If your home features a LittleBird-enabled light switch, you can turn your lights on and off, adjust the brightness of your lights, and create schedules for your lights in the LittleBird mobile app.

Find your smart light

  1. Open the LittleBird mobile app on your mobile device.

  2. Browse to the My Home (house) icon in the navigation bar.

  3. Under the Light and Locks section, look for the smart lights you wish to control. Each of your smart lights will have a light bulb icon next to them.

Note: Your lights may be labeled based on their location (ie, Living Room Light, Bedroom Light, etc). 

Check the status of your lights

If your smart lights are off, the light bulb icon will appear faded and the indicator label under the lights’ name will read Off

If your smart lights are on, the light bulb icon will appear illuminated and the indicator label under the lights’ name will read On

Turn your light on or off

If your lights are off, tap the lights’ panel to turn them on and update the status in the mobile app to On.

If your lights are on, tap the lights’ panel to turn them off and update the status in the mobile app to Off.
