DISCLAIMER: You may notice there are a lot of over-used keywords or phrases as well as English that seems a little off. This is because these articles are used to feed our AI Robot (Ira) and she needs the data to be structured in a certain way.

REMINDER: This bulb should only be used indoors in a non-enclosed location.

This is the digital setup instructions for the Red Series RGBW A19 Smart Bulb on the Hubitat platform.

Navigating the Instructions

Please click on any of the sections in the Table of Contents to get started. We recommend working your way down as it follows an intentional flow that is user friendly and hub/gateway specific. As always, any questions, please see the Additional Resources links section or submit a ticket, we’re happy to help.

Quick Setup Instructions

Follow these if you have already installed the smart bulb before and are just looking for some quick pairing instructions. If this is your first time installing the smart bulb, please skip this section and work your way through the various sections below starting with the Prerequisites.

This section assumes the following:

  1. You’ve installed the Device Driver

Let’s begin:

  1. Make sure the bulb is turned off

  2. Open up your Hubitat Web App and click on the, “Devices” tab

  3. Click, “Add Device”

  4. Then under, "Add device manually:", click on, "Z-Wave"

  5. Click on, "Start Z-Wave Inclusion"

  6. Screw in the bulb (or turn the bulb on)

  7. The bulb should blink twice indicating it's in inclusion mode - it will blink once more to indicate it was included successfully

  8. Hubitat should then search for, find and let you know that a device was added

  9. Feel free to label the device and, if applicable, add it to a room

Video Demonstration

If you run into issues where your bulb is not including, you may have to try an exclusion process. To do this, start by turning your bulb off, putting your gateway in exclusion mode and then turning your bulb on. Then start the exclusion process on your hub and turn the bulb on. It should flash one to two times indicating it’s in exclusion mode. If successful, it will become dim and you can try inclusion again.

If your bulb is not blinking twice, then try performing a factory reset.


The only prerequisite to pairing this bulb is the following:

  • Installation of the Device Driver

While this bulb will also pair without it, for full functionality, you’ll want to install the Device Driver.

Device Driver Installation

To install the Device Driver, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Open up your Hubitat web app and click on, "Drivers Code" in the menu (you may have to click on, "Advanced" if you don't see this option)

  2. Click on, "+ New Driver"

  3. Click on, "Import" and a box should appear that says, "Import Code from Website" and it will ask you for a URL

  4. Paste the following URL ( into the section titled, "Insert URL to Import Text into Code Editor" and click, "Import" (followed by, "OK" when asked if you want to override the text in the editor)

  5. Click, "Save"

Now when you pair your bulb, it should automatically pick up the Device Driver. Feel free to move onto the next section of the Setup Instructions below.

Pairing Instructions

The below instructions assume you have installed the Device Driver prior to pairing.

Please follow the instructions below to include/pair your Red Series RGBW A19 Smart Bulb

  7. Hubitat will then continue to search for your Inovelli bulb and, if successful, will let you know that the device was found and ultimately added

  8. You can change the name of your bulb by clicking where it says, "Label this device" and then clicking, "Save"

Once your bulb is successfully paired, check to make sure you have basic functionality of it by turning it on/off and changing colors

Advanced Feature Setup

Below we will provide a link to all the parameters and show you how to change them from within Hubitat and then we'll go into some of the advanced features and explain how to set them up in Hubitat.

Parameter Explanations

You will need to install a Device Driver prior to accessing any of these features from within the app. Instructions can be found here: Device Driver Installation

A parameter is a setting within the bulb firmware that allows you to change how the bulb operates.

To find all the parameters, please follow these steps:

  1. Open your Hubitat Web App and go to the, "Devices" tab

  2. Find your Red Series RGBW A19 Smart Bulb and click on it

  3. Scroll down to where it says, "Preferences" - here is where all the parameters are listed out and can be changed via the drop-downs

Z-Wave Associations

Z-Wave Associations is when two or more Z-Wave products communicate directly with one another without the need to communicate with a hub. There are two main benefits of utilizing Z-Wave Associations: speed & local control.

From a speed standpoint, cutting out the middle-man (hub) can save precious milliseconds or even seconds depending on your cloud and/or processing power off your hub. Whereas from a local control standpoint, if your hub goes does down and cannot communicate, your products can still talk to each other.

To setup Z-Wave Associations with your Hubitat Hub, please see this article: Setting Up Z-Wave Associations • Hubitat
