DON'T BUY!!! The application does not work. This has been the largest waste of cash ever. I'm throwing them in the trash. The setting dont work. It never wanted to connect to the hub and when it did, it did not wish to be place on the setting that i set it to. Season my butt. Please dont waste your cash
The base unit is very difficult to work with and the application is beautiful much garbage. Here are the struggles I have faced and solutions I have tried: 1. The base station does not pick up all the lights. I have it only on the front of my two story house along with the wreath. Total of 9 items. On a amazing day, the base picks up only 6 total. I have tried everything from setting up in a window to putting it outside, nothing works. And they are within the 45 feet range they mention. This is the largest issue for me as all lights must connect to base station to work. There is no Daisy chain to the unreachable lights. 2. Base unit connecting to WiFi. I have a mesh network and it was picking the individual unit as three separate networks. I finally made a fresh network just for the base and that is working a bit better. Still, there are times it doesn't connect to the application at all even when it's only 15-20 feet away from the dedicated router for it. 3. The call to the CS was not helpful at all. They basically said that they will reach out to their technical squad and obtain back in 48 hours. That was about more than two weeks ago and still no response from them. Overall, stay away if you haven't created the investment or haven't place up the lights yet. It's a amazing idea with horrible execution.
I don't know if anyone else is having this problem! The lights sync with the program melody on this app, but does not sync with my own melody files. It will play the melody on blue tooth. The lights will come on to the melody that I have in my file but will not move creatively to the music. They all just stay stable moving in the same advertised pattern and color. I think it's poor the lights do not Sync the same as what's on this application with Christmas songs. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a third party application that works well with these lights? The colors are nice, bit the system does not work well outside this limited app.
This system is a amazing method to obtain started into having a unbelievable light display. I would definitely consider it an All-in-one package. From lights to melody to even the sequencing. And you can control all of it from this app. Now it's not perfect, I did obtain frustrated at first but as long as you have amazing wireless connection signal from where your lights are at you should be good. I have been getting compliments from alot of my neighbors.
Modernize Nov 25, updated the app, worked for one whole day, then hub continues to disconnect. Still needs fixing. Not good application like everyone else says. First off, hub must be close to lights, but disconnects itself randomly, timer resets itself, no on/off switch for lights, light settings you set don't stay set, should be a save button so you know if you have a colour set, or a scene, or pattern or whatever. I was hoping this would work as amazing as my Phillips hue indoor lights, sadly it didn't. They could take a lesson from them to create their application improved. It needs a lot of work. Maybe a third party will create an app, but this season my house is going to have a lot of demo only going on, which drives me crazy. Amazing concept, application needs an overhaul.
For those having issues with the latest update, trying going into settings, apps, tap storage and tap on clear data. Now disconnect data on your phone for the time being. Begin up orchestra of lights application and rerun the set up. You'll have to reconnect to your wireless connection (if your data is on it will not connect while trying to re-set it up). Turn data back on after it's reset. Was having same problems since its modernize and I was going angry trying to figure it out. This resolved it. Writing this company is useless too.
This application has a setting where you can set a timer for the lights but after you set the timer it doesnt lock in your set time. I have tried rebooting the entire system multiple times to no avail. Every day it automatically goes back to the original setting of 9pm to 5pm. Also there is no setting to control the power function on the melody box so it either has to stay on or I have to manually turn it on every night for the lights to dance to the music. Definitely need to fix the bugs.
I read all the reviews prior to purchasing the Hub but figured I had nothing to lose in trying on my own. I connected on my first test and it works flawlessly. Galaxy S8 running with the most latest update. I'm not much of a computer guy, but has anyone loosened up the security a small in their router settings to let this to connect with ease?
Started out working amazing and we were thrilled. But after a week, the application pushed an modernize to the hub and now we can no longer connect to the hub. Furthermore neither can anything else. The lights now act as if they are not connected to anything. I have yet to hear back from their support. Even then, the warranty is laughable. Must have all original packaging along with the proof of purchase. Looks like a couple hundred bucks down the drain. Avoid at all costs!
I bought this light set at Lowes and thought it was an simple method to create a light show. Boy was I wrong!! The tress are a pain to assemble, the melody is beautiful limited and the application to hub connection is the worst. The lights turn on when they're supposed to be off and won't connect when they're supposed to turn on. The part of this experience is that Lowes took everything back with no issues.
1 - Settings dont stick. Once you are out of the application the lights present defaults back to random or default or something besides what you set it at. 2 - No off button. You have to use the timer function to turn them off which [email protected]#$%! and miss as well. 3 - Initial setup is a pain. Had to dig up my old ipad to configure the hub - would not complete setup on my android device 9.0 device. Sad that lowes sells these as their premier light product of the year. Amazing quality lights that look fantastic. Application and execution is a total disaster. Unless you are a total geek and willing to setup a spare smartphone or phone or android device emulator on your PC where the application never closes out I'd recommend to stay far far away.
Ok system. Need some tech skills to obtain this going. Also, it seems quite picky about what type of device you use to connect it. Tried for a couple hours to connect the hub with my Pixel 3XL and it would not work, tried my Samsung Tablet, worked on first try. Hold that in mind if you are having issues. Application does not seem to have a power button for lights? Timer works ok, but somtimes fails or doesn't turn off all lights and I have to restart the timer to create it work again. Works ok overall.
Not sure what's going on with other peoples, but I installed this and it works great! Love the timer and song selection features. Bought it after Halloween, but just in time to set it up and use the Independence Day theme for Veterans Day, set the Thanksgiving theme, and are now onto Christmas! Looking forward to adding more to it each holiday! Hopefully they come out with some preprogrammed Halloween music.
First, search an OLD Android device device to install the application on since it doesn't work well on current versions. Second, don't expect it to play it's melody through your Bluetooth speaker, you have to buy one of theirs or it won't synch the lights and music. And lastly, it won't save the light programming you pick to play so you have to set it every single time it starts and to turn it off you need to set the timer to end a min later than the current time. Honestly, it's not user friendly but it is beautiful if you can obtain it to work. I'm using a 6 year old Dell smartphone running Android device 4.4.2 to run the lights. Android device 9 won't connect. This application needs a LOT of work.
I tried several of the various ways that others wrote in getting their system working and ours still isn't working properly. The hub has a continuous blue blinking light and although the directions say to connect to the orchestra of light wi-fi mine won't, says the connection isn't there, so I use the one I always do and it did work prior to the updates, now it's a pile of non synced items.
All setting are not saved. Timer works at first time but when you reset application all setting went to factory setting. Also application restarting caused LED light on regardless timer setting. Hub works ok but application is Useless. No manual on/off from application or led light itself. You may need another intelligent plug to control it. Not good Lowe shop is closing. They created for Lowe this poor product. Fresh ver updated today but same issue. From app, you don't tell whether hub is connected or not either. Just 0.1 second flick on screen tells hub is connected msg.
UPDATE: Downloaded the fresh update, and now none of the preset lightshows will work. It doesn't matter which one use choose, none of them work. PLEASE FIX! Works as described. I would however really like the opportunity to be able to write your own program with the lights using a song of your choice.
Bought it cant use it!! 1st it looks nothing like the pack it came in. The thing is huge and ugly that I'm looking at right now. 2ndly it won't connect to the wireless connection like its supposed to so i have really beautiful lights that just blink out of control. This I really hate. The only reason they obtain a 2 star rating is that the colors of the annoying hot mess light really are very nice. I bet they would look beautiful damn nice moving to some melody in harmony. Ill never know cuz the shop has no more in stock for me to exchange. It'nt that just grand. Yay orchestra of lights you suck.
This application refuses to connect to my Wi-Fi. I have tried numerous times and restart the hub several times. The hub connects to the phone and the lights but will not connect to home Wi-Fi at all. Rather useless to spend over 100 dollars on something that won't work as advertised.
This application sucks as does the hub it connects to. Not good programming, not good hardware. The setup skips steps leaving you no method to control your VERY expensive lights. The setup sheet tells you to call their 800# before returning to the store. I called. Automated response said to call between 830a and 7p Central. It WAS that time. What they mean to say is that they don't work weekends when most people are setting up their product. Poor product and Lowes should be ashamed to carry it. STAY AWAY!!!
Gemmy has serious issues with app. The timer does not stay set to when you want, in my case the trees and snowflake to go on and off. Help does not even know that timer should turn on lights and melody at set times. Say they are working on issue and was updated two days ago. Same issues after update.
Bought and set up just like instructions say to. Cannot, cannot, cannot sync up to the hub. Have restart hub numerous times and reconnected to internet over and over and hub will not connect. Zero customer service from what I can tell so basically a bit of cash spent for a demo.
Please do not buy the produces associated with this app. This application does not work no matter what I do. The lights are beautiful, but there is entirely no control. I regret spending $1400 on the lights, for them not to work as designed. I would take them back, but I spent three days putting them up.
This application does not work. I tried for hours, with multiple resets, reinstalls, it just won't properly connect to the hub. That mythical "steady light" never appears, the application just crashes or says "oops". There's no even someone to ask for help.
worst lights ever constantly gets disconnected from the hub always have to uninstall reinstall restart after restart after restart won't work won't work then it works for awhile then it disconnects constantly searching for local hub . absolutely no customer service help whatsoever contacted them multiple times their response is modernize was done and it should work fine it doesn't it deserves ZERO stars TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY I took mine back for a refund
This items sucks. First Hub did not even see devices. 2nd hub worked. Now I obtain an modernize and go adjust the volume on my display. Obtain prompted that the hub needs an update. Cant even exit the app. Now after updating application cant connect. Cant restart cant do squat.
READ READ READ if you are having issues. I have no affiliation with OOL. Like others here, I did have my fair share of issues. I was at the point where I bought the Showhome from Home Depot to replace the OOL. After hooking up the Showhome, the OOL is far superior for colors and features. I figured I'd give the OOL one more shot. What I've found is the permissions are crucial, and I mean crucial to create the lights work flawlessly. I heard people using iPhones had less issues, but my main device is an Android. So as a latest shot at getting these to work I uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Most apps in the application shop have a white pop-up to Let or Block permissions. This does not appear for the OOL. You absolutely NEED to go into the permissions with your phones settings and let permissions. With this, you will constantly lose connection to the hub and have the lights randomly do what it wants. Along with the permissions being very important, so is the wireless connection connection. During the wireless connection setup, l you must connect to the OOL wifi. During this step you MUST let OOL to Auto Reconnect. If not, the wireless connection will drop and you will need to restart and begin over. Ever since I allowed permissions and the wifi, the system has been working flawlessly. I went out and purchases an extra $200 worth and will be returning the Showhome. Reason for the 4 stars is the app. Everything does work, but it can definitely use some polishing. Want there was a method to know what present or color is being saved for the show. When you go back into the app, everything is blank, but the settings are saved. Also want there were more prellit shows and want the colors can be custom where we can add 2 or 3 colors of our choice and create it into a light show. One thing to note how some people mentioned that the timer does not work and resets and there is no on/off button. Both of these do work. The timer relies on the zone permissions and will restart if not allowed. The on/off is kind of within the timer. If you are testing your lights outside of the timer like, lets say at 2pm, you can turn on whatever you want. When you are done testing, go into the timer and just press set. This will tell the system to turn on according to the timer. Amazing luck, and again please pay unique attention to permissions and wifi. With this, you will have an perfect setup.
Electric Light Orchestra (hereafter known as ELO) formed in the UK in 1971 and by the end of the '70s was one of the more successful rock bands of the decade. Key founding members Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood (later to form Wizzard), and Bev Bevan, made a rock/pop group that successfully blended classical and rock melody to make a distinctive sound with songs that became FM radio staples. Blending rich harmonies and catchy tunes with unforgettable choruses, ELO quickly established international success. George Harrison and John Lennon are both on record singing ELO’s praises, suggesting that if people wanted to hear fresh Beatles music, they should listen to ELO records. High praise indeed. Hit albums such as Discovery, Out Of The Blue and A Fresh Globe Record contained such hits as Telephone Line, Livin' Thing, Shine A Small Love, Confusion, Turn To Stone and Sweet Talkin' Woman. As the '70s became the '80s, ELO changed both personnel and musical style, somewhat tempering the classical influence and concentrating more on straight-ahead rock. Less successful albums such as Time and Secret Messages, contained hits such as Keep On Tight and Rock And Roll Is King. However, by 1986 Jeff Lynne had had enough and quit. ELO carried on under the direction of Bev Bevan, altering their name to ELO Part II. The level of success enjoyed by the original ELO was not repeated. Lynne then went on to form The Travelling Wilburys, and also released a solo album in 1990. In 2001 Jeff Lynne released Zoom, the first ELO album in 14 years. Although only Lynne and Richard Tandy (keyboards) had ever been in the original ELO, a tour was planned but later cancelled due to not good ticket sales. Perhaps the globe didn't really wish ELO back after all. The unbelievable Zoom DVD was released, and now Region 4 gets another ELO DVD, but this one is quite different. ELO - Out Of The Blue Tour - Live At Wembley 1978/Discovery is an interesting release and is essentially two previously available VHS releases on one shiny disc. This certainly increases the attraction for fans and is added incentive to buy. This 1978 concert, if you believe the back cover, had "Shimmering strings and spectacular unique effects (that) conjure up sights and sounds that Spielberg himself could only dream of." I will have to take their word on that, for it may have been exciting and "unforgettable" if you were there, but watching it on DVD it is hard to imagine. ELO had a reputation for putting on quite spectacular shows to match the exciting sounds they created, but I don't think that is conveyed here. The performance is in aid of the Invalid Children's Aid Association (which is probably long defunct) and runs for a small under an hour. It features some fairly primitive laser effects (by today’s standards anyway), a fairly standard light show, and some truly hideous satin outfits and huge hair, complimented by horrific moustaches and beards. Maybe rock bands in the '70s travelled lighter than today's crop, or were more careful with money, ‘cause they certainly didn't waste it on such things as stylists or private assistants. Songs from the Out Of The Blue album feature prominently and generally are well played and faithful to the originals. The concert incorporates some poor video effects that create ABBA movie clips appear avant garde, and the photo itself is off-centre, most obvious when the footage is occasionally framed in a rectangular or oval 'window'. Discovery is one of ELO's more successful albums of the '70s and is presented here as a series of specially filmed video clips, one for each track. None are particularly ground breaking (even for the 1970s) and most are a combination of animation and 'live' performance - ie mimed. The running order is the same as the original album and if you switch off the TV, it's the same as hearing a CD copy of the album.
Do not mention Google Now to her. Do not mention Google Now, she will obtain defensive. Works well and has a amazing understanding of commands. A few features I [email protected]#$%! had are Google Now integration, the ability to strobe lights, and the ability to set a random color. The latest 2 should be beautiful simple to implement. There is a weird feature if you ask her to set the color to black, it sets the background of the application to black and dims the lights. Interesting. EDIT: There is a issue where if you tell her to stop listening, she turns off all lights.
Finally! Forever it seemed there was no proper melody visualizers available for the Android/LIFX combination. At latest Light DJ came to Android. I'd came upon Light DJ before and was blown away. At the time it was only available for Mac OS and iOS. Now the primary functionality has been brought to Android device and it is just what I'd been looking for. The four included effects and ten colour options let you to make a captivating light show. The visualizer engine is super intelligent. It adapts and looks amazing regardless of the number of lights you have. It's relatively responsive with under a second of delay when you clap your hands. Of course it synchronizes to the beat of the melody when melody is playing so the delay is eliminated. I have zero complaints and only help and suggestions. It'd be amazing to see a custom colour options, the ability to add more than three defined colours to the show, and a white light temperature option. I hope the iOS features create there method over as well.
Don't buy I used this application on Apple phone and it's hands down the globe best DJ application for lifx bulbs which I use but for android device platform it's a no go, I blindly trusted and payed without even trying a demo for this application and it turns out total disappointment.
Won't detect my bulbs The app won't detect my lifx bulbs. I've done the power resrt and even the hard restart but they will not present up in the application. Edit - thank you. I'll wait for the modernize edit 2. I received the update. Everything is working!! Amazing app!
Looses Lifx Bulbs Loses bulbs and the only method to obtain them back is to uninstall and reinstall application again. Getting a bit fed up with it. Don't understand why you can't just do a rescan without having to uninstall and reinstall every time.
