To control luminaires also with other devices the sharing settings need to be changed. To be able to share a network the mobile device must have a good Bluetooth connection to the network and also a reliable Internet connection.


To share a network, tap on Sharing settings and then Sharing. There are four different options available:


Not shared Access to the network is only possible using the device with which it was originally created and not uploaded to cloud service.


Administrator only The network is not automatically discoverable to any devices, but it is possible to log in from the networks screen if you know the admin email and password. Anyone who logs in with the admin email and password is also able to modify the network programming. The Networks screen can be accessed from More > Change network or from the app’s start page by selecting My Networks.


Password protected The network is discoverable by other devices but users (visitors) need to know and enter a password to access and control luminaires. They cannot make network programming changes. If network programming modification is needed (e.g. to add more luminaires, or create scenes), then the network needs to be logged in to using the admin email and password. This network type therefore has two access levels: visitor and administrator.


Open The network is discoverable by other devices and there is no password required for visitor access. Anyone with the Casambi app can access this type of network and control the lights. They cannot make any programming changes. If network programming modification is needed (e.g. to add more luminaires, or create scenes), then the network needs to be logged in to using the admin email and password. This network type therefore has two access levels: visitor and administrator.



Note: In order to be able to recover lost passwords, a valid administrator email address must always be used.



After changing the network sharing mode, the administrator email and password need to be set for the network. A visitor password is needed for a password protected network so that other devices can access the network.

 

Evolution networks offer the additional security possibility to define three levels of access for each sharing setting type: User, Manager and admin (Administrator).

 

Admin Has full control of all network aspects.

 

Manager Can configure the network (i.e. change programming), but not create new user accounts.

 

User Can only use the network but cannot make any programming changes.

 

To save the new settings select Done. If the sharing setting is something other than Not Shared all the changes are uploaded to Casambi cloud service and the network can be accessed from other devices.
