How to use your Friendship Lamp

The friendship lamp has quite a few functions and they are all controlled with just one sensitive touch button!

Friendship Lamp Functions Explanation
Contact other lamps With a single touch you can contact all the other lamps on your GroupID.
Change colour We have many colours to choose from with our Friendship lamp, when you hold your finger on the touch button, the colour options will start to cycle through. Just hold down until you see the colour you want. The lamp will stay on for another 5 seconds and then turn off.
Turn lamp off If for any reason you would like to stop the lamp shining, you can simply hold down the button for 2 seconds and release and you will turn off the lamp. Please note that if you or your friend touches a Friendship Lamp the lamp will turn on again, so you don’t have to worry about shutting your friend out.
Change WiFi settings Although you will most likely not need to do this, you can enter the WiFi configuration mode by touching the button for around 30 seconds. You will notice that the lamp cycles through all the colours a number of times, but eventually it will turn dim red and stay like that. At this point you can connect to the Friendship Lamp’s Wifi and change the WiFi settings of the GroupID. This may be useful if you want to make sure that the lamps are on the same network if they are not working properly.

 

Colour Codes

The lamp lets you know what it is doing by showing you any of the following colours:

Dim blue – I am just turning on and connecting
Dim red – I am unable to connect to WiFi and I would like to be set up
Dim purple – I am downloading and installing an update, just wait ’till I am swirling green and ready to go!
Swirling green – I am connected and ready to go!
