Activate Point Mode

Point Mode gives you instant access to your devices, services, scenes and groups by simply pointing. To use this feature, you need to install the three Room Sensors that came with your Smart Remote kit and activate Point Mode.

After you have added your devices on Smart Remote and installed your Room Sensors, the next step is to activate Point Mode and then teach Smart Remote where your devices are located and where you want to point to access your scenes and groups. (Please note: you must locate at least two items in different areas of the room to use Point Mode). For best results, we recommend following the steps below in the order presented.

  1. Activate Point Mode on Smart Remote.

    1. On Smart Remote, swipe or tap in the carousel at the top of the screen to navigate to the Settings icon on the far right.

    2. Select “Point & Control system”  

    3. Press the “Activate Point & Control system” button

    4. When you are ready to start press “Confirm”

    5. Smart Remote will first check the placement of your Room Sensors and Charging Base to make sure they can all see each other. Please check the Troubleshooting links below if you encounter any issues at this step.

    6. When Smart Remote confirms that the placement of your Room Sensors and Charging Base are good, Smart Remote will ask you to finalize your calibration. Press “Start” to being this process.

    7. Go to the center of your room and point Smart Remote at the Room Sensor that is  blinking blue. Press the arrow button on Smart Remote while pointing at the Room Sensor blinking blue. The light on the Room Sensor should change from blinking blue to solid green.

    8. Point Smart Remote at the next Room Sensor that is blinking blue and press the arrow button while pointing. The light on the Room Sensor should change from blinking blue to solid green at the Room Sensor.

    9. Point Smart Remote at the last Room Sensor that is blinking blue and press the arrow button while pointing at the Room Sensor. All three Room Sensors should now be solid green

    10. Your calibration is complete. Press “finish” to exit.

  2. Decide which device, service, scene or group to locate.

    1. Swipe or tap through the carousel on Smart Remote to find the item you want to locate. If you have not yet added the item, please do so using the Smart Remote app.

  3. Create a location for the item you selected

    1. Press and hold the icon in the carousel for the item you want to locate until a “Locate” button appears.  

    2. Walk over to the location you want to create and hold Smart Remote in the precise location you want to point at to control this item. If you are locating an individual device or an infrared (IR) device, hold Smart Remote within 6 inches (15cm) of the device you want to locate. If you are locating an item that is on the ceiling, just hold Smart Remote underneath the item.

    3. It does not matter how high or low you hold Smart Remote when locating an item.

    4. Consider locating A/V Scenes, Home Scenes, and groups of lights instead of locating each and every individual device you add to Smart Remote. You should only locate individual devices that you want instant access to in Point Mode.

    5. Press Locate.

Repeat the above steps for all of the devices, services, scenes, and groups you want to locate and use in Point Mode.

Troubleshooting:

  • Smart Remote doesn’t see one, two or three of my Room Sensors

  • Smart Remote doesn’t see my Charging Base

  • None of my Room Sensors is blue blinking when starting calibration
