The Smart Bridge works with your Wi-Fi, and therefore you must create an account in the app in order to use the functionalities the Bridge provides. The account is free. Be sure that the Nordlux Smart Bridge is powered. Click on the + in the right corner of the app and select 'Products'. The Nordlux Smart App is now searching for new products.

If you are experiencing any problems when connecting Nordlux Smart Bridge to your Wi-Fi or the Nordlux Smart App, here are some information that could help solve your problems. Firstly, it is important that your Wi-Fi is working as it should. Try restarting your Wi-Fi router and/or your Nordlux Smart Bridge, and make sure your phone/tablet is updated. You can reset your bridge by pressing the reset button three times, with a 2 second interval. The indication lamp should then start blinking, and your bridge is now reset.
Secondly, it is important to note that the bridge works with 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi SSID (SSID is the name of your wireless internet). It should be exclusively 2.4 GHz, and not shared 2.4 /5 GHz. If it is 5 GHz or shared 2.4 /5 GHz, the bridge will not connect. You can check which Wi-Fi frequency you have through your phone or tablet, or by downloading an app which can do this (Ex. NetSpot – Wifi Analyzer).
Here is a guide to how you can use your smartphone hotspot, instead of your Wi-Fi router:
1. Use smartphone A to be a hotspot, and then use another smartphone B to pair the Bluetooth Mesh network.
2. Find the Nordlux Smart bulb and add it into the app.
3. Find the Nordlux Smart Bridge and add it into the app via the hotspot signal, instead of the Wi-Fi router. You would need to open the Wi-Fi function, and connect it to the hotspot signal.
Two important things:
1. Smartphone A needs to have the hotspot on constantly, and it cannot be to far away from the bridge when connecting it.
2. The hotspot for smartphone A needs to be a 2.4 GHz signal, not 5 Ghz.

SW release 1.9.1 and 1.9.2 have had some serious errors.
This is a temporary quick fix, in order to solve these errors.
What does it do:
The Smart Light App data will be permanently deleted, but the Smart Light App will afterwards work correctly.
As the Smart Light App data will be permanently deleted, the setting data of bulbs, sensor, remote, Rooms, scheduling, etc will be lost.
So the setup of bulbs, sensor, remote, Rooms, scheduling, etc, must be manually entered again.
Guide to clearing the Data of Smart Light App:
Make sure that your family members/guests are not logged into the same account as you. In this case, please ask them to sign out and create a new account or sign into their own account. Then you can share the light control as described above.
