How can I map my lights?

Life’s in 3D. So should be your creations.
We want your effects to be wonderful and ready to surprise you day after day.
Our latest patent for advanced 3D reconstruction allows you to map your layout from multiple different angles till it reaches the point of perfection with a perfect 3D layout as a result!
Now have fun painting your effects directly on your real-life canvas, LED by LED you will be able to add your brushstrokes to your masterpiece!
We gave you the recipe, the only ingredient to add is your fantasy!

LET’s START!

If you’re installing a string of lights, this process allows the application to locate the LEDs in the room and map them. This way you will create a CUSTOM LAYOUT and you will be able to apply the most advanced effects to your Smart Decoration.

If you’re installing a Pre-Lit tree the mapping will allow you to apply the most beautiful effects designed specifically for this product.

This step is recommended but not necessary if you are installing a Wall / Curtain / Icicle. This operation is not possible on objects such as Reindeers, Snowmen, Wreaths, and Garlands.

  • Start-up and Selection of the type of mapping

Access the “Layout” menu and accept the permission required by the application to access your smartphone’s camera.
Choose the type of mapping you want to do.
Some options may  depend on the device you are using  and  on the status of your device (online/offline).

     

  •  2D Mapping

This kind of mapping is recommended for installations where the lights are predominantly on a single surface.
The algorithm will automatically identify the position of the LEDs located on the sides and back of the holder, estimating their position.
Start the process by clicking on “Mapping” and select “2D Mapping”: the LEDs will start flashing quickly and the magic begins!
The mapping ends when the LEDs are on a fixed color. It’s possible to save or repeat the operation.
In case of poor results, a pop-up will indicate the “Poor results” condition and it’s possible to repeat the operation.

  • 3D Mapping 

This innovative method of mapping LEDs allows you to scan the different sections of your installation an unlimited number of times, for a perfect, 360 ° rendering.

During the mapping process the LEDs will appear in 4 different colors, based on their status:

  • RED: they don’t still have space coordinates.
  • ORANGE: the LEDs are recognized for the first time by the camera (XY coordinates)
  • YELLOW: the LEDs are recognized for the second time by the camera.
  • GREEN: the LEDs are completely recognized and in a three-dimensional way (depth coordinates)

When all the LEDs are green, it means that the entire installation has been properly mapped.

 

   

   

Congrats! Your lights have been mapped and the app will show you your actual Layout.
You can choose to keep it or try again!

Prelit Mapping
Pre-lit trees have, as a unique default choice an enhanced 3D mapping, that can map the lights in one single pass.
Please follow the above instruction given for 2D mapping.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. If the camera doesn’t work, please be sure that you gave the app permission to access your camera. 
  2. You can map an entire Join group. If you want to map an Area group  you can map the individual devices first and then create the group or vice versa, depending on your needs, while if you want to make a Sync group you have to map the individual devices first and then create the group.
  3. For the AWW (Gold Edition) the color of the LEDs will change from warm, when not mapped, to cool when mapped, becoming cooler while the mapping is proceeding further. 
  4. This process is available for all generation I and II devices like Strings, Curtain, Icicle, Cluster, Prelit, Festoon, and Home Range devices (Line, Flex)
