The Sengled Home Widgets are buttons which will appear as app icons that will implement a scene from the Sengled Home app. By default, everyone has two scenes—“All On” and “All Off” which control the lights in the Sengled Home app. You can create more scenes in the Sengled Home app.
For more information about scenes, please see our scenes overview here.
The advantage of a widget is to allow one to have pre-determined commands enacted by the bulbs without needing to open the Sengled Home app.
To create a widget on almost all Android devices, you will first press and hold a part of the home screen of your app where no app icons are located. There will be differences from Android to Android.
Then, on the menu that pops up, press “Widgets”.
From here, scroll down to the Sengled Home widgets. Press and hold the icon size you would prefer. In this example, we chose the 1 x 1 option since we only want one scene to have an icon on the home page of our phone.
Note: the 4 x 2 widget can have up to four scenes within it.
Then, choose the widget you would like enabled. In this case, we chose the “Movie Time” scene.
From here, press “Save” and the widget will be created as demonstrated by the second screenshot.
Like app icons, widget icons can be moved to different locations on your home screen.
