I cannot edit the project even though I have been added as a collaborator
Only the project owner decides who can edit the project and to what extent. Ask the project owner to give you the appropriate permissions: only an “Installer”, “Manager”, or “Owner” can edit the project. Silvair does not set the permissions for projects.
I cannot revoke access for one of the collaborators
Access cannot be revoked for a user who has the “Owner” role in the project. There must always be one owner per project.
I cannot upload a floor plan or site plan in the web app
You can upload only a JPEG or PNG file with a maximum size of 10 MB.
Occupancy and energy use tabs are not shown in the project
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to enable these features for your project. In your email, include the ID or URL of the project.
Occupancy and energy monitoring data are incorrect
Make sure that the energy profiles of your devices are correctly defined.
If your energy use seems too low, check if there has been sufficient activity in the area. Data may have been rounded down and shown as zero.
If none of the above helped, contact email@example.com. Explain why you expect different data, provide your project ID or URL, and attach screenshots of the data charts.
I have lost the QR code from an already commissioned EnOcean switch and cannot add the switch to my project
If the switch has been added to a project, you can find the QR code in the Commissioning report. To get the report, open the project in the Silvair web app and click Report > Download. Then, open the report and search for “QR” or scroll to the zone that has the switch added.
If the switch has already been removed from the project, contact EnOcean to generate the QR code for the switch again.
I cannot remove a zone
You must first remove all devices from the zone before you can remove the zone. In the Silvair mobile app, go to the zone and remove all devices one by one. Then, in the Silvair web app, try to remove the zone again.
Light level in a zone is lower than expected
Make sure that the number and power of the installed luminaires is sufficient.
In the Silvair web app, go to the project and area.
On the "Commissioning" tab, click the zone and then .
Make sure that the light levels are set as intended.
Set "Max." of the "Low/high-end trim" to 100%.
In the Silvair mobile app, go to the zone and tap "Configure all" to configure all devices in the zone again.
If a Daylight harvesting scenario is used, see SN-209 Silvair Daylight Harvesting.

If none of the above helped, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include:
project ID or URL,
gateway S/N (serial number; on the back of the housing),
gateway status (in the web app, go to a project > Gateways).
Firmware of a device cannot be updated
Make sure that you use the Silvair mobile app for iOS/iPadOS.
Make sure that your mobile device is in range (15 meters / 50 feet) of the device to be updated.
Try to update again a few times.
Power the device off/on and try to update it again a few times.
If the device still cannot be updated, contact email@example.com. In your email, include the cryptosets of all devices that cannot be updated. To find the cryptoset of a device, open the mobile app for iOS/iPadOS, go to the Devices tab, and tap “Diagnostic”. Search for Silvair DFU Server > Device Info and note the number next to “csid”.
I cannot upload a floor plan or site plan in the mobile app
You can upload a plan only in the web app, not in the mobile app.
When I try to add a device to the zone, there is next to the device name and the “Device is not activated” message appears.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and send a request to check the device activation. In your email include:
I cannot add a device. The device appears as “Failed” instead of “Completed”.
Move as close to the device as possible.
Make sure that your mobile device is connected to the internet and that Bluetooth is on.
Go back to the list of devices and tap "Configure all".
Move to the zone and do a mesh quality test. In the Silvair mobile app for iOS/iPadOS, go to the project and in the area field, tap > Mesh quality > Start test.
I do not see a device to add in the mobile app
Move as close to the device as possible. Then, in the Silvair mobile app, set the slider to All.
If the device does not flash a few times after power on, or the status LED flashes every two seconds, it means that the device has been added to a different zone or project. In such a case do one of the following steps to remove this device from the zone or project.
Refer to the device datasheet for instructions about how to reset the device. In most cases you need to press and hold a reset button for some time. But some devices have a switch that triggers a reset when a magnet is applied to them. When the reset is triggered, the status LED will flash every one second. After the reset is complete, the status LED will flash every 0.3 seconds.
