INTRODUCTION

Powered by STITCH™, the Smart Wi-Fi® RGB Light Bulb allows you to remotely control the brightness and customize the color of your home’s lighting. The free STITCH app for iOS® and Android™ devices uses your home’s existing WiFi network to communicate with the bulb, so you won’t need any separate mesh network hubs or controllers. You can monitor and control the smart bulb 24/7 from anywhere you have an internet connection. This energy efficient bulb consumes only 9 watts of power, but produces up to 800 lumens of brightness, the equivalent of a 60-watt incandescent bulb. Additionally, you can set it to any of more than 16 million colors, making it perfect for creating custom holiday or mood lighting.

Easy Mode Configuration

  3. Plug the lamp into an AC power outlet, then turn on the lamp’s switch. You should see the bulb’s white light pulsing rapidly a few times, this means it is in pairing mode. If it is not pulsing rapidly (i.e., it is solid or pulsing slowly), turn the lamp on/off quickly three times and then leave it on the fourth time. This should reset it and the light should start pulsing rapidly.
  4. Open the STITCH™ by Monoprice™ app, then tap the in the top right corner of the screen. Choose the Others options, then select Smart Bulb.
  5. Confirm you saw the bulb pulse rapidly a few times by tapping Confirm indicator rapidly blink.

  7. Wait for the process to complete, then tap Done.

AP Mode Configuration

Note that the bulb can pulse rapidly or slowly, depending on which Mode is active. Rapid pulsing indicates Easy Mode and slow pulsing indicates AP Mode. To switch modes, quickly turn the bulb on/off three times.
