Smart Wi-Fi Lighting
FAQs and Trouble Shooting Tips
How do I set up and install the lights?
Screw the light into a socket and turn it on. The light should start blinking indicating that the bulb is in pairing mode and ready for installation. If they are not blinking turn the light on for one second and off for one second, three consecutive times. When the light flashes rapidly, it is ready for setup. Then open up the Feit Electric app, connect to a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network and follow the instructions in the app.
I am having trouble connecting my Smart Light to Wi-Fi.
- Make sure the Wi-Fi network is a 2.4 GHz network. The Smart Wi-Fi Light will not connect to a 5 GHz network. If your Smart Wi-Fi Light is already on the right frequency, make sure that your phone is not using a VPN app in the background.
- Test your Wi-Fi network with other devices such as your phone to make sure it is operating properly and has strong coverage.
- The Wi-Fi connection may not have good coverage during setup. You may need to improve your Wi-Fi network coverage by upgrading your router or adding a range extender.
- Your Wi-Fi network password is case sensitive, make sure you are entering it correctly.
- The light must be blinking rapidly to connect. If it is not blinking rapidly turn the light on for one second and off for one second, three consecutive times. When the light is flashing rapidly, it is ready for setup