In the Silvair mobile app, find which zone the device has been added to. Tap next to the device name to make sure that this is the correct device. If the correct device flashes quickly, tap .
If the device has firmware version 2.30 or later, power the device off and on, and try to add the device to the zone again.
Firmware version 2.30 introduced the time limited provisioning parameter. After the defined time has passed, the device must be powered off and on to be able to be provisioned.
I cannot add or move zones in the mobile app
Ask the project owner about your role in this project. An “Installer” or “Manager” can drag and drop the zones. Maybe you need to zoom in to the floor plan or site plan to be more precise when dropping the zone?
I have changed some settings in the web app, but the zones still work with the old settings
If you change the settings in the web app, you must configure the zones again. When you are on site, open the mobile app and navigate to the project and area. Go to the zone with an exclamation mark and tap “Configure all”. All devices in the zone will then receive the new settings.
I have changed or removed a predefined scene in the web app, but in the mobile app I still see the old settings
In the mobile app for iOS/iPadOS, go to the zone and tap Settings > Scene > Configure. Then, tap and select “Restore” or “Remove”.
I cannot see total lifetime power consumption (kWh) and real power (W) for my device in the Silvair mobile app for iOS/iPadOS
Not all devices support the measurement of these parameters. To find out if your device supports measuring power consumption and power, contact the manufacturer.
When the device is connected to power, has not been provisioned, and its firmware version is 2.30 or later, the light turns off after some time, or it is off when it’s bright and it is on when it’s dark.
If the device is an ambient light sensor or it is equipped with a motion sensor, such behavior for an unprovisioned device is expected. This means that the device firmware has been programmed with the Unprovisioned behavior parameter set to Occupancy control or Photocell control. With the Occupancy control setting, the light turns off after some time has passed since the last occupancy detection. With the Photocell control setting, the light turns off when it’s bright and turns on when it’s dark.
A device alert says “Some features are not supported by the device and may not work as expected”
The firmware version of the device is not up to date or some features have not been provided by the device manufacturer.
Check the device's firmware version. If it is not the latest, update it. However, before the firmware can be updated, the manufacturer must contact Silvair Support to request over-the-air update (OTAU) activation for a specific line of devices. After the OTAU is enabled for the devices used in your project, continue as described in SN-208 OTA firmware update for provisioned devices.
For more information about features that are not supported, contact the device manufacturer.
A device alert says “This device is not configured correctly”
Device configuration failed or was interrupted. Tap “Repair” to configure the device.
A device alert says “The scenes on this device are not configured correctly”
To configure scenes, see Scenes A and B setup section of the SN-200 Silvair Commissioning user manual.
A zone alert says “Scenes configuration required”
Configuration of scenes was interrupted or is in progress. To configure scenes, see Scenes A and B setup section of the SN-200 Silvair Commissioning user manual.
A zone alert says “Configuration required”
Configuration was not completed, changes were made to the zone profile or zone linking, or the project version was updated in the web app. To configure the devices, go to the zone in the Silvair mobile app and tap “Configure all”.
A zone alert says “Calibration required”
Daylight control in the zone is not calibrated, or a light sensor has not been selected to control the light in the zone or has been removed from the zone.
If the zone has a profile with a Daylight harvesting scenario, see the Daylight harvesting calibration section of the SN-200 Silvair Commissioning user manual.
If the zone has a profile with a Photocell scenario, see the Photocell calibration section of the SN-200 Silvair Commissioning user manual.
A zone alert says “Risk of exceeding the RPL limit”
If this alert appears, there is a risk of reaching the limit of the number of devices in the zone. To remove this alert, remove all devices from all zones in the project. Then, add some devices to these zones again and add the rest of devices to some new zones.
To avoid this alert in the future:
Create smaller zones.
Use devices with firmware version 2.18 or later. Update the firmware if its version is earlier than 2.18.
See SN-213 Recommendations for complex lighting installations to take into account the factors that contribute to the RPL of a device.
Do not use zone linking so that one zone is controlled manually from more than 28 zones.
