Before getting started, do not power the bulbs on. This may cause them to fall out of their three-minute pairing mode. Make sure your phone is connected to the same 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi that your hub is on.
The first thing you would want to do is open the Sengled Home app and press the three dots in a circle symbol located in the top-right of the screen. Then, press “Add Device”.
From here, press “Element Bulbs”, then select the hub you wish to add the bulb to and press “Next”.
In the provided example, there is only one hub associated with the account.
Now, press “Scan Code” to bring up the QR code scanner. This will allow us to scan the QR code on the bulb itself.
When scanning the QR code, hold the bulb still and scan in a well-lit area. The bulb’s QR code should be about six inches to one foot away from the scanner. The camera will auto-focus in on the QR code and scan it automatically.
If you need more light, press the flashlight button below the QR code scanner. If you are having trouble scanning the QR code, you can press “Enter MAC Address” located on the bottom of the QR code scanning screen.
After you have scanned the QR code of the bulb, you will be on a screen that shows you a picture of the bulb, the model number of the bulb and the MAC/ZID number of the bulb. If you have another bulb to add, press “Scan Another One”; if not, press “Next”.
After scanning the bulb(s) you wish to add to your hub and pressing “Next”, you would screw the bulb(s) into the location you want to use them in and power them on.
Note: The Sengled Element Classic A19 bulbs and Sengled Element Classic BR30 bulbs cannot be used on dimmer switches. This would include wall dimmers, ceiling fan fixtures and 3-way lamps (lamps with low, medium and high power settings built-in).
Furthermore, the Sengled Element Classic bulbs are not meant to be used in fully enclosed fixtures. Additionally, the Sengled Element Classic bulbs are not meant to be used outdoors.
After the bulb(s) are powered on, press “Next” on the “Turn on your Lights” screen.
From here, the scanned bulb(s) will add to your hub. They will flash three times during this process to indicate they are being added to your hub.
Once added to your hub, you will see a green checkmark next to the bulb. Press “Next” to proceed.
Once you are on the “Congratulations” screen, you can assign bulbs to a room. To visually identify which bulb you are assigning to a room, press the power button a few times until you can visually tell which bulb you are about to assign to a room in the Sengled Home app.
The rest of the examples will show the various ways to assign a bulb to a room.
In the provided example, the “Bedroom” room is selected by default; this is why the bulb is named “Bedroom Bulb 3”.
Assign the bulb to the room which corresponds to where the bulb will be used.
Below “1. Assign the device to a room”, we can choose to assign the bulb to a room that already exists in the Sengled Home app. For example, by tapping on “Living Room” the bulb will automatically be assigned to the living room; the bulb will be renamed “Living Room Bulb 1”.
To see the available rooms, scroll right and left. In the following example, we scrolled rightward to see the available rooms.
We tapped on “Office” to assign the bulb to the office in the Sengled Home app.
If you do not see the room you wish to assign the bulb to, tap on “Add Room”.
On the “Add a New Room” pop-up, you can tap on “room name” to create a room.
In the provided example, we named the room “Hallway”. After that, we pressed “OK”.
Once the bulb is assigned to the room which corresponds to the room the bulb will be used in, press “Done”.
The room information will refresh, and you will see that the total number of bulbs in the “Bedroom” is three (as indicated by the total of the numbers next to the red lightbulb icon and the grey lightbulb icon.)
