Adding a Sengled Smart Switch/Remote to your Sengled hub

Note: Before getting started, do not remove the “REMOVE TO PAIR” tab until instructed to do so by the Sengled Home app. Removal of the tab will cause the switch/remote to fall out of the one-minute pairing mode.

Additional Note: The Sengled Smart Switch/Remote can only control the devices on the hub to which it is attached. It cannot control the Sengled Smart WiFi LED bulbs or Smart LED bulbs on a different hub than the one to which it is paired.

Make sure your phone is connected to the same 2.4 GHz WiFi 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 “Smart Light Switch”, then select the hub you wish to add the bulb to and press “Next”.

In the provided example, there are two hubs so we must be careful to in selecting the hub as the smart switch can only control the devices on the hub to which it is attached.

In this case, by default, the Downstairs hub is selected and that is the hub to which we want the smart switch to be on; so, we press “Next”.

Now, press “Scan Code” to bring up the QR code scanner. This will allow us to scan the QR code on the switch/remote itself.

When scanning the QR code, hold your phone in one hand and the remote/switch in the other. Try to scan in a well-lit area. The 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, feel free to 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.

Note: The screenshot depicting the QR code being scanned was taken just before the QR code was scanned.

After you have scanned the QR code, you will be on a screen that shows you a picture of the switch/remote, the model number of the device and the MAC/ZID number of the device. If you have another device to add, press “Scan Another One”; if not, press “Next”.

After scanning the device(s) you wish to add to your hub and pressing “Next”.

Now, remove the “REMOVE TO PAIR” tab. Press and hold the “ON” button and the “OFF” button for at least three seconds. This will cause the indicator light on the switch, located at the top-left corner of the “ON” button, to flash rapidly.

Once that is done, press “Next”.

After the switch is added, by default, it is set to control all of the lights associated with hub to which it was paired.

To change the settings of the switch and program it to control only the bulbs you want controlled, go to the “Devices” tab from the Home page of the Sengled Home app.

From here, tap the various buttons of the example switch/remote on your screen for more information.

Once you are done press “OK”. And your will be redirected back to the “Home” page of the Sengled Home app.
