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.

setting (static colour or automatic colour-changing mode)
