How To Reset Smart Bulb With These Easy Steps?

One of the best ways to smarten up your home is to swap your regular lights with smart LEDs. Setting up your smart lights is a quick operation. However, errors do occur from time to time, so you’ll need to return to the app for troubleshooting. If you have to reset your lights then, these simple steps will help you get started.

First you’ll need to ungrroup your Wemo bulbs so you can reset them sucessfully.
