Point Mode Tips & Tricks (Smart Remote X only)

Before you start setting locations for your devices, scenes and groups of lights, please read this important Point Mode overview.

How to set a location

• Select the device, service, scene or group you want to locate and press and hold its icon in Smart Remote’s carousel.

• Smart Remote will ask you to hold the remote in the precise location you want to point at to control the selected item (usually right next to the device you want to locate or below it if it's on the ceiling). 



Height doesn’t matter

Point Mode is a 2D technology. If you set a location on your ceiling and another one right below it on your floor, Smart Remote will recognize both points as the same location.

You never need to climb on a ladder to set a location.  


Don't locate all your devices

• Create and locate AV Scenes instead of locating every device connected to your TV.

• Create and locate groups of lights instead of locating every individual light. 


Choose one location for things close together

Set one location for all items within 6 feet (2m) of one another.

Example: When locating AV Scenes or devices connected to your TV, set the location for each item at the center of your TV. 



Control things close together

When you point Smart Remote at a location that’s been set for multiple items, you can choose which item you want to control by swiping in the carousel. 

You’re ready!

Now pick up Smart Remote and locate your first item.
