How to RE-pair OSRAM Lightify Flex strip?



I was recently given a set of OSRAM 73661 lights. These were previously paired with a different (unknown) hub. How do I pair them with mine now? I saw somewhere that I power them on/off for 2 seconds 5 times (10 second total time) to put them back in pairing mode - I tried that, it didn’t work.

How do I REpair these?

It should be 5 seconds on and 5 seconds off, 5 times.


Then how long until the device should be recognized? I just did the cycle twice and I still don’t have it working:

  • off (beginning state)
  • on (5 sec)
  • off (5 sec)
  • ^ 4 more times
  • on (ending here, leaving it on)


oh… does the flex strip blink if I’m successful? I did NOT get any blinking.

I don’t know if it will blink if successful.
I believe all Osram lights do, but can’t say for sure.


Looks like they do. I was counting in my head before and found to help me time the cadence better. I did 7 loops to ensure I got into the looping properly and I feel like after about a 20 second final ON stage (after the 7th cycle) the strip blinked and then paired!


So, I just had this same issue. No matter how many times I tried, I was unable to get a reset while counting by myself.

Finally, I used to time my steps and it worked the first try. Just plug/unplug on the beep, whether the lights come on or not (there’s a delay).

Just FYI for some future Osram Flex traveler.
