How to Connect LED Lights to Phone? – Overview

Learning how to connect LED lights to your smartphone is a good starting point if you’re a homeowner interested in smart home tech.

When you connect LED lights to your smartphone, you can create a welcoming atmosphere in your home.

At home, lighting has grown substantially from conventional light bulbs that can only be controlled manually to LED lights that you can connect to your smartphone.

When you have smart LED lights in your home, you can easily transform your regular home into a smart one.

One of the biggest benefits of smart LED lights is that you can connect them to your smartphone via an app.

The app allows you to adjust lighting based on the activity happening, time of day, and any other parameters you pick.

Your smartphone can signal the lights via the app and WiFi, instructing them to turn on and off or change colors.

Now let’s go ahead and look at the steps of connecting LED lights to your smartphone.

For this review, we’ll focus on LePro LED strip lights; but the process is relatively similar for all LED lights manufactured by other brands.

1. If you’re an Android or iPhone user, you can go to the Play Store or App Store and download the LePro LampUX app on your phone and sign up for an account.

2. Next, turn on the LED strip lights and wait about 10 seconds. 

3. Now, hold down the button on the strip light controller for about 5 – 10 seconds, and the lights will start to flicker quickly.

Also, if you’ve already downloaded the LePro LampUX app on your smartphone and added your smart LED lights, you can click on ‘Auto Scan’ mode in the app and search for your LED lights.

Note you need to enable fast flicker mode.

Keep in mind that LePro LampUX products only function with 2.4Ghz WiFi networks.

If you have a dual-band router with 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, ensure you select the 2.4Ghz network when setting up your LED lights. 

Set LED Lights Timer Using Your Phone

After adding your LED lights in the app, either via ‘AP Mode’ or ‘EZ Mode,’ click on the lights icon in the app, and you’ll see a ‘Timer’ switch.

The timer switch will help you automatically set automation, such as lights turning on and off. Once you’ve added your automation, click ‘Save.’

If you’d like to set schedules, click on the ‘Schedule’ button to add some.

Final Thought

As you can see, controlling smart LED lights with your smartphone is relatively easy.

However, keep in mind that most of these smart LED lights have dedicated smartphone apps to control them, and this is what you need to download.
