Instruction for Use
Thank you for buying Philips LivingColors!
LivingColors has been especially designed to create your own ambiance
at home, through colour and light.

1. Open the battery compartment of the remote control by sliding
the button at the back. Insert 3 AAA batteries (+ and – as
indicated) (drawing a).
2. Place LivingColors at a selected location on a flat and stable surface.
Direct LivingColors towards the wall (the optimal distance is
50 cm), insert the connection plug into the lamp (drawing b), and
then plug it into the wall socket. LivingColors will show a short
introduction to the colour possibilities.
3. Switch on LivingColors by briefly pressing the "I" (on) on the on/off
button placed on the remote control (drawing c).
4. Create your own ambiance by:
-Touching the desired colour on the colour wheel. You can move

colour wheel again, then press "0". Alternatively, you can switch
LivingColors off "0" and on "I" again. (drawing c)
2.Linking LivingColors lamps
1. You can operate multiple LivingColors with one remote control.
The LivingColors lamps will then project the same colour (or
will change colours simultaneously). In order to link several
LivingColors to one remote control, bring the remote close to
the Philips logo on the top of the lamp and press on "I" ("On").
LivingColors will flash 3 times, and then quickly flash green. You can
release the button now. The linked lamps will turn to the last setting
of the remote control.
- Repeat this operation for each LivingColors lamp that you want to
link with the others.
- To use the LivingColors separately again, link it to another remote
control in the same way as described above.
2. It is also possible to control one LivingColors lamp with several
remote controls. In order to do so, first reset one of the remotes
by pressing and holding the "0" and the ( ) buttons simultaneously
for 5 seconds. Then hold two remote controls close to each other
and press the "I" button on both for 7 seconds. You can now link
the new remote control to the LivingColors in the same way as
- LivingColors that are linked to two (or more) remote controls can
be controlled by either remote control.
- To unlink a remote control from a LivingColors, hold the remote
control close to the LivingColors and press "0" for three seconds.
The LivingColors will flash 3 times. Hold the "0" button a little
longer and it will slowly fade to off. The remote control and the
LivingColors are now unlinked.
3.Compatibility with timers
You can use LivingColors with a timer (not included). When
switched on with a timer, the LivingColors will show your last
setting (static colour or automatic colour-changing mode)
