Cloud control to Major Tom! With ELA’s cloud control you can control your lights from anywhere in the world as long as you’re connected to the internet. This is great if you’d like to control your smart LED lights remotely. On vacation? At the office? Or even across the street. Your lights controls can be at your fingertips no matter where your fingertips are.
To enable cloud control, first register for an ELA account. This can be done from the “Settings” section of the ELA app or by selecting the profile icon in the upper left-hand corner.
You will also need to bridge your ELA Smart Hub to your home or office Wi-Fi.
Once these two processes are completed, enabling cloud control is only a few steps away!
Go back to the “settings” section in the ELA app and select “Cloud Control.”
Before linking your account, select the “+” icon at the top right.
Here you will create and name your network. By default, your security code is “admin.” This can be changed in the settings later. You can name your network anything you’d like but “home” or something similar works for clarity.
Your network is now connected to the cloud!
Okay, we’ve gone through all that and you should be good to go to control your ELA lights from anywhere in the universe as long as you’re connected to the internet. Select “cloud control” from the ELA app and you’ll be presented with the following screen.
By selecting “Control,” you will have the ability to control the mood setting of your lights or the rooms. With the “mood control” you can set a different lighting scheme to apply to your lights. With the “room” control you can view the room statement which will show you which lights in that room are on or off; or turn your lights on or off.
With the ELA smart lighting app, your lights are never more than a fingertip away. With cloud control, you’re even more connected. Turn lights on and off remotely, from anywhere in the world, as long as you’re connected to the internet. Useful for last-minute trips, vacations, or to scare the kids while you’re not home!
However you choose to use cloud control, doing so is easy with your ELA app.
