One of my DARA devices is not responding. What do I do?
  • If a DARA device is shown with one bar on the connection meter (in the mobile app, Settings->Devices), then the DARA device is out of range, offline or not responding. Move closer to the respective DARA device, check its power status, restart it and then check again the list of Devices in the mobile app. Now the DARA device should appear online. If the issue is still not solved, then please contact our support team.
Some lamps are not responding to dimming commands.

Go to manual control screen (main screen) of DARA Lighting mobile app. Select group All and send a dim command to all lamps. If some lamps fail to respond, then check if the lamps are properly connected to the power and DALI lines.

Some lamps respond to dim commands in group All but cannot be added to groups or other settings. What do I do?

If the lamps are not available in the Settings ->Groups & Lamps menu, then a device recommission is recommended. If this does not solve the issue, please contact our support team.
