The zones can be grouped by dragging a zone mark on top of another.  

Zone grouping

To ungroup, tap the group mark and drag a zone to separate. 

Ungrouped zone

An animated light pattern can be assigned to a selected zone or group by using the scrolling effect selector. 

Light pattern

When using a solid light pattern, the slider can be used to adjust brightness. In Breath or Strobe pattern, the slider can be used to adjust pattern speed.

The camera button can be used to set a light color captured by the camera. For example, you can point the camera at an object like the vehicle body paint, and the lights will set to the color detected in the camera. Note: A highly saturated color works best. 

Camera

Click the “+” button in the bottom-right corner to open more lighting options. 

More menu

From this page, you can add currently selected colors as “Add to Favor,” which allows for future quick access. You can also save currently selected colors as the default colors when powered on. The default function enables your default lights to turn on immediately upon vehicle startup. 

Lighting Themes

Preset themes

From this page you can select pre-built multicolor themes. Each theme is represented with its assigned colors and changing patterns. To customize a pre-built theme, click the “i” icon in the top-right corner of each theme. You can also click the “New” button in the top-left corner of the screen to create a new theme. 

The zone marks at the top of the page act as a checkbox.

By default, both zones are selected. You can click one of them to unselect a zone, which will assign a theme only to the selected zone. Using this method, the two zones can run different themes, as shown below. 

Two themes

Edit Themes
From the Edit Theme page, you can edit or create themes. 

Edit preset theme
 
Up to 10 colors can be selected within a theme. One pattern can be selected. You can adjust light speed and brightness. The theme shown at the top of the edit page will display a live preview as you make selections. 

Music

Music mode

The Music page has two modes: Mic and Song, shown in the top-left corner of the screen. The default is Mic mode, which allows the color and brightness to dance to the sound heard through the mic. In mic mode, you can adjust the sensitivity based on the ambient sound for best light-changing dynamics. 

Click the mode button to switch to Song mode. In Song mode, the sensitivity bar is switched to song control bar. 

music controls
 
Note: In song mode, music streaming apps like Apple Music®, Spotify® and Pandora® are not supported. In iOS®, songs can only be played which have been purchased through iTunes®. On Android® phones, the song must be an individual file that exists on the phone. 

In Single Color mode, the color of LED remains the same, and the brightness will dance to the sound. In Multi Color mode, both color and brightness will dance to the sound. 

Single Color and Multi Color mode
 
To change colors, click the “+” in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Motion
The Motion page allows light dynamics to be synced to the movement of the vehicle rather than sound. 

Motion

The default for this page is Acceleration mode, which changes lights according to the movement sensed by the phone connected to the lights. When the phone is in the vehicle, the light syncs to the acceleration of the vehicle. To simulate vehicle movement, shake the phone. By switching to speed mode, the light will change to the speed detected through the phone’s GPS.
