< All Topics

  • Select the zone:
    • *Note* – In order for the “Accent” mode to work properly, the zones need to be set up with the correct number of lights on each zone (skip to zone section for how to)
      • If there are 113 lights on the front of your home, the zone needs to be 113 lights
    • Press ▼ next to “All Zones” to select the zone you’d like to turn on
      • By default, your system is set to a zone called “All Lights”
      • If you have created your own zones, they will show up here
    • To turn on a zone, toggle it to blue.  To turn off a zone, toggle it to grey
    • To play a new pattern on a zone, make sure the zone is both toggled on/blue and the box to the right is selected with a ✓
      • If the zone is toggled on/blue but the box to the right is not selected, you are not changing what is being displayed for that zone (it will stay the same)
    • If your system only has the “All Lights” zone configured, turn it on/blue and select the box to the right with a ✓
    • *Note* – Only 1 zone can be toggled on/blue and only the box to the right of that zone can be selected with a ✓ while creating an accent lighting pattern
    • *Note* – If a zone is modified after an Accent is created, the Accent may not display correctly
    • *Note* – If an Accent is created and the name of the zone changes after the Accent has been created, the Accent will no longer work
  • Choose what lights are on
    • Pressing the – and + will move a white blinking light across the roofline showing which light is “active” and be turned on or off
    • If “Set” is pressed, this “active” light becomes the “accent” color. A light that was not “set” it will become the background color
    • *Note* – Each light is recognized by the controller as a number (the 1st light is 1, the 2nd light is 2, and so on.) The display on the app shows which lights are “accent” lights by their “number”

        • Select the color you want
        • Leave black if you want the rest of the lights to be off
