Once you have confirmed its compatibility, you can go ahead and set it up.
1. Install the smart bulb in a socket or lamp and turn it on
2. Open the Home app on your iOS device to add smart bulb
3. Scan the Homekit Setup Code provided in the manual, packaging, or on the smart bulb itself
Your iOS device will automatically connect to it.
If more than one smart device is nearby and detected, tap to select the one you are adding
The smart bulb will then connect to your iOS device automatically and be added to the Home app.
4. Once the smart bulb has been added, you’re all set!
Upon returning to the My Home page, you should see the shortcut for the smart bulb you had just added.
