AmbiScreen Eye Tips

If you have wifi connection issues check that your wifi network is 2.4GHz only, it has short alphanumeric wifi network name without special characters (like e.g.apostrophes).

Is your device loosing wifi connection? Try to place your Eye device closer to your router.

Colors are different? Eye contains LiveView page (accessible via web app on Eye). If color of your liveview leds is not correct, try to check what Eye sees. Everytime you navigate or refresh LiveView page, new image is grabbed. You can access this image at liveview page or directly via http://IP_of_eye/app/diagnose/liveview.jpg (replace IP_of_eye with current IP address of Eye device).
You can also go to Settings-LEDs of Eye and turn off color boosting with placing value 1.0. Or you can use other settings such as R,G,B values to adjust colors directly. Via webapp at Transform tab you can see these changes live (and later you can put these values in Settings-LEDs and save them to store it as default values).

AmbiScreen Eye can be placed everywhere in the room. However, the best viewing experience is possible when Eye is placed in the right direction with screen. The best performance is in the dark room without light reflections.

Reflections from your screen can affect generated colors. It is standard physical behavior and not fault of Eye.

When Eye is used for controlling AmbiScreen WiFiLED, then WiFiLED’s web app is not available (real-time mode is activated). If you want to control WiFiLED with its own web app, simply turn of AmbiScreen Eye or set another IP of WiFiLED in Eye’s settings.

Many values of AmbiScreen Eye can be set. You can experiment with color values, speed values, frequency (update frequency and time will slow or speed up generated colors), etc. When e.g. Frequency is set too high, it can make your network inaccessible. In this case you can reset factory defaults of your device.

Ambient daylight in the room can have an impact on live camera mode colors. This is standard physical behavior and not the reason for claim or returning the product. To minimize daylight you can boost color power with higher HSV color gain setting.

Many color settings can be adjusted via web app live, or saved to standard settings. You can adjust colors on Transform tab and save it in Settings->LEDs.

By default, color boosting is activated with value 2.0. You can deactivate it or adjust it at LEDs setting page („HSV Color Value gain“ to 1.0 deactivates it). Color boosting is advantage during daylight. No boosting can be achieved with value 1.0. Color boosting means that colors will be boosted to show greater effect (it can boost specific colors too much, e.g. white to blueish, and similar).

AmbiScreen Eye contains also Lite web app. This is good for tweaking or when your Eye device is not accessible via standard web app (e.g. when some setting was corrupted). Lite web app is available by accessing IP of Eye directly via web browser.

When in web app connection with your Eye is lost (red information message), click on Color tab or Device tab and device and connection should be initiated again.

AmbiScreen Eye and WiFiLED can work standalone with internal web apps in both devices.

In package you can find small rubber cylinder. It can be used to adjust position of your AmbiScreen Eye device (you can replace standard legs with it to adjust the best position of Eye. Please use scissors to adjust leg length.).

If you want to have static IP addresses for your devices, set it in your router DHCP table.

When electricity is lost in your home, manual uplug of AmbiScreen Eye and WiFiLED is recommended. Eye and WiFiLED can automatically reboot when used for longer time. This feature is fully automatical for perfomring maintenance.

On longer LED strips (longer than 2.5m) voltage drop may occur and it is normal.
