In some cases, it can be helpful to get a push notification when a lamp is turned on, for example:

- Checking that the outside lights have turned on
- When the in the nursery the lamp turns on
- Seeing in your absence that the lamps are switched on
- Getting a notification when after a power outage the lights are turned on again*


If you link this notification to a scene in which you choose one lamp that sends a notification to your phone after turning on, you are always informed when this lamp is turned on. To set this up, proceed as follows:

  • Open the Calex App
  • Go to the 'Smart' tab
  • Tap the '+' symbol at the top right to create a new scene
  • Tap 'When device status changes'
  • Choose the lamp you want to associate the notification with
  • Tap 'Switch'
  • Select 'On'

You are now done with the IF condition, now proceed to fill in the Then condition:

  • Tap the '+' sign in the box Then
  • Select 'Send notification'
  • Select 'Messages'
  • Tap 'Next' in the upper right corner
  • Tap 'Confirm' at the bottom
  • Give the scene a name, e.g. Lamp ON Notification
  • Tap 'Yes' to start using the scene (you can easily turn it off later)
  • The scene is now ready to use.


However, to receive messages from the Calex App, this option must be activated in the Calex App. To check or set this, follow these steps:

  • Go to the 'Account' tab
  • Tap the 'Nut' symbol in the upper right corner
  • Tap on 'Push notification
  • Tap on 'System Notification'.
  • Set the switch at 'Enable System Notification' to ON
  • Tap the arrow (<) in the upper left corner 3 times to return to the 'Account' tab

To test the scene, go to the 'Home' tab and tap the lamp to which the scene is linked. You should now get a notification on your phone screen that the lamp is switched on. This notification can also be found under messages on the Account tab.

* However, it is still important that after a power outage, the Wi-Fi router is automatically started up in order to send the notification to your account in the cloud.
