How to connect Osram Bulbs

Light up your smart home automatically or with the touch of a button using Osram Bulbs and SmartThings.


The following Osram Bulbs can be connected with SmartThings:

  • Osram Smart Dimmable LED Light Bulb E27 RGBW
  • Osram CLASSIC B Tunable White
  • Osram E14 Tunable White
  • Osram GU10 Tunable White
  • Osram GU10 RGBW
  • Osram Flex RGBW strips


To connect the Osram Bulb with the SmartThings Hub

Note: Osram Bulbs previously connected to the Osram Gateway must first be disconnected from the Gateway before they can connect with the SmartThings Hub.

In the SmartThings mobile app:

  1. Tap My Home
  2. Under Things, tap Add a Thing at the bottom of your Things list
  3. The app will say Looking for devices…
  4. While the Hub searches, install the bulb and turn it ON
  5. The light will blink to indicate it is ready to be paired
  6. When the device is discovered, it will be listed at the top of the screen
  7. Tap the device to rename it and tap Done
  8. When finished, tap Save
  9. Tap Ok to confirm


To reset the Osram Bulb

If the Osram Bulb is not discovered or is not performing as expected, you may need to reset the bulb and/or remove and reconnect it with the SmartThings Hub.


To remove the bulb via the SmartThings app:

  1. Tap My Home
  2. Tap Things
  3. Tap the device you wish to remove
  4. Tap the gear icon
  5. Tap Remove
  6. Confirm removal (this cannot be undone)


To physically reset the Osram Bulb, run five power cycles as detailed below (a power cycle is the act of turning something on and off).

Note: To turn the Osram Bulb on and off: Turn it on and off with the wall switch, OR unscrew it by hand.

  1. Turn ON the light for 5 seconds
  2. Turn OFF the light for 5 seconds
  3. Repeat this process 5 times (ON for 5 seconds + OFF for 5 seconds = 1 time)
  4. After the fifth time, switch the light ON and wait 10 seconds
  5. The light will then blink 3 times if successfully reset
  6. Repeat the process if the light doesn’t blink


Once the Osram Bulb is reset, repeat the first set of steps above to connect it with SmartThings.


Note: Osram bulbs have a known firmware issue that can occasionally cause them to fail as ZigBee repeaters. This can potentially cause other ZigBee devices to fail to update and/or respond. For more information on how to strengthen your ZigBee network, check out this guide.
