Luxor - iOS® and Android™ Control


Read Article

There are two ways to associate a Luxor Controller with a Wi-Fi network. Through a Networked Wi-Fi Router, or directly to a wireless iOS or Android device.

A Luxor system with a Wi-Fi Module installed can be operated manually and with the Themes mode utilizing an iOS or Android device. The FX Luminaire Luxor App can be downloaded from the following Application Stores:

  • Apple iTunes Store
  • Google Play Store

Note: The Luxor App will not function or initiate unless a Luxor with a Wi-Fi module is installed and associated with the same network as the iOS or Android device or it is in Direct Mode.
