  • Your Lightbulbs must be on default settings (not paired to any other Wemo Link) so that it can be detected by the Wemo App.  If the Lightbulb was previously connected to a network and you need to reconfigure it, you will need to reset the Lightbulb so they can get detected again.
  • When a Lightbulb has been detected you will see it flash for a few seconds.
  • By default they will appear in order as detected by the name:  Osram Lightify Flex RGBW 01, Osram Lightify Flex RGBW 02, and so on. 
  • Any Lightbulb discovered in this screen will appear with a check mark.   If you do not want to add the Lightbulb, just tap it to uncheck it.
Your Lightbulb has now been successfully added.
