How do I use the timer?
Within the HomeBrite® App you can count down by setting a specific amount of time to turn a bulb or group on or off.
To set a timer:
1) In the HomeBrite app, go to wheel view. Use the top right Context Menu to change views.
2) Touch the “Start Timer” button located directly under the dimming wheel.
3) Select the amount of time you desire.
If the power is on, the timer will count down to turn the bulb or group off. If the power is off, the timer will count down to turn the bulb or group on.
How do I connect the bulbs?
HomeBrite bulbs connect to your tablet or mobile device via our app. To start, download the HomeBrite® app
Install your HomeBrite bulbs. Turn on your HomeBrite® lights (your lights will blink one time when they are ready to connect). Open the HomeBrite® app, choose a secure PIN key and the app will begin to pair with your HomeBrite® bulbs. No hub, remote, gateway, Wi-Fi, or cellular signal is required to control your lights!
How do I delete a bulb or groups?
Deleting a light bulb or group is the same procedure. To delete bulbs, make sure the app has light bulbs opened. To delete groups, make sure the app has groups opened.
1) Open the HomeBrite app.
2) Go to 'Light Bulbs' or ‘Groups’ from the top left 'Main Menu.'
NOTE: Be sure the app is in wheel view. To toggle between wheel and list views use the top right 'Context Menu' (the 3 dots).
3) Swipe left and right to the desired bulb or group.
4) Press the top right 'Context Menu' and select 'Delete Bulb' or ‘Delete Group’.
This will remove the bulb or group from the app allowing it to be set up again. If deleting a group, the group will be deleted and all bulbs tied to that group will have the deleted group removed.
Note: If this is the only HomeBrite bulb set up, you would not be able to delete the bulb, due to the app must be connected to a HomeBrite bulb to be opened. If you are looking to reset a single bulb that is the only one set up, you will only need to hard reset the bulb and reinstall the app.
How do I delete a schedule?
Swipe the schedule to the left and a red delete button will appear to the right. Press ‘Delete’ and confirm the deletion.
How do I configure scenes?
1) Go to ‘Groups’ from the top left main menu.
NOTE: Be sure you are in ‘Wheel View’ - a big wheel in the middle of the screen. If you are in ‘List View’, where it shows all your groups in a list, then press the top right context menu (the 3 dots) and select ’View as wheel’.
2) Select 'Configure Scene' (bottom of the screen).
This shows all light bulbs in that group. The power icon to the right needs to be green for the bulb to power on for that group, and the slider to the left is the dimmer.
3) Set the dimmer level for all bulbs within the Group.
4) Press ‘Save’ or ‘Done’ on the top right.
Once the configure scene has been set, every time this group is powered on either via the group or a schedule, it will always power on at the dim level set.
Can I control multiple bulbs with multiple devices?
To share the bulb configuration between multiple devices, you will need to create an account first, then you can share the configuration.
One important key note is there is a limit to the number of apps that can run at once and it is equal to the number of bulbs set up. While you can have an infinite number of devices with access to the HomeBrite account, if there is only 1 HomeBrite bulb set up then only 1 app can run at a time. If the app is fully closed (force closed), then it will allow a different device access.
If there are 2 HomeBrite bulbs set up then 2 apps can run at once, 3 HomeBrite bulbs can have 3 apps running at once and so on. The proper way to close any app that controls hardware (in this case the HomeBrite bulb) is to force close the app. This will completely close the app and stopping all signals going out from the app. At the end of this email will also be the force close procedure, this is how any app can be closed on a smart-phone/tablet.
