Key Light – Quick Start Guide

Key Light is a device that requires both hardware and software setup.

It comes with a detailed Quick Start Guide in the box, but here is some additional information for you.

 
Physical Assembly


• The Key Light panel has 4 mounting screw holes - one on each edge.  You can choose the one that best meets your needs.

• Tighten the clamp to your desk, but do not over tighten.

• When loosening a grip on the pole, it might take a small amount of effort to start the process.  However, you shouldn't have to use too much force.

 
Software and Pairing


Key Light can be paired to a 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi network using a macOS, Windows or iOS device that features a Wi-Fi connection.

You only need to pair Key Light once.  After that, it will be connected to your network, even after you turn it off and on again many times. Then, you can control it via software.

Key Light is controlled using the Control Center software for macOS or Windows.

Visit the Elgato.com Downloads page, and select Control Center.
