Since the release of the beta firmware and control app, Kessil has gathered a tremendous amount of feedback and have been working extremely hard to to further increase ease of use and stability. Now the latest control apps and firmware (v3.4) are available for both Windows and Mac.

  • Added “Auto Refresh” feature – Once locked, light will refresh itself to the current program 2 minutes after touching the manual buttons (with exception of the Power and Program buttons).
  • Added “Default Demo Program” feature – Cycles through all demo effects with the Program button.
  • Added factory reset function – Unwanted programs or settings of light can now be completely cleared (press “down” and “+” then disconnect unit from power).
  • Power outage recovery has been improved. Light will now save program status every 5 minutes (once an hour previously).
  • Improved the lunar cycle so the moonlight is much dimmer than before.
