NOTE:  You can download and install the free Wemo App from the App Store® for iOS devices or Google Play™ for Android™ devices.

Installing the light strips to your desired location
Step 1:  Measure the area where you want to place the light strips.  Each strip is 2 feet long, maximum of 20 feet per power supply.

Step 2:  If the light strip is too long, you can shorten the end by cutting at one of the points indicated by the scissor icon. 

NOTE:  Each light strip has two connectors, one on each end.  Once you cut the light strip, the cut section can no longer be rejoined together and extending or adding more light strips to the cut ends is not possible.  If you wish to add more light strips in the future, you can detach the shortened light strip and connect new ones.

Step 6:  After the Wemo Link is set up, it will start scanning for the light strip.  Make sure the light strip is turned ON.  Once detected, it will appear on the list with a checkmark.

QUICK TIP:  When a light strip has been detected, it will flash for a few seconds.  Also, 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.

NOTE:  The light strips must be on default settings (not paired to any other Wemo Link).  If they were previously connected to a Wi-Fi and you need to set them up again, you will need to reset the light strips so they can once again be detected.  To learn how to reset the light strips, click here.

Step 7:
  Tap Add to pair the light strip to the Wemo Link.  You should then see the success screen in the Wemo  App.

NOTE:  Any light strip discovered on this screen will appear with a checkmark.  If you do not want to add a light strip, just tap it to uncheck it.

Step 8:
Rename your light strip or change its picture field and then tap Save
You can also leave them as is and change it next time.
