How can we brighten your day?



Have your hands full?

Use Torch to let your light guide your path.

Just turn on the Torch Experience and put your phone in your pocket. When you move around your house your ilumi Smartbulbs will automatically detect where you are and turn on and off as you enter and leave a room. 

How Do I Activate This Feature?

  1. Tap the menu button and then "Experiences".
  2. Tap the plus sign (+) in the top right hand corner of the screen to "Create a New Experience". 
  3. Select "Torch" from the Create New Experience view.
  4. Proceed with selecting your custom Torch settings like start times and repeating days.
  5. Tap the toggle in the top right corner of the app screen to turn the experience "on". The toggle will be in the far right position when turned on.


 Torch Experience Options:

  1. Select ilumi - Select the groups or individual ilumi you'd like to respond to Torch
  2. Always On - Select if you want Torch to work whenever you're close to your ilumi regardless of the day or time
  3. Set the Time - Set start and end times for Torch to be active
  4. Set the Days - Set "Repeating Days" for Torch to be active
  5. Set Range - Select the relative distance that you'd like Torch to turn on your ilumi. All the way to the left is "low", meaning you need to be closer. All the way to the right is "max" and means ilumi will turn on when you're farther away. 

Please Note: The range is relative to your fixtures and layout of your home. Test and adjust the settings to get Torch exactly how you like it.


What Should I Expect When Using Torch?

While Torch is active, your ilumi Smartbulbs will sense the presence of your device, turning on and off as you move from room to room. It will typically take no more than a few seconds to turn your lights on when you're in range and about a minute for your lights to dim until off when you're out of range.

Helpful Tip: Set Torch for when you're getting ready for work in the morning. Have your lights turn off and on as you move from room to room, and turn off as you leave the house - Never worry about forgetting to turn off the lights again!
