Cree Connected LED Bulb

The Cree Connected LED Bulb is a ZigBee-based, dimmable LED bulb that you can control using SmartThings. What appears to be an ordinary light is actually an advanced device that can transform your home into a fully functional smart home.

Control the light directly from your phone, configure it to automatically greet you when you come home from work, or brighten it slowly to wake you up naturally in the morning. When receiving power, this bulb will act as a signal repeater to extend the range of your ZigBee mesh network.

 

 

To connect the Cree Connected LED Bulb with SmartThings

First, install the Cree Connected LED Bulb (BA19-08027OMF-12CE26-1U100) in a lamp or light fixture. The switch to the lamp or fixture should remain OFF at this time.

Then, 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, turn ON the Cree bulb
  5. Wait up to 2 minutes for the bulb to be discovered
  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 Cree Connected LED Bulb

If the Cree bulb was not discovered, you may need to reset the device before it can successfully connect with the SmartThings Hub.

  1. Make sure the bulb is installed and turned ON
  2. In the SmartThings app, tap My Home
  3. Turn the bulb OFF for 2 seconds, and then turn it ON for 1 second*
  4. Repeat the step above three more times for a total of four OFF/ON cycles
  5. After the fourth cycle, the bulb should then blink to indicate it has been reset
  6. Turn the bulb OFF (do not wait for more than about a second here)
  7. Now back in the SmartThings app, under Things, tap Add a Thing at the bottom of your Things list
  8. The app will say Looking for devices…
  9. Turn the bulb ON
  10. The app should discover the bulb within a few moments

*NOTE: Try to time this as consistently as possible. If exactly 2 seconds between ON and OFF events isn't showing results, try approximately 1.5 seconds instead of 2.
