Section 3- Beginning to use the Orphek application.
In this section we will show you some of the basics of the startup screen. You will be able to use this section to verify connectivity of your lights as you connect them to your home network in section 2 and then you will be able to change a few items on your lights in order to help you use the system more efficiently.
3.1- Ensuring connection and proper time-
You will need to ensure that you are connected to the network and that the lights are on. If you programmed them to your home network then you will need to ensure that your Android device is connected to this network.
If you are connecting directly via wifi socket then please ensure you are connected via wifi to the wifi socket (see section 2.5)
You will also need to ensure that the time on your tablet is correct. Each time that you connect to the lights with your tablet they will receive an update on time. If the time on the tablet is incorrect then the time on the lights will be incorrect.
3.2- Opening the Orphek app on your Android device
Once you open the Orphek application the animated Orphek splash screen will be displayed.
3.3- Searching for the lights on your home network or direct connection
You will need to click on SEARCH to locate your lights on your home network. If your lights do not appear please click the SEARCH button up to 5 times as it goes through all of the potential ip addresses.
In the event that you lost connectivity with one or more lights you can click CLEAR and then SEARCH in this screen to quickly reset your ip info.
3.4- Changing the name of your lights in the Orphek app
3.5- Changing the date format in the Orphek app
There are many options for date formatting in the Orphek app. This feature may be useful with future upgrades to the application. Please note that the date is pulled from the Android system on the device and cannot be changed in the app itself. Only the format can be changed. If the time is incorrect, please update the time on your phone or tablet.
3.6- Entering to the programming/ quickset mode
This is the moment you have been waiting for and where the fun begins. It’s time to start controlling your light!!!!
now you can continue to Section 4
