I don’t have a smart phone and want to purchase the Fresco Aurora, can I buy an additional/optional remote?
Yes, however if you have wi-fi and a router at your house we strongly recommend to pair the Fresco Aurora to your wi-fi router. After this you can continue to use the optional remote as desired. If you do not pair the Fresco Aurora to your wi-fi, you will continually need to turn off a green coloured light that may be activated if your wi-fi signals drops, or resets or the unit is picking up your neighbours wi-fi. Note: the remote does not have timer or changing “Moods” colours. You can only select one colour.
I want the Fresco Aurora model for the coloured mood lights but don’t want to use my home wi-fi. Can I just buy the remote and use it that way?
Yes, however, if you have wi-fi and a router at your house we strongly recommend to pair the Fresco Aurora to your wi-fi router. After this you can continue to use the optional remote as desired. If you do not pair the Fresco Aurora to your wi-fi, you will continually need to turn off a green coloured light that may be activated if your wi-fi signals drops, or resets or the unit is picking up your neighbours wi-fi.
What is the range of the Fresco in built Wi-Fi module?
20m in ideal conditions
What should I do if I have a limited range of Wi-Fi in my house?
The Fresco Aurora is designed to work with commercially available wifi range extenders to overcome such issues.
What happens if I turn off the Wi-Fi signal in my home?
The Fresco Aurora will experience loss of connection and the unit will need to be reset and setup as instructed in the setup guide. It is suggested to keep the WiFi router on to avoid setting up the unit multiple times.
I cannot find my wifi network on the list of available networks during setup.
Please consider closing and reopening the app as sometimes it may take a little longer for fresco to find the network.
How many smart devices can be connected to the Fresco Aurora at one time/operate the Fresco Aurora at one given time?
Multiple devices can be connected to the Fresco Aurora at the same time, however we suggest using a single phone to control a single unit, as signal from multiple sources can cause the unit to not function as desired.
How many Fresco Aurora units can be controlled by one device?
A multitude of units can be controlled by one single smart device, however kindly note that if all units are operated via one smart device they will all operate interdependently. You will not be able to operate each unit independently of each other.
