Manual Bulb Reset Instructions

Manually resetting your ilumi should be a last resort option if you are unable to connect to your ilumi. The manual reset procedure will remove all ilumi from your profile and start over with a "blank slate".

Before you reset your ilumi, we recommend the following:

  1. You have the latest version of the ilumi app from the iTunes or Google Play.
  2. Check to see if there is a Firmware Update Available - How do I update my firmware?
  3. Check that your device's Bluetooth is turned on. If Bluetooth is on, resetting Bluetooth on your device by turning it off/on might also resolve any connection issues. 
  4. Follow the connection troubleshooting steps

 

Resetting your ilumi is a two step process:

  1. Delete from group in the App
  2. Manually reset at the light switch.

We highly recommend removing your ilumi from your app first - this should automatically reset your ilumi and you should see it turn series of colors, and then finally, will turn a bright white. 

From within the app, you can go to the menu and select "Add ilumi" to begin the pairing process.

 

If your ilumi did not automatically reset when it was removed from the group, follow the manual reset instructions below.

A19, A21, BR30 (Indoor & Outdoor), and Smartstrips:

  1. Slowly turn the manual switch on/off five times, in a row. When performing this, leave the switch in the off position for about one second, then turn it on, and as soon as light comes on, immediately turn off again and repeat.
  2. When the bulb is reset, it will begin to turn a series of colors ( red, green, blue, back to white), and then finally, will turn a bright white - this is the pairing mode color cycle.

Original PAR30 Smartbulbs (Large): 

To reset the original PAR30s (the larger bulbs with slots in the side), they require power to be fully lost before they'll reset. The capacitor in the PAR30s require a small delay for the power to completely be lost.

You'll need to turn the switch off/on five times, but leave the switch in the off position for about 2 seconds, then turn on, and as soon as light comes on immediately turn off again and repeat.

Repeat this five times. This pattern will trigger the ilumi to reset:

  1. Turn off - count 1, 2, turn on
  2. Turn off - count 1, 2, turn on
  3. Turn off - count 1, 2, turn on
  4. Turn off - count 1, 2, turn on
  5. Turn off - count 1, 2, turn on

Your ilumi Smartbulbs are now reset! To pair ilumi with the app, go to the menu and select "Add ilumi." 

 

Note: If your ilumi Smartbulbs were previously paired, and located within a group, you will need to follow the instructions for removing your ilumi from your app. Please follow those instructions here: Reset ilumi and remove from a group
