Pro Mapping Tips
- For incomplete mapping (missing lights), verify all capsules are visible to the mapping device.
- Dim light (overcast, dawn, or dusk) is best suited for mapping. Bright daylight and night conditions may produce undesired results.
- Ensure that there are no reflective/mirror type surfaces around the display. Light reflected by surfaces can create improper mapping results.
- Ensure proper grouping before attempting the “Join” mapping option. To begin grouping, click the chain icon on the top right corner of the app. Controllers may be individually mapped for “Sync” or “Area” options.
