Connecting Your WEC3 Controller to Your Home Wi-Fi

Setting up your Minleon Permanent Lighting System with multiple WEC3 controllers has never been easier. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of connecting your WEC3 controller to your home Wi-Fi network, ensuring a seamless and synchronized lighting experience.

Step 1: Ensure Wi-Fi Connection

Begin by going to the settings on your device and verifying that the Wi-Fi is connected to the network being output by the WEC3 controller. This is typically labeled as the “WEC3” network.

Step 2: Open the Pixel Dancer App

Next, open the Pixel Dancer app on your device. If the initial screen displays a prompt, simply press the “X” at the bottom of the screen to proceed.

Step 3: Access the Settings Menu

Locate the gear symbol in the upper right-hand corner of the app and press it to enter the settings menu.

Step 4: Configure Network Settings

In the settings menu, you’ll see three fields that need to be filled out:

  1. Wi-Fi Name: Enter the name of the Wi-Fi network you want to connect the controller to, such as your household Wi-Fi.
  2. Wi-Fi Password: Enter the password for the Wi-Fi network you selected.
  3. WEC3 Name: Choose a name for your WEC3 controller that you’ll remember, such as your company name. This will be used for local browsing.

Below these fields, you’ll see three options: Master, Client, and None. In this case, you’ll want to select “Master” as you are setting up a master controller.

Step 5: Reboot the WEC3 Controller

Once you’ve entered all the necessary information, click the “Reboot WEC3” button and wait for the controller to reset, which should take 15 to 30 seconds.

Connecting Additional WEC3 Controllers

Now that you’ve set up your master WEC3 controller, you can connect additional controllers to your home Wi-Fi network and synchronize their lighting displays. Here’s how:

Step 1: Repeat the Setup Process

For each additional WEC3 controller, repeat the steps outlined above to connect them to your home Wi-Fi network. Remember to use the same Wi-Fi name and password, but give each controller a unique “WEC3 Name” that you’ll remember.

Step 2: Designate Slave Controllers

When configuring the network settings for the additional controllers, select the “Client” option instead of “Master.” This will designate them as slave controllers, allowing them to synchronize with the master controller.

Step 3: Verify Connections

After rebooting the slave controllers, check your device’s Wi-Fi settings to ensure they have successfully connected to your home network. You can then reopen the Pixel Dancer app to confirm the controllers are now visible and ready for synchronized lighting control.Unlocking the Full Potential of Your Lighting System

By setting up multiple WEC3 controllers on your home Wi-Fi network, you can unleash the full potential of your Minleon Permanent Lighting System. With synchronized control and precision, you can create stunning holiday or event lighting displays that will captivate your guests and leave a lasting impression.
