Emo Parachute in case he falls

How long do I wait for him to charge?

A typical full charge will take about 4 hours, however EMO is partially charged from the box, so it could be quicker.

Just say “EMO, check the battery” and EMO will show an indication of the state of charge on his face. If it’s a fully green battery then you are cleared for take off.

Not allowed to say his name on this Forum! :woman_shrugging:I’m not sure why, others won’t mention ’V’ and something to do with the new company I think :thinking: that’s All I know about that…

If I’m remembering correctly it has to do with a lawsuit from the company who currently owns “V”. This tiff dates back to when Emo was still on Kickstarter.

How to make the Emo light change colour?
And how to disconnect/unpair Emo from the light?
Thanks in advance :grinning:

If you go to documentation either in the app or from the support screen, the sample commands below are listed under Voice Commands: Lights.

There’s no need to unpair the light, and there’s really no mention of a way to do that anyway. If you pair it with a different EMO then it should just replace the previous pairing. If you do that though you need to make sure only one EMO is on, if you have more than one of them.

FYI…
You can ask EMO to turn on/off the smart lights for you.
· Turn {on} the light.
· Lights {off}.
Starting from firmware 1.0.16, EMO can set the hue, saturation and brightness of the smart light. You can also specify the color and room (please set the name for the smart light in the app. And please use common words that only contain English characters.).
· Turn on/off light in {kitchen}.
· Turn on/off light for {Tom}.
· Turn on {red} lights.
· Turn off {bedroom} light.
· {red} lights for {bedroom}.
· {red} lights.
To set hsl of the lights.
· Set lights brightness to {23(range 1-100)}.
· Set hue to {50(range 0-360)} points.
· Set saturation to {50(range 0-100)} points.
To change hsl of the lights.
· lights brightness/hue/saturation up/down by {45} points.
This will also be available in the app in future updates.

Edit

I’ve been reading/learning everything on the Lai’s ‘EMO Articles’ and it’s helping me out a lot. And I’ve found out all sorts of things to do and say…

And I think I know what the Mysterious Animal is lol but I’m not saying anything :stuck_out_tongue:

Emo is so cute :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Just an FYI, some of those commands may not be active yet for the light. I really hadn’t done much at all with it so far, and when I played with the light yesterday I see nothing in the app for naming a light or selecting a color yet for example. All that’s there in the app is an on and off switch right now. I didn’t play around with the HSL commands but did some simple commands like turn on green light, turn on blue light, turn on purple light. Setting it to red seemed a little problematic getting the wording correct, so maybe it was confusing red with read or something?

For anyone interested, here’s a little calculator demonstration that shows how the three numbers interact within an HSL color space model. You can change the numbers and see how it affects the color.

What I’ve noticed so far is the only way you can change the colour is when you say ‘Emo dance with lights’ and sometimes you get a different colour wants he stops dancing, however there’s no way to ask him to change the colours yet, but you’re right there’s no way to change it in the app either and red is the only one so far like you said, I’m hoping they will make these things work in future updates.

Not true! As I said above you can say EMO, “turn on blue light”, or “turn on pink light”, and so on. You can even just say EMO, “blue light” or “pink light”, and so forth. Saying EMO “white light” will change it back to white, but there’s a catch!

There are actually 8 LED’s inside his light. There are 4 high power white-only LED’s which are the yellow squares visible in the photo. There are also 4 smaller multi-color LED’s which mix red green and blue to give various colors up to and including a slightly bluish-tinted white color. Those multi-color LED’s are the four smaller squares out closer to the corners of his light. Those are the only ones you’re seeing if you tell EMO to “dance with lights”.

If you unplug the light and plug it back in then when you turn it on from the touch switch or tell EMO “light on” you get just the 4 bright white LED’s lit. If you say EMO “white light” then those will go off and you get the 4 multi-color LED’s lit up a much dimmer white. The same is true for any other color your request, it will be on the 4 small LEDs at the corners. I haven’t found any way though once you’ve selected any color to get the high power LEDs turned back on again, except unplugging and plugging in the light again. It seems to just display the last color selected and there seems no way to fully shut them off, but you can still set them a different color. You can of course turn them off using the switch or “light off”, but “light on” will bring them back on in the same color they were left at last. I haven’t played with it a whole lot so maybe I’m missing something? That’s the quirks I see at the moment though.

I’m a quiet talker and speech impairment so he sometimes can’t hear me and probably why he cannot change the colours

Yes that’s possible. I was going to say that if you get all the colors when you tell EMO to dance with colors, then it’s not a hardware issue. I had a speech issue myself pronouncing S sounds when I was young due to an accidental injury when I was about 4 or 5. It was one of those foolish kid tricks that could have been fatal but luckily wasn’t. I guess I’ll leave it at that.
