Lighting

I'm unable to control my lights using the Zuma app

Here are some troubleshooting steps to help:

1) Check to see if your phone is connected to the same network. It could be that you are currently connecting to the internet via LTE 4G/5G or possibly another network?

2) Are there any LED indication lights on any of Zuma products? If so, look at the Zuma LED Status for advice.

3) Quit and relaunch the Zuma app to establish a fresh connection to your area. Alternatively, check to see if another device with the Zuma app can connect.

4) Check your network connection, if there are problems, unplug your router, wait for 15 seconds and once your network is up you should be able to control your lights again.

1) Open your Zuma app and select the area that presents this problem.

2) Click on the ”Light” tab and check to see if the light bulb icon is yellow (muted). If so, tap on it to un-mute and they should light up at the level indicated on the Brightness slider below.

One of my Zumas has a different brightness to others

Here are some troubleshooting steps to help:

1) Open your Zuma app and select the area that presents this problem.

2) Click on the Settings icon in the top right-hand corner of the window.

3) Locate the Zuma that’s misbehaving and click on the restart button.

What are the LED lighting specifications?

The Lumisonic LED features are:

  • Tuneable lighting with 1000 shades.
  • Colour with a range of 3,000k – 5,000k colour temperature.
  • Lumen of 530lm.
  • Efficacy of 89/W.

My lights were off and have randomly turned on

A most common reason for smart lighting systems to seemingly randomly turn on is when there has been a temporary loss of power or a power cut and power has now been resumed.

In a scenario like this, your Zuma or smart lighting device will automatically turn on once power has been resumed, it’s kind of a safety feature. We have pre-set the value to brightness at 50%.

Circadian lighting seems to be out of sync with my location lighting settings?

The Circadian feature is currently set for customers based in the UK.

If you are based in the UK and still experiencing a problem, please contact us using the options below and we can help investigate this for you.

Audio

Music is playing but I have no sound from my Zuma speakers

Here are some troubleshooting steps to help:

1) Check to see if your phone is connected to the same network. It could be that you are currently connecting to the internet via LTE 4G/5G or possibly another network.

2) Open the Zuma app and select your room.

3) Check to see if the audio speaker icon has a line through it (muted). If so, click to un-mute to resume audio.

Check if the volume slider is set to the desired level.

Check the audio source application (Spotify, Airplay2, Amazon Music, Tidal) for volume control.

Also note, some applications use their own volume.

Audio playback is cutting out/stuttering

Although it’s your audio quality that’s affected, it could be related to something else such as the audio streaming service you are using, or your network performance at this time.

Here are some troubleshooting steps to help:

1) Check to see if the issue happens with another audio source. For example – if you were playing audio via Airplay, try playing the same track through Spotify, Apple Music, or Amazon Music.

2) Check to see if the issue happens with another audio device. Try and play the same music directly on your phone or another speaker-enabled device if you have one.

3) If the issues persist, try power cycling your main router. After performing a power cycle your network connection should be refreshed.

Should you still be experiencing a problem please contact us and we will help investigate your problem with you.

Networking

Networking requirements

The Zuma Lumisonic supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac/2.4Ghz/5Ghz network standards.

Other tips:

1) If you can stream music or media content to your iPhone then the performance should be the same for your Zumas.

2) As for network speed requirements we would recommend a minimum of 5MB download to ensure you have a good level of audio streaming play though.

If you are looking to test your network, we recommend trying a speed test service such as SPEEDTEST.COM or FAST.COM

My Zumas keep dropping off the network

Our advice is to check the distance from either Zuma or each of your Zuma areas and your network router.

You can check the quality of the network of each Zuma from within the Zuma app settings area and look at the Link Quality value.

Give us a call and we can help look at your setup and help ensure you have an optimal setup.

Working with different network types

In our modern world, home networks can be a complex thing.

As part of our quality assurance, and to gain certification to work with the various application services, we have also tested various WiFi configurations such as:

  • Home Broadband (Popular supplied routers and 3rd party Routers).
  • Mobile Home Broadband (4G/5G MiFi hardware).
  • Satellite Internet (Yep, we’ve been lucky enough to try it out on a Starlink and Zumas work fine from a space-based connection!).

Our summary would be, if you can surf the internet and stream from popular music and video services then your Zuma should work fine.

Working with Wi-Fi repeaters and extenders

Zuma products work across a large variety of network hardware and setups; however, you might experience problems if you are using multiple Wi-Fi range extenders with the same network name (SSID) or EoP (Ethernet over Power) adapters.

In most cases, a simple reboot of your wireless extender will bring your areas back online.

But if you experience problems, contact us and we’ll help on a best effort basis.
