Here's how to use the FunHouse Lighting for LIFX controller.

Mount the FunHouse

Mount the FunHouse to your wall using the mounting plate, or rest it on a desk or other surface. Make sure the mini PIR sensor has a clear view of the area you want to motion detect for people entering the space.

Turn on the LIFX bulb switch.


The FunHouse will start up and turn on the LIFX bulb to the default color set in code.

Adjust Timer and Arm Sensor

You can use the top and middle buttons on the FunHouse to adjust the timer.

When ready to use the sensor, press the bottom button, which will change the display from paused to ..prepping.. and then to sensing...

It is now sensing for big IR sources, such as, well, you!

Motion Detected

When a person is detected the Dotstars will change to the tripped color and the command will be sent over WiFi to the LIFX bulb (via the Internet).

The tripped color will remain while the timer counts down.

No Motion Detected

Once the timer has run down and no motion is detected, the bulb will return to the default color.
