Setup Instructions | Red Series RGBW Smart Bulb - SmartThings

IMPORTANT: If you are here because you want to associate your bulb directly to your light switch via Z-Wave, please follow the instructions to pair this bulb non-securely (also make sure your switch is paired non-securely).

While we try to keep this article up to date, it’s often hard due to the many updates of both our firmware and SmartThings firmware. If any updates/edits need to be made to this article, please comment on this thread: Wiki - General Feedback/Suggestions Thread

Overview

This page will discuss how to setup your Red Series RGBW Smart Bulb on the SmartThings platform (hardware made by Samsung or Aeotec).

Make: Inovelli (or Ilumin)
Model #: LZW42
Amazon ASIN: B07VGB8Q61
UPC: 850007431006


Prerequisites

For the best experience, we recommend downloading and installing the Inovelli device handler for your bulb.

To access the device handler page as well as instructions, please see the below links:

IMPORTANT: Your smart bulb must have constant power in order to work. If you are putting your smart bulb on a, “dumb” switch, you will need to make sure your, “dumb” switch remains in the on position.


Inclusion / Pairing Instructions

Depending on the firmware version you have, there may be a couple of ways to pair your smart bulb.

  • Firmware Version 2.31 and above = Non-Secure and S0
  • Firmware Version 2.30 and below = S0 Only

NOTE: If you would like to take advantage of, “Smart Bulb Mode”, you will need to be on firmware version 2.31 and the bulb (and switch) will need to be paired without security (ie: non-secure).

Non-Secure Inclusion Method

Use this method if you want your smart bulb to be directly associated (via Z-Wave) with your Inovelli switch (dimmer, on/off, or fan/light) or if you prefer to include without security (sometimes your network can be faster without security).
