LR1 Quick Start Guide

Download the WLED app from the app store.
Apple App Store / Android App Store

Plug light into supplied 5V power supply
(only use 5V power supply or you risk permanently damaging the light)

With the LR1 powered on, we can connect to the default Access Point

View nearby WiFi networks on your phone. You should see an SSID with the name WLED-AP.
Connect to the WLED-AP network using the password wled1234 and you should be greeted with a captive portal.

Once connected, you have the option to configure the WLED to connect to your local WiFi or you can just start controlling the LEDs.

WLED wifi access point SSID

I suggest connecting the controller to your WiFi network. This will prevent you from needing to connect to a new access point anytime you want to make a change to your LEDs.


Enter your SSID (network name) & Password and then press Save & Reboot. Ignore the static IP unless you are familiar with these settings.

Are the lights waterproof? – No, although they will probably be ok if splashed with water. Never submerge or allow the light to get wet. It will permanently damage it.

Can I toss the light around? – No, consider the light to be fragile.

My light isn’t turning on. – Check to make sure the power supply is plugged in and receiving power.

I can’t connect to my light – Make sure your phone is connected to wifi and that the wifi network is the same as the light.
