feedback (such as blinking or pulsing). But it will be available for pairing.
Note that this will also be triggered if:

– the light has been paired before and found its network at power on, but could not connect to it due to a wrong password

How does the WiZ Remote work?

Every remote control is attached to one room in particular, and controls only that room.
It allows you turn the room on and off, adjust the brightness, switch to night light, and play your 4 favorite light modes.
For the Bluetooth remote control to operate within a room, you need to make sure that this room contains at least one WiZ light with Bluetooth compatibility.
To add a Bluetooth remote control into a room, start by making sure that at least one of the lights of this room supports Bluetooth, and is powered on.
Then, from the Home screen of the app, press on the + button in the top right corner. Select “Add device” then “Remote”.
While the app is searching for remotes, bring your Bluetooth remote control close to your lights, and press on the ON button a few times. Your remote should soon appear on the screen.
Once your remote has appeared on the screen, give it a name. All set!
