Why is a Twinkly account required to use the App?

Reasons why you need a Twinkly Account

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


Creating a Twinkly Account is required to better manage possible cases of assistance, furthermore, it is also necessary to use Twinkly with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Apple Home Kit.


To use the app you need to create an account and associate it with either your email address, your Facebook credential, or your Apple ID.

Through the app, you can download new effects from the store, edit them or create your own, and also map the layout of your installation.

Be careful: if you log out of your Twinkly app or if you uninstall it, all the personal effects will be lost (but not the downloaded ones).


All the personal data are subjected to our Privacy Policies ( see here the complete Privacy Policy document)
