Results can have their colors and transition speeds edited, earlier than they’re utilized and saved to the controller.
You probably have a number of Curtain lights (or Twinkly lights of an analogous kind), you’ll be able to hyperlink them within the app to create a gaggle. Teams can then be managed as one.
In addition to app management, the lights work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Voice management let me flip the lights on and off, set the brightness and decide a stable color, however I couldn’t choose a scene this fashion.
HomeKit help is offered, too, with the lights showing within the Apple House app. There’s primary management over the Twinkly Curtain: I might choose a color and brightness, in addition to toggling energy. I did discover HomeKit help helpful for linking my lights as much as my Philips Hue system.
I’ve bought a number of Hue Outside lights, managed by means of a Hue Sensible Button. I set HomeKit to be careful for a button press, turning on the Twinkly Curtain lights. I then set an Automation to show off the Twinkly Curtain lights when a selected Hue mild turned off. Voila, my Twinkly lights now activate and off with my Hue lights, though they don’t match the identical scene or sample.
