Before pairing the iDevices Dimmer Switch to your Wi-Fi® network, ensure that your Wi-Fi® network is running on a 2.4 GHz b/g/n Wi-Fi band and using WPA or WPA2-Personal security with AES encryption. If you have multiple wireless networks such as a guest network, a 2.4 GHz network, and a 5 GHz network. Please connect your phone or tablet to the 2.4 GHz network for initial set-up. HomeKit accessories can not be set-up on Guest Networks. Download the latest iDevices Connected App here:
Connecting Your Wall Switch
Wireless Communication Setup:
The wireless setup is a two-step process for a 3-way Dimmer Switch configuration. First, you will pair the Primary Dimmer Switch to the Secondary Dimmer Switch, then you will add the Primary Dimmer Switch to your Wi-Fi® network.
STEP 1: Ensure power/breaker is turned back ON and the LED on both Dimmer Switches are solid purple.
STEP 2: Locate the Primary Switch. Hold “6” until the LED rapidly flashes blue (3 seconds) then release. Next tap “1” to enter pairing mode. The LED will slowly flash blue.
Next, locate the Secondary Switch. Repeat the steps above on the Secondary Switch by holding “6” until the LED rapidly flashes blue (3 seconds) then release. Next tap “1” to begin the pairing mode. The LED will flash blue slowly.
The Secondary Dimmer Switch will search and pair to the Primary Dimmer Switch. The LED on each Dimmer Switch will rapidly blink green 5 times and each Dimmer Switch will beep 5 times to indicate the pairing process is complete.
Connecting To The Wireless Network:
STEP 1: On the Primary Switch press and hold “6” for 3 seconds and release when the LED rapidly flashes blue. Next Tap “2” to begin the Wi-Fi® connection process.
STEP 2: Launch the iDevices® Connected app and you will be guided through the process of connecting your wall switches. For iOS devices, you will need the HomeKit™ setup code on the pull out tab of your Primary Dimmer Switch
When opening the iDevices Connected app for the first time, several prompts will appear on the screen.
