FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
1. Important Stuff! Things to Remember about Flex?
- Do not install Flex on a dimmer switch/circuit.
- Flex needs a strong Wi-Fi signal to operate. Don’t move it outside of your router’s effective range.
- Flex works with 2.4 & 5GHz Wi-Fi signals.
- Each Flex bulb could only be bound with one registered account.
- The same account could be used on different mobile devices at the same time. 1 bulb can only be connected in one Scene.
- Make sure your Wi-Fi router allows full internet access for new devices and check that the roules or restrictions are set as open as possible. Restrictions can cause troubles with the connection. Also keep in mind that time profiles set in the router might influence the connectivity.
- Please check which Wi-Fi you connect the Flex bulb to – it should be the original router - just in case you are using Wi-Fi repeaters or boosters.
2. What is the recommended distance between the Wi-Fi router and the Flex bulb? I am going to install one in the other room of my house.
The distance between your Home Wi-Fi router and the Flex bulb could vary with network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, network interference and network overhead.
If the Flex bulb is under an ideal environment with the Wi-Fi Router, for example, near line of sight, well within the Wi-Fi Router signal coverage, no obvious obstacles between the Wi-Fi Router and the Flex, etc., then the distance between the home Wi-Fi router and Flex bulb could reach about 35 meters. Of course, with longer distances and more obstacles you will get a weaker Wi-Fi signal from the Flex the farther it is away from the Home Wi-Fi router. That is the reason why sometimes Flex doesn’t work smoothly.
3. Can I install Flex bulb in my bathroom? I always like to listen to some music to relax when taking a shower.
Yes. Flex is humidity resistant. The protection grade of Flex is up to IP43. It is designed to withstand high-humidity, such as in a bathroom with a running shower. However, it is not waterproof or water-resistant. Ensure proper distance between electrical devices and wet areas to prevent risk of electrical shock!
