Smart Recessed Downlight (RL) - Quick Start Guide

Your HALO Home Smart Downlight can be controlled from your HALO Home App or HALO Home accessories. In this Quick Start Guide you will:

  1. Pair your installed HALO Home Smart Downlight to the HALO Home App.
  2. Learn about additional features and information.

PLEASE NOTE: While HALO Home devices can be used on standard switches, they prefer constant power and then to be controlled wirelessly. To avoid accidental factory resets: install with HALO Home Controllers (Accessory Dimmer or Hardwired Multi-Room Scene Keypad).

II. Additional Smart Downlight Information

Now you can:

Override lighting manually (temporary)

To manually turn on the HALO Home Smart Downlight without using the HALO Home App or Controllers, cycle power to the light one time. The lighting will turn ON to its last known dim level until it receives the next HALO Home App, Controller or voice command.

Reset the HALO Home Smart Downlight to factory settings

ONLY DO THIS STEP IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO REMOVE THE DEVICE USING THE APP.
If removal isn't possible, delete it by clicking "my device is broken" and then do the factory reset steps:

To reset the HALO Home Smart Downlight back to factory settings:

  • Using either a standard wall switch, circuit breaker, or the air gap switch on an Accessory Dimmer cycle power:
    • Repeat this pattern 4 times:
      • Turn OFF for 2 second
      • Turn ON for 5 seconds
  • After a brief delay, the HALO Home Smart Downlight will flash twice to indicate a successful reset.

Dimming

  • The HALO Home Smart Downlight will dim from 100% to 5%
  • Dimming must be done either with the app or with HALO Home dimmers and accessories

Adjusting Color Temperature

Use the mobile app to adjust the color temperature (CCT) of your Downlight(s). (The HALO Home Smart Downlight has a CCT range of 2700K to 5000K.)

Power cycle behavior

  • An unpaired HALO Home Smart Downlight will turn lighting ON to 100% and will flash twice if power is cycled. 
  • A paired HALO Home Smart Downlight will turn ON to the last known dim level (If the lighting was OFF previous to the power cycle, lighting will turn ON when power is restored)
