Pairing a New ilumi


After you have created your account, you can begin pairing your new ilumi Smartbulbs.  The pairing process links each bulb to your app, so only you or your authorized users can control your ilumi smartbulbs. If you don't have any ilumi paired already, the "Dashboard" screen tap on the "Search for ilumi" button at the bottom of your screen to begin scanning for your ilumi.  

You can also access the pairing screen manually by swiping right in the top navigation until you reach the "More" section. Then tap the first row,  "Search for New Bulbs." 

The app will begin to search for unpaired ilumi. Make sure your ilumi and powered on and nearby. As the app finds each ilumi it will appear as a colored icon like this:

Each ilumi Smartbulb will also change color corresponding to the color of it's icon. This is helpful if you are pairing multiple ilumi at the same time. To pair, simply hold and drag each icon down to "New Group" or an existing group. 

If you are creating a new group, proceed to name your group.

Next, your ilumi app will offer suggestions for the best light for you space. Select the proper room to associate your new group by scrolling through the room types.

Next, you can select a master default setting that turns on when your ilumi receives power. To help you find the right light for your space, the ilumi app will suggest a master default based on the room type.

Alternatively, you can customize your master default setting by selecting "Customize" at the bottom of the screen. Then, you will be given the option to select a white or color setting as the master default for your space.

Once you have chosen a color to your liking, tap create group to finish the pairing process. 

Continue to pair any other ilumi by dragging and dropping each into a 'New Group' or an existing group if you'd like to control those ilumi together. The existing groups can be accessed by swiping the Group name blocks left or right at the bottom of the screen.


That's it! Your ilumi Smartbulbs are now paired, grouped, and ready for action.  Tap the arrow in the top left corner of the screen to get back to your Dashboard, explore and enjoy!
