Before getting started, do not power the bulbs on first. 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 WiFi that your hub is on.
Additionally, ensure the following prerequisites are met:
- The Sengled Home app is updated to, at least, version 1.1.42; to check your app's version, tap on the "Settings" tab and then tap on "About Sengled".
- Your hub's firmware is updated to, at least, 4.3.9 with coordinator 0.0.5007; this article shows how to do that.
Once you have completed these prerequisites, we can proceed:
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 “Smart LEDs”, please.
Now, a page will pop-up asking you to confirm you have the Smart LED bulbs which require a hub in order to be used.
Read the instructions on the pop-up and, only after you have confirmed the bulb you have meets the criteria shown in the app, press "Confirm".
Now, 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.
From here, power the bulb(s) on.
Please note that Sengled Smart LED Multicolor 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 Smart LED Multicolor bulbs are not meant to be used in fully-enclosed fixtures.
Additionally, the Multicolor bulb are not meant to be used outdoors or in restrooms due to concerns of humidity damage.
Once the bulb(s) are powered on, press "Next". Now, the hub will search for the bulb(s).
Note: If your bulbs were powered on previously for more than three minutes, you would want to: power your bulbs off, wait at least 15 seconds, power your bulbs on, and then press "Next" to proceed.
Once the bulb(s) are found, they will flash three times and appear on the screen.
Once the Sengled Home app has indicated it has found all of your bulb(s), press "Next".
In this case, we were only adding one bulb, so we pressed "Next" after it was found.
From here, the bulb will be added to your hub.
The Element Color Plus bulb will now add to your hub. This could, at most, take up to three minutes.
After the bulb has been added to your hub, you will see a checkmark that says “Success” next to your bulb. Press “Next” to proceed.
Once you are on the “Congratulations” screen, you can assign a bulb to a room.
To identify which bulb you are assigning to a room, press the power button a few times until you can see the physical bulb, not the icon representation in the app, power off/on.
Once you know which bulb you are assigning to a room, we can assign the bulb to a pre-existing room by scrolling rightward on the “Assign the device to a room bar” or a new room by pressing “Add Room”.
We choose to create a new room in the Sengled Home app for our new Element Color Plus bulb by tapping on “Add Room”.
In the provided example, we are going to assign the bulb to a new room. Press the bar that says, “room name” and type in a desired room name. In this example, we chose to name the room “Family Room”.
After the room is named, press “OK”.
Since this is the first bulb assigned to the “Family Room” it will have the default name of “Family Room Bulb 1”; you can alter the name by tapping on the default name and writing in a new name.
Once the bulb is named to your satisfaction, press “Done”. The room information will be refreshed, you will be directed to the “Home” page and you can proceed to control the Sengled Smart LED Multicolor bulb(s) that you have added to your hub.
