Troubleshooting Tips

Lights Flickering

If your lights are flickering, ensure that you're using the included bulb adapter with medium base bulbs. If your fixture is an integrated LED, contact GE support for an alternative adapter.

Connection Issues

If the switch is having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, make sure you're using a 2.4 GHz network and that the signal strength is adequate. If you have a mesh network, try creating a dedicated 2.4 GHz SSID for the switch.

Device Not Responding

If the switch is not responding, try resetting the device by turning the power off at the circuit breaker, waiting a minute, and then turning it back on. If issues persist, reset the device through the Cync App and reconnect.

Can this switch automatically adjust for sunset and sunrise times?

What should I do if my lights are flashing?

If you're experiencing flashing lights, ensure that all bulbs are of the same type and brand. If using LED bulbs, make sure they are compatible with the switch and use the included bulb adapter if necessary.

How do I connect the switch to my smart home system?

After installing and setting up the switch with the Cync App, you can add the device to your smart home system via the respective app for Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Follow the app's instructions to link your Cync account and discover the switch.

What do I do if the switch disconnects from Wi-Fi?

First, check your Wi-Fi connection and ensure that your router is working correctly. If the switch frequently disconnects, consider moving your router closer to the switch or adding a Wi-Fi extender to improve signal strength. If the problem persists, reset the switch and reconnect it to the app.

Is there a minimum wattage requirement for the switch to function correctly?
