Quick start.


Connecting LED Bulb to an Existing Network.


Getting your LED Bulb up and running is as simple as inserting it into a lamp holder and adding it to your existing Z-Wave network. You’ll need to set your Z-Wave hub to accept new products; to do this, please refer to its user manual.


1. Toggle off the wall switch into the OFF position.


2. Remove any existing light bulb and replace it with LED Bulb.


3. Set your Z-Wave gateway to accept or pair new products. 

(If you are unsure, please refer to your Z-Wave Gateway/Controller instruction manual on how to set your gateway to pair or inclusion mode).


4. With LED Bulb in its fitting, toggle your wall switch ON. LED Bulb’s LED will turn into a solid yellow color to indicate that it is in pair mode up to 10 seconds.


5. After successfully connecting to your network, LED Bulb will flash green -> white color for 3 seconds. If a network connection has failed, LED Bulb 6 Multi-Color will flash red -> white for 3 seconds.



Using LED Bulb.


With your LED Bulb now a part of your smart home, you’ll be able to schedule, configure and control it your Z-Wave gateway. Please refer to the relevant pages of your gateway’s user manual for instructions on configuring LED Bulb to your needs. Not all gateways will support changing LED bulbs warm or cool shade of white, if this is a function you require, please contact your gateways support team to determine if the color changing over their interface is compatible.


Please note that the wall switch controlling LED Bulb needs to be left in the on position in order for LED Bulb 6 to function within your Z-Wave network. In the off position, LED Bulb will not be able to draw power and will not be remotely controllable nor be able to serve as a Z-Wave repeater.

More advanced configurations.


The LED Bulb 6 has a longer list of device configurations that you can do with LED Bulb 6. These are not exposed well in most gateways, but at the least you can manually set configurations through most Z-Wave gateways available. These configuration options may not be available in a few gateways.
