Smart Bulb Instructions
LIGHT MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
Installation of the mounting bracket depends on the size
of your pool light opening or if you have an existing niche.
STEP 1 Remove the mounting bracket from the back of the light by unscrewing the set screw and releasing the bracket from the bottom hinge.
STEP 2 Attach the mounting bracket to either your existing niche or pool wall. See Option 1 or 2 above.
STEP 3 Run the power cable through the opening in pool wall or through the back of the niche to the surface where your pool light switch box is located.
STEP 4 Reattach the bottom of the light to the hinge at the bottom of the light bracket. Tilt the light upwards and secure it to the top of the light bracket with the set screw.
LIGHT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
ATTENTION: If you are currently running a 12V system you will need to disconnect your current transformer and use the included transformer control box when hooking up this light. We recommend using a licensed electrician for installation.
STEP 1 Turn off the circuit breaker to the pool light switch box. Place a non-contact voltage tester against the switch box to verify no power is present.
STEP 2 Disconnect and remove your existing pool light fixture, if applicable.
STEP 3 Refer to the LIGHT MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS above to install the light. After completing the install, continue to step 4.
STEP 4 See FIGURE 1. Run the cable from the light and the cable from the Smart Pool Light Control System to a junction box. Match each colored wire as shown in FIGURE 2 and secure with wire nuts. Connect the three wires from the other end of the Smart Pool Light Control System to the 110/120V power source FIGURE 3. NOTE: If you are running the wires inside of conduit (recommended), use plastic 3/4 inch to fit over the wires and the metal nut assembly. Seal it with silicone to prevent water from getting inside.
STEP 5 Mount the junction box and control box to the wall. The control box can be mounted sideways if necessary. NOTE: If the control box is over 50 feet from the Wi-Fi router an extender may be needed to enhance the signal.
STEP 6 Turn on the circuit breaker and then turn on the light. Once the light is on, proceed to the “DOWNLOADING THE APP AND SYNCING THE LIGHT” instructions.
STEP 7 Proceed to downloading the app to your smart phone.
DOWNLOADING THE LIFE-BULB APP AND SYNCING THE LIGHT
Scan one of the QR codes below with your smart phone camera to download the app.
Follow these steps to use the app and sync the light. Note: Both your smart phone and control box need to be within Wi-Fi range to pick up the signal. If your router is greater than 50 feet from the control box you may need a Wi-Fi extender to expand the signal.
STEP 1 Download the Life-Bulb app and then open it. Choose when to allow
STEP 2 Tap sign-up to register.
STEP 4 Enter the verification code that was sent to your email address.
STEP 5 Set your password then tap done.
STEP 6 Tap “Allow” when you see “Life-Bulb would like to find and connect
to devices on your local network”.
STEP 7 Tap “Continue” when you see “Life-Bulb app is requesting the
following access permissions”.
STEP 8 Tap “OK” when you see “Life-Bulb Would Like to Use Bluetooth”.
STEP 9 IMPORTANT - The app will show “Add Device” but before doing so you need to have the light in pairing mode. To set the light to pairing mode, turn the switch controlling power to the light OFF and ON three (3) times. The light will turn white and begin to flash. Once it is in pairing mode, tap “Add Device”. NOTE: Once the light begins flashing, you will have about 1 minute to pair the light. If the light stops flashing and turns solid before it is paired, you will have to repeat the ON and OFF process until the light starts to flash again. Then proceed with adding the device.
STEP 10 Tap “Continue” when you see “Life-Bulb app is requesting the following access permissions”.
STEP 11 Tap “Allow While Using App” when you see “Allow Life-Bulb to use your location”
STEP 12 Tap “Add” to add device
STEP 13 Enter your Wi-Fi information and tap “Next”
STEP 14 You will see the device being added. Once added successfully tap “Done”
LIGHT WILL NOT CONNECT TO WI-FI - Both your smart phone and control box need to be within Wi-Fi range. If you receive one of the below messages, your control box and/or smart phone is too far away from your router and is not picking up your Wi-Fi signal. Since the control box is now mounted to the wall you will need to move the router closer to your control box until it detects the light (device). If you are unable to move the router closer you will need to add a Wi-Fi extender or Mesh Network to expand the Wi-Fi signal.
1) “Network is unavailable, please check the network”
2) “Device Adding Timeout”
3) ” TY-02-5CH” is not showing up on the app
LIGHT WILL NOT TURN ON WITH THE POWER SWITCH - If you previously used your remote to turn off the light you will need to turn the light back on with the remote before you can use the on/off switch to sync the light.
NOTE: We recommend using the app to control the light verses the remote. Wi-Fi is a more reliable signal than the RF technology used by the remote.
CONTROLLING THE LIGHT WITH ALEXA OR GOOGLE HOME
Scan one of the QR codes below with your smart phone camera to download the 3rd party Smart Life app, follow the instructions to activate the app to control your light with Alexa or Google Home.
USING THE REMOTE CONTROL
Batteries NOT included. Uses (2) AAA batteries
NOTE: Batteries have a lifespan and we cannot control how long our product will sit in inventory at Amazon. Therefore, we did not want a customer to receive a new product with a dead battery.
TROUBLESHOOTING THE REMOTE CONTROL
RF signals are easily interfered by many signals in the air such as cell phone and Wi-Fi signals. If your remote is not responding try moving to a different location and retry. If the signal is still not being received, hold the remote next to the smart pool light control box, this allows the RF signal to use the wiring inside the box as an antenna to reach the light. You can also put the remote in the included watertight bag. Take the remote under the water right in front of the light lens, this will allow you to change the light modes.
