Adding a Sengled Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb or Accessory (iOS Setup)

1) Confirm the Model Number (M/N):

First, we must determine if the bulb is a Sengled Smart Wi-Fi LED bulb.

Below is an example photo of where the bulb's model number (M/N) information can be found:


If the model number (M/N) of the bulb starts with a W, that means that the bulb is a Wi-Fi LED. It may be one of the following:

W11 products W1G products
W21 products W1E products
W31 products W12 products

If it is, then this is a confirmed Wi-Fi LED, and should be set up using the Sengled Home app.


2) Use Conditions: 

Next, our Wi-Fi LED bulbs—like most LED bulbs—are not meant to be used in the following conditions: 

Wall dimmers

Ceiling fan fixtures

Lamp with multiple power settings (i.e. a low/high power lamp, a low/medium/high power lamp—a 3-way lamp—or a dimmer lamp)

Enclosed fixtures



3) Adding: 

Note: Before getting started, do not power the bulb on first. This may cause it to fall out of its three-minute pairing mode. 

Before getting started, make sure your phone is connected to your home’s 2.4GHz WiFi—i.e. the Wi-Fi to which your wish to setup the Sengled Wi-Fi bulb.

If you do have a Sengled Wi-Fi bulb, open the Sengled Home app to add the Sengled Wi-Fi bulb.

From here, press the plus sign in the top right corner. 


This will bring up a list of products for you to choose from. Tap on “Wi-Fi LEDs and Accessories”.


The app will ask you to confirm that the Wi-Fi bulb does indeed have the Wi-Fi logo. We have already established that you do have a Wi-Fi bulb from the list of products above. You may tap "Confirm".




Now, power the Smart Wi-Fi bulb on.

After the bulb is powered on, wait for it to blink twice. After it blinks twice, press “Next”.



​The Sengled Home app will then search for the Wi-Fi signal that the Wi-Fi bulb is emitting. You may see a message like the one below:



If your phone does not automatically connect with the Wi-Fi bulb then you may need to go to your phone's network settings in order to connect to the Sengled Wi-Fi bulb's network. 


Go to your phone's Wi-Fi settings and tap on the Sengled Wi-Fi network where you see it listed in order to connect.



Once connected, you may see a message saying that there in no network connection on the Sengled bulb's network. This is because the Sengled bulb's Wi-Fi network is only a set up network and not a real Wi-Fi connection that can be used to access the internet. 

This is your phone's way of warning you in case a Wi-Fi network loses a network connection, but in this instance we can ignore the message.

Then return to the Sengled Home app. The app will then begin looking for available 2.4 G networks.



Once connected, you will be on the “Enter the password for…” page.

If you have already added a Wi-Fi device, the network will show as a previously saved network. If it is previously saved then you will not need to enter the password.

If you have not already added a Wi-Fi device, type in the password for the Wi-Fi displayed in the Wi-Fi name box. Use the “Show” button to ensure the password is correct. An incorrect password will cause setup to fail.

Remember to press the "Return" key on your phone's keyboard in order to minimize the keyboard. This will allow you access the Next button.

Once you have ensured the password is correct, press “Next”.

Your Wi-Fi bulb will proceed to connect to your router’s Wi-Fi.



Then the app will connect the Wi-Fi device.



Once the bulb is added, you will be on a page that says “1 Device Added”.


From this page, select "Set up Room". The rooms are groups in the Sengled Home app that correspond to locations in your home. You can customize the rooms as well.

You will be taken to a page where you will be asked to choose a room from a list of options. Some of the rooms in this example screenshot are already customized. You may customize your rooms once the set up process is completed. If you do not see the option you want, please select one that is closest, and you may alter it later.

Once you have made your selection, press the next button.



After that, the bulb will be renamed based upon the room it is in. The automatically generated names make it much easier to identify and organize the bulbs if you wish to connect them to your Echo/Alexa or Google Assistant. You may alter the name in the following steps.

You will then be asked to select all bulbs that will be moved into the new group. Tap the little square beside the bulb where it is listed to mark it for being added to the room. The box will turn red and show a white check mark to confirm the bulb is selected.

If you need to remind yourself of where the bulb is, you may use the "Locate" button. This will show the "Blink" button which you can use to flash the lights.

Once you are ready, press the "Next" button.



Here is the final step. If you would like to change the name of the bulb, select the "Edit" button. 

This will enable you to rename the bulb. Tap where the name is written and your keyboard should appear. Once you have entered the correct name, select the "return" key on your keyboard to minimize the keyboard. 



Once the name of the bulb is saved, you may press "Done" in the top right corner to complete the process.​
