    You can download the Wiser by SE App at any time, however, depending on the age and current firmware on your Bluetooth devices they may not be compatible with Wiser by SE until they have completed a firmware update within Wiser Room.

    Can I keep using the Wiser Room App?

    You are able to keep using the Wiser Room App, however you will not be able to access any new features, firmware updates or functions that are available in the Wiser by SE App.

    Do I have to re-program my devices settings when I upgrade from Wiser Room to the Wiser by SE App?

    No, all your device settings will remain in the device and be available when scanned by the Wiser by SE app.  If you are changing your device from BLE to Zigbee mode it is recommended to perform a factory reset on the device before changing. This can be found in the product installation instructions. Please note that the device settings will be erased when changing to Zigbee mode.

    Note:  The invitation code lasts for 3 days after which it will expire.

    Why is my Wiser device not turning ON/OFF at the prescribed time set in the schedule?

    Go to your Home Settings and ensure your Home Location is set correctly.
    If you have the schedule set for Sunrise and/or Sunset, the on and off times will vary throughout the year in line with the astronomical times.
    For BLE devices, you can go into your device Setting and Update time & date under Time Synchronization.
