When does this apply?
This should only apply when your Brilliant is directly connected to at least one LIFX device on the circuit.
LIFX device(s) require power to control over WiFi. What currently can happen with a regular non-Brilliant light switch is that flipping the switch will shut off power to the bulb, causing the LIFX device to become uncontrollable.
This issue is avoided when your Brilliant is directly connected to a LIFX device, as it allows you to provide constant power to the LIFX device and maintain control over it. Follow the instructions below to ensure that you have the proper setup.
How should you set up your Brilliant?
- Set up your light as an "Always On" light with directions here.
- Add your LIFX Devices as noted here.
- Adjust your gesture and slider settings as preferred for your LIFX configuration.
- Go back to the Home Screen. Swiping up/down on your touchscreen OR Slider (as you customized) should now control your LIFX device.
