Controlling the lights

The Govee Smart Lights makes it easy and allows you to control them through the App, a control unit, and a home assistant.

The App definitely falls on the pro list. It is quick and easy to set up and gives you plenty of controls to mess and play around with.

Brightness, color, and on/ off control can be found in the App, so can music mode, custom color, and scenes. 

Through the App, you can group and control multiple lights at the same time or separately.

I found the App easy to navigate and control any room with the click of a button. The reaction time with the App is immediate, and it has excellent features, especially for how inexpensive it is.

Control unit

The control unit is easy to place anywhere as it has a 3M backing and can stick to almost anything.

There are three buttons on the control unit, and it is the fastest way to control the lights.

The top button turns the Govee Smart Lights on and off. Followed by the button that changes the LED’s colors. 

Lastly, the bottom button controls both the brightness when you hold it down and turns the music feature on and off.

Home assistant

You can also control the Govee Smart Lights via Amazon Echo or Google Home. Using commands, you can turn the lights on and off as well as changing colors. 

But music mode and scenes cannot be activated by a home assistant.

Connection process

First, you will need to download the “Govee Home” App from your App store. 

Now you can make yourself an account if you are going to connect your lights with a home assistant, make sure to have your account set up.

Before starting the connection, make sure that your phone or device is connected to the correct WiFi you want to connect with your lights.

Once you reach the Home page, you should click on the plus (+) sign to move to the “Add the device” tab. You should now be in the “Smart Lighting” division.

To connect Govee Lights to your phone, you will need the model number of the lights. 

We purchased the “H6159” model, but you should choose the model number that corresponds to your lights.

You can locate the model number on the back of your Govee Lights box, making it easier to connect and identify the right type of LED lights you purchased. 

The App will then start looking for the device, and once it is found, you will be able to name it.
