Adding Devices


What used to be called the app dashboard, has been redesigned and renamed the “Devices” screen. The functionality of the “Devices” menu is very similar to the dashboard. This menu is where you can add, control and edit your devices.


Let’s get started!

To add an Avi-on device, you first need an Avi-on Account.

Connect your Avi-on compatible device to a power source and stand nearby. The app works only when your Avi-on compatible device is powered and within about 100 feet of your phone or tablet. 

The device is powered and ready to be added if the blue LED light is double flashing.

Note:  The GE Outdoor Switch does not have an LED indicator.

If the blue LED is either a solid color or turned off, then the Avi-on device has already been registered to another account, and will need to be hard reset, or removed prior to adding.


What's Next?

Next, you will register an available Avi-on device and add the device to your account by pressing the "Add Device" or "+" button on the Avi-on App.  If additional devices are in range, you will be able to add them to your account one at a time.

After logging in to your Avi-on Account and completing the tour, navigate to the Devices screen. You can easily navigate to the Devices menu through the app drawer. To access the app drawer, press the “three horizontal lines” in the upper left hand corner of the app screen. Note that these three lines are in the same location on many other screens within the app as well, so you can always press them to return to the drawer.

Once in the app drawer, you will see the “Devices” tab along with other new features covered in separate FAQs. Click on Devices.

Once in the Devices menu, tap the "+" button in the center or upper right hand corner to search for available devices.

Available devices in range of the smartphone or tablet you are connecting with will be shown. Select the devices you wish to add by tapping them. Then tap "Done" in the upper right hand corner.

After adding a device, you will be returned to the “Devices” menu where you can see a list of all Avi-on devices that have been added to your account. Although Avi-on controllers can be added from the Devices screen, they will not appear in the list of devices. Both Groups and Controllers will be shown in their own respective menus that can be accessed through the app drawer.
