Control xLight with the Remote Control

After being assembled and connected to a power supply, xLight executes the default program, you can see Default Program of xLight to understand the working modes, light effects, and light games.

The following describes how the remote control works:

You can press key A, B, C, or D to enter the working mode you want.


Switch between light effects and games or choose one

After entering a working mode, you can press key < or > to go to the previous or next light effect or game. Alternatively, you can press a number to choose the light effect or game numbered the same number. For the light effects, games, and their numbers, see Default Program of xLight.

Use the mood lighting mode as an example.
