CTA LED Downlights
- User Control Manual
Note: This operating manual refers to buttons on the “remote control” for
operating the lights. If using a Smart Phone (Wi-Fi) to operate the lights, the
Mi-Light Smart Phone App has the same control buttons so you must read
this “User Control Manual” to learn how to operate the lights.
To use your Smart Phone (Wi-Fi), a Wi-Fi Controller is required (sold
separately). You will also need to read the “WiFi Controller Setup Manual”.

1. Product Instruction
This remote control is used to control either individual or Channel of CTA (Colour Temperature
Adjustable) LED Downlights.
The remote control can be used to adjust brightness (dimming) or adjust colour
temperature (warm white - cool white - day light).
The remote works on 2.4GHz frequency with a range of up to 10 metres.
Please carefully read these instructions before use and operate the LED Downlights
according to these instructions.

2. INITIAL SETUP
Please follow the below steps to ensure correct setup.
2.1 Battery Installation
Remove the battery housing cover.
Install two AAA batteries (see Figure 1). Ensure the
batteries are orientated according to the makings
inside the housing
2.2 LED Lamp Installation:
Note: Installation should be carried out by a registered electrician according to local
Carefully remove the CTA LED Downlight(s) from the packaging.
mains power supply before installation.
Install the CTA LED downlight(s) as per the accompanying installation instruction sheet.
Switch the mains power on.
Switch the CTA LED downlight(s) on.
2.3 CTA LED Downlight Remote Programming
- Code matching & Code Clearing
- Grouping and Control
The remote control must be code matched to the CTA LED Downlight(s) before operation.
The remote can control up to 4 Channels of CTA LED Downlights. Recommended maximum of
10 lights per Channel. Therefore one remote can control 40 lights in total.
If the light has been previously code matched, it will need to
have the code cleared as per instructions in 2.3.4.
2.3.1 Code Matching:
Decide which downlights you want on each Channel (CH1-4).
Switch off the power to all downlights you want coded to
Channel 1 for 10 seconds.
Switch the power back on. Within 3 seconds turn on Channel 1 (Figure 2).
The lights you have selected for CH1 will flash three times to confirm they are code
Repeat the above steps for each channel until all lights are coded.
2.3.2 Group Control:
After grouping into channels and Code Matching is complete, the following wireless control
options can be performed (with the mains power switched on to the CTA LED Downlights):
Press the main ON button
at the top of the remote. All lights should now
Use the central circular keypad
to control the brightness [dimming]
(up/down buttons) and to control the colour temperature from 3000K Warm White through
to 6000K Daylight (left/right buttons).
At any time you can hold down the main ON button
and all lights will
return to full brightness.
Pressing the main OFF button
at the top will turn all lights off at the same
Pressing any of the Channel ON buttons
will select that channel only for
independent control using the central circular keypad
You can hold down any of the Channel ON buttons
and all lights in that
channel will return to full brightness.
Pressing any of the Channel OFF buttons
will turn all lights in that
If you need to control 2 or 3 channels at the same time, press the main ON button
first to turn all lights on, then turn off the channel(s) you do not wish to change.
Then operate accordingly using the buttons on the central circular keypad.
When the main power switch to the CTA LED downlights is on and the lights are turned off
by the remote control, the lights are in a standby state which uses 0.3W power per light.
Note – Power Cut:
If there is a Power Cut or the wall switch is turned off, after 20 seconds you
can restore the power and the CTA LED downlights will return to the last brightness/colour
temperature setting. If the lights are in Night Light mode (see below) when the power is cut, the
lights will restore to full brightness and 4000K colour temperature when power is restored and the
lights are turned back on by remote.
2.3.3 Night Light mode:
CTA LED Downlights can be set to Night Light mode, which gives a very dim light level-
excellent for mood lighting, aisle/hallway lighting, children’s rooms, or security lighting.
You can hold down the main OFF button
and all lights will switch to Night
Alternatively, you can hold down any of the Channel OFF buttons
only the lights in that channel will switch to Night Light mode.
To exit Night Light mode turn the lights off and on with the remote and they will return to
the previous brightness / colour temperature setting.
In Night Light mode each light will consume 0.4W power.
2.3.4 Code clearing and Regrouping of Downlights:
You can change the grouping of downlights into different channels. First the existing coding to
the remote needs to be cleared.
Decide which lights you want to regroup.
Switch off the power to all downlights you want to regroup.
Switch the power back on. Within 3 seconds press and hold the original Channel ON button
the downlights flash 6 times indicating coding is cleared.
To regroup follow the steps above in 2.3.
2.3.5 Lost remote function
If you lose the remote, (while you are waiting for a replacement remote) you can fast switch
the wall switch off and on and the lights will reset to full brightness and 3000K Warm White
colour temperature. Then if you fast switch off and on the lights will cycle between: 3000K
Warm White / 6000K Cool White / 4000K Natural White / 3000K Night Light mode.
3. REPLACEMENT OR ADDITION OF LIGHTS
3.1 Remote battery replacement
Replacing the batteries in the remote does not affect memory of previous settings.
3.2 Replacement or addition of CTA LED Downlights
When adding or replacing CTA LED Downlights, please follow steps 2.2 – 2.3.
3.3 Replace or Add Remote Controller
Put the batteries in the new remote control and operate according to above steps 2.3 to
code match and group into channels as required.
Tips: Each CTA LED downlight can be controlled by a maximum of four remote controls at the
same time. If a fifth remote control is coded, the first remote coding will be deleted.
Do the lights use power when they are off?
If the lights have been turned off by the remote control, the lights will consume 0.3W per
If the lights have been turned off by a wall switch, the lights will not consume any power.
How many lights can be controlled by one remote control?
Each group (channel) on the remote control can store 10 lights. There are 4 channels per
remote, so 4 x 10 = 40 lights per remote.
Can I have multiple remotes to control my lights?
You can code up to four remotes your light(s).
What is the range (distance) for the remote control?
The remote control operates on 2.4GHz frequency and is designed to IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
The maximum distance is approximately 10-15m.
Does the remote need to be in line of sight and pointed at the lights?
No. The remote works on wireless radio frequency (RF). Physical objects do not block the
transmission as long as the remote is with 10-15m of the downlights.
5. Trouble shooting
The CTA LED Downlights do not respond to the remote control.
Check the mains (wall) power supply to the downlights is switched on.
Replace the batteries in the remote control.
Follow steps 2.3.1 – 2.3.2 to re-code the downlights to the remote.
The lights function abnormally automatically.
Check there is not another remote control operating the lights.
Follow step 2.3.4 to clear the coding and then follow steps 2.3.1 - 2.3.2 to re-code the
