Map your Lights

If you are installing a string of lights, this process allows the application to locate the LEDs in the room and map them. In 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 are 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 reindeer with snowman, wreath and garland.

 

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. Tap the “mapping” button and select the type of mapping you want to apply:

 

2D Mapping
This type of mapping is recommended for installations where the lights are predominantly on a single floor.
The algorithm will automatically identify the position of the LEDs located on the sides and back of the holder, estimating their position.

Start the mapping by clicking on “Mapping” and select “2D Mapping”: the LEDs will start flashing quickly and the magic begins!
The mapping will end when the LEDs stop on a fixed colour. It will be possible to save or repeat the operation.
In case of poor results, a pop up will indicate the “Poor results” condition and it will be possible to repeat the operation.

 

3D Mapping (front-back)
This type of 3D Mapping is recommended for those who install strings or groups of strings on a three-dimensional object such as a Christmas tree.

Just point the front of the decorated object. Start the mapping by clicking on “Mapping” and selecting “Mapping”: the LEDs will start to flash quickly. As soon as the LEDs stop on a fixed colour, the application will have mapped the position of the LEDs placed on the front of the decorated object. Point to the back of the decorated object, start the mapping again. When the LEDs stop on a fixed colour, the mapping will be completed.

The mapping will end when the LEDs stop on a fixed colour. It will be possible to save or repeat the operation. This type of mapping is not available for “Scene” type groups.

From this moment on, an accurate map of your Twinkly LEDs in the room appears reproduced in your Effects Gallery. The application recalculates the effects adapting them to the customized layout (Compilation).

 

Prelit Mapping
Pre lit trees have, as 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

If the camera doesn’t work, please verify that you gave the permission to the app to access your camera.
You can map an entire Join group.
If you want to map a scene, or a sync group we suggest to map each device individually, prior to You can map each device
