All you need are LED light strings and passion for a music light show!
TapTap is only compatible with 110V LED lights with standard AC plug. These light strings cannot have an existing controller. LED string lights like these have been tested to be compatible with TapTap.
Light strings can be extended to your desired length but do not exceed the maximum load of 110w (or the total current 1A), otherwise, it will trip the breaker when the total current is over the maximum load.
TapTap is designed for outdoor use with IP54 classification which protects against dust deposit and water spray. However, we would advise you to shelter the unit from direct sunlight and severe weather, such as thunderstorms or heavy rain with ice. Also, we suggest to apply additional protection on the I/O connection using the AC socket covers (x6), AV dust cover caps (x2) and the phone jack plug to enhance dust and moisture protection when not in use.
If you are using TapTap outdoors, you will need waterproof extension cord covers to cover your power plug and light extensions to protect against rain, snow and dirt.
TapTap supports Wi-Fi wireless N standard protocol that can reach up to 115 ft (35M).
TapTap is only compatible with 110V LED light strings with standard AC plug. These light strings cannot have an existing controller. We do not recommend regular analog decorative light bulbs, since most analog light strings use more power wattage than TapTap ports can support.
For example, if an analog light bulb uses 4 watts and the string have 100 light bulbs, the total wattage required to run this string is 400 Watts. Asante TapTap supports a maximum of 110 Watts per port.
Light strings can be extended to your desired length as long as they do not exceed the maximum load of 110Watts for each channel (or the total current 1A).
TapTap is equipped with a safety mechanism that will trip the breaker (inside the TapTap) when the total current is over the maximum load. TapTap should only be used with LED light strings instead of regular decorative light bulbs.
At this time, Asante TapTap can only support up to 6 ports/zones. There are no ways to sync two TapTap units to be able to play a music show simultaneously.
At this time, the phone jack and RCA jacks are output ports only. For example, a headphone can be attached to phone jack and RCA jacks can be used to connect the device to your home receiver or amplifier to enhance sound.
There is no input port to be able to connect any device such as a FM radio.
Some of the other Asante Smart Home products come with a wireless access point called Home Extender. If you have a Home Extender, you can switch this to on position to utilize the Home Extender as a mean for connection to Internet. Otherwise, the switch should always be set to OFF position. If the TapTap is connected directly to your router, then the switch needs to be in OFF mode. Please note, there is no difference in operation of the device when a Home Extender is used or not used. Please note that every time this switched is moved to on or off position, you need to power cycle the TapTap for the change to take place.
YES, but there is a limitation: The show you created with your own mp3 is not transferable and cannot be shared with others.
To use your own music, just transfer the mp3 file to your smart device and launch the TapTap app. You will be able to select the music from the library and start working on your music light show. After completed, upload your work to your personal folder and then synchronize to your TapTap.
Also notice that the mp3 files you use cannot be DRM protected.
Currently there is a limit of 100 songs, however, we are working on increasing the number of songs that can be loaded.
Please make sure that your router is set to use WPA or WPA2 Authentication wireless methods. Some routers have a variety of settings such as WPA-Personal, WPA2-Personal and WPA/WPA2-Personal.

Some MP3 files have a format that do not fully comply with MP3 format and might not work with Asante TapTap due to the way they were originally downloaded or compiled. For example, a MP4A file can be named MP3, however, TapTap will not recognize this type of file. There is an easy way to correct this issue using freeware called VLC media player. Asante Technical Support can provide step by step information on how to correct this. Please contact Asante Technical Support by sending an email to email@example.com or by calling toll free 877-745-5768 Option 2. We are here to help.
This usually indicates that the load on that particular zone has exceeded the load allowed and device has shutdown the port to prevent damage. Please make sure analog lights are not used and load on that port is not more than 110Watts. A power cycle to the device will cause the port to start working again.
Please contact Asante Technical Support by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 408-435-8388 ext 511 and provide the MAC address of the TapTap you are using. This MAC address starts with 0030f0….. We can release the unit so you can claim it.
