Connectivity, setup and troubleshooting.

Like many devices, LIFX lights connect to the 2.4Ghz band of Wi-Fi not 5Ghz. If you have more than one available network on your router this could mean you are connected to 5Ghz and need to try your other network. All Wi-Fi routers have a 2.4 GHz band so if you only have one network you will be on the right one to get started.

Turn the light off and on at the switch 5 times, about one switch a second (not too fast). The lights will cycle through four colours or whites and stop on white when the reset has been successful. This is how you would remove a light from a network to then add it to a new one. Learn More
