Using the SIMPLEconnect Wi-fi app with your Wi-fi-enabled fan
Q. How do I schedule an event for my fan and lights?
A. While in the app, select the scheduling icon from the control page. Tap the "+" symbol to add a new event. Set the fan and/or light on to the desired days of the week and time of day for this event. When you're done, tap "set."
Q. What is “security,” and how do I turn it on?
A. “Security” is a function that turns the ceiling fan’s light(s) on and off randomly from 6pm to 10pm to give the perception that your house is occupied. To turn on this feature, select the scheduling icon. Tap the “badge” security icon. Select the desired days of the week and tap “Set.”
Q. How do I set the sleep timer?
A. Select the timer icon. Push the light and/or fan button to “On.” Select the desired length of time. Tap “Start.”
Q. How do I dim my light?
A. The light bulb icon in the SIMPLEconnect WiFi app allows you to turn the fan's light on and off. On the side you'll see an icon that says "Dim." Selecting this button reveals the dimming slider, allowing you to make a light level selection. The light level is indicated by the number of green bars.
Q. How do I change the speed of my fan?
A. The fan icon (below the light bulb icon) turns the fan on and off. On the side of this you'll see an icon that says "speed." Selecting this reveals the fan speed slider, allowing you to changed the fan speed. The fan speed is indicated by the number of green bars.
Q. How do I reverse the fan's direction?
A. Simple! Below your light and fan icons is an icon that says "reverse." Select this to change your fan's direction, depending on if you want the fan to cool you or circulate warm air around the room.
Q. I placed a single fan with dimming functions in multiple “Rooms” within the app and now the dimming function does not work. How do I fix this?
A. The dimming toggle must be enabled for the fan in every “Room” that it is located in within the app.
Q. How can I change which room I use to control my fan in in the app?
A. Under "Device Settings," tap the "Change Room" button on the bottom of the screen. Select the room you want to move your fan to. Once you do that, tap "Move fan to new room" to confirm your selection.
You can also select "Add new room" to create a new room for the device.
Q. My light was dimming, and now it’s not. How do I fix this?
A. Did you recently add your ceiling fan to another “Room” in your app? If you paired your fan to another “Room,” make sure the fan “Dimming Mode” is enabled in that “Room” also. The dimming toggle must be enabled for the fan in every “Room” it belongs to in the app for the dimming to work properly.
Q. How do I know when I'm connected to my SIMPLEconnect fan through the app?
A. Pay attention to the icons on the top right of your iOS device: The blue icon with a house means your iOS device and fan are on the same network. The green icon means your iOS device and fan are connected through the server. The red icon with the WiFi symbol topped with an encircled "X" means you are disconnected (this icon could bean your fan is turned off or you are not connected to a network).
