Smart Controller

  1. Install the app from Google Play OR using the APK file above.

  2. Start the app.

  3. It will ask for GPS (Location) permissions, this is normal:
    Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), specifically the active scan for devices could be used to locate the phone, for example inside a mall. For this reason, it’s in this permission category. Don’t fear, we don’t use GPS at all!

  4. The rest should be pretty self-explanatory, just play around with it!

  5. Do not cancel the firmware upgrade, just put the phone down and wait for a few minutes.


If you haven’t updated your NEBULITE Smart product since the Kickstarter Campaign, AND have an iPhone newer than 6s, you will NEED to do the first update from an old iPhone or any Android.


The oooold bootloader is faulty and you will brick your NEBULITE and will need a PC or Mac to fix it.

Please read below (“Update bootloader via Mac or PC”) if you prefer that anyway, otherwise please grab the nearest Android or old iPhone, install the app and get it over with :)!

The app is still in beta state, so you need to install “TestFlight” first:

  1. Install TestFlight from the App Store

  2. Click this link to join the test:

  3. Install NEBULITE Smart by clicking “Install”
