Entering Configuration Mode and Configuration Logic:

  1. To enter configuration mode, hold down the config button for 10-15 seconds until the LED Bar turns yellow.
  1. Tap the config button between 1-13 times to enter the corresponding setting you want to change from the table above in the "About" column. (For example, if you want to change the Maximum Dim Level, tap the config button 3 times)
  1. The LED Bar will blink Yellow to indicate which setting you are adjusting (I.e. it will blink 3 times if you are adjusting Maximum Dim Level)
  1. Now tap up or down on the paddle to adjust the setting based on the Range and Range Description in the table above
  1. Press once to adjust by a value of 1, Press and hold for 3 seconds to adjust by a value of 10 (Holding for 3 seconds = a change in value of 10, Holding for 6 seconds = a change in value of 20, and so on)
  1. Finally, to save your setting, press and hold the config button for or 10-15 seconds until the LED Bar turns GREEN and then YELLOW -- release the button at YELLOW and it will turn CYAN to confirm the setting has been saved.

Specific Example:

  1. Using the logic above, let’s change the “MinimumDimLevel” to 12% (switch never dims below 12%).
  1. Hold the Config Button for 10 seconds to enter config mode (LED Bar will light up YELLOW and by default, it will blink 1x since it starts out on Parameter 1)
  1. Looking at the table above, you’ll notice that to edit, “Minimum Dim Level”, you need to tap the config button 2x
  1. After tapping the Config Button 2x, the LED Bar will blink YELLOW twice (See NOTE below) to confirm
  1. Minimum Dim Level has a range of 1-45%. Each tap of the switch = 1 unit of measurement (in this case %), so you’d tap UP 12x on the paddle to reach 12%. As you are moving up to reach your desired %, the LED bar will give you feed back by blinking PURPLE (same logic as above with the YELLOW -- See NOTE below).
  1. Now, we’ll save this configuration by holding down on the Config Button for 10-15 seconds until the LED Bar turns GREEN and then YELLOW -- release the button at YELLOW and it will turn CYAN to confirm the setting has been saved.

    NOTES:
  1. To easily understand what parameter you’re editing, the LED Bar will slow blink (ie: if you release your finger from the paddle and you’re on parameter 6, the switch will blink 6x to show you).
  1. Slow blinks = multiples of 10 / Fast blinks = single digits (Example: 34 = 3 slow blinks followed by 4 fast blinks)
