    Ok so after spending an hour on the ecosmartlive.com website I concede that I’m too stupid to get my light set up.

    Google confirms I'm not the only idiot. Surely there is easier way to get my light set?!!

    Help please!

    how many units do you have.

    If more than one. Set up only one first. Unplug the power to the others. Then after you eventually manage to get one programmed. Unplug your PC. Power up all the other units. Plug back into already programmed unit. And do the search thing to find the others. Then use the program all function for the others.

    PS. You are not an idiot. I struggled myself a whole day trying to do them all together.

    Feel your pain:thumbup: Had the same issues. Even have a few support cases at Ecotech logged. Just some side notes that worked for me......

    1) ADSL only - 3G was giving issues at the scheduling stage - losing connection! Funny thing is that my 3G is "open" - no restrictions, maximum signal strength. But still gave me issues. Eventually switched over to ADSL. Got everything setup in less than 3minutes.
    2) Use Google Chrome or Safari - other browsers gave me issues.

    I definitely would recommend calibrating the units once you get everyone setup.

    Mmm no ADSL at home, will have to bring them to work.

    Does my head in that it's so much admin to set these units up.

    Thanks

    FYI for the next guy that battles with this.

    Google Chrome and ADSL worked like a bomb. Took all of 5 minutes.

    For some reason 3G doesn't play well with the radions
