Full instructions below.
Some models of Android phone disable the automatic linking of your camera to the App. To enable the camera go to: Settings, select Apps, Select the Mercator Smart App, Select Permissions and enable the camera.
Add Device is only available to the system administrator. When logging in to the App select Existing User and use the user name admin with password admin. You will then be able to add devices to the system
Each product has a slightly different pairing time. Some products require four on/off cycles before they can “pair”, others require five on/off cycles. If your product does not pair initially, turn off the light, wait 10 seconds and then repeat the pairing process.
You can still operate your lights by using the wall switch. Once your phone/tablet battery is recharged or the Wi-Fi reconnects simply re-commence operating from your phone/tablet.
If you use the wall switch instead of your phone/tablet, or if you lose power to the Mercator Smart system, the Mercator Smart operating system will revert to the light’s last known setting. To change the last known setting simply operate via the app.
The Mercator Smart system uses mesh technology, meaning each device is connected and talks to each other.
Whilst it is important that the first connected light is approximately 5 metres from the Gateway, the location
of other connected lights does not affect the performance of the system. Slow response is more likely due to the performance/quality of your Wi-Fi router. For best performance Mercator Smart should be used with a Wi-Fi router.
Yes, other people in the house can download the app and operate smart products from their own phone/tablet.
No – as long as the gateway is powered up and your WiFi network is operating all timed scenes will operate automatically
Create a Rule to link the sensor to the devices (lights or switches) you want to control.
You will need to create a rule for what happens when the sensor detects movement (turn on lights) and another rule for what happens when there is no movement (turn off lights).
See the following – how to create a rule information for full details:
Up to 80 devices can be controlled from 1 gateway
No – all dimmers must be disconnected. Mercator Smart Lights have the dimming function built into them. Use of existing dimmers may damage your dimmers and affect the performance of your Smart lights.
Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz router/hub/modem can be used. The gateway uses your in-home WiFi to communicate with the smart devices.
