What does ‘layout’ mean?

Description of the Layout feature on Twinkly App

Applies to Twinkly Generation I and Generation II devices, Twinkly PRO and Twinkly Plus.


1. What does the Layout of your Twinkly installation mean?

In the Layout section, you can find a preview of your current setting's Layout.

The Layout is simply the result of the mapping procedure performed and a scan of your Twinkly installation

2. Layout option

If you have already mapped your devices,  you will find a perfect track of all the LEDs recognized by the procedure and mapped out in the space, as in the picture below.

Otherwise, you will see the screen to start the mapping process


3. How the Layout Editor feature Works?

This feature allows you to make changes to your layout to further match your needs and looks even more great in reproducing effects.

Starting from the layout of your installation you can modify its X, Y and Z coordinates, so that you can flip the installation, rotate it, move it up and down and right and left

4. Important notes

  • If you wish to redo the mapping procedure and get a new layout, simply click on "Restore".

  • The function key "Map Lights", allows you to start the mapping procedure you find described in this article, step by step.

  • If you have a Sync group, you won't find the "Map lights" function key, as the devices need to be mapped individually before creating the group.

  • If you have mapped your string in the past and are accessing the app with a different account, you have to delete the device from the device list (swipe left and then click on "delete") in order to map it again: the complete procedure can be found here.

  • To create an effect in 'Drawing mode' LEDS mapping is required (except for Line and Flex which have a linear design).

  • For linear installations, Mapping is not necessarily required, because the effect will naturally run from the first to the last LED, therefore you don’t need to detect them. If you have a Home range product (Line & Flex). if the device is not mapped, the default layout is applied:
