Smart Bike Lights


Smart Bike Lights is a data field IQ Connect application for Garmin devices, that displays and controls ANT+ lights. Garmin has a built-in "Auto" light mode setting, which automatically adjusts the light intensity based on the ambient light or time of day. The issue with "Auto" mode is that is not configurable and that is why this application introduces a special "Smart" mode, which is fully configurable based on sunset, sunrise, speed, ... (check all filters below). The source code is available on GitHub:, where issues/feature requests can be opened.</p>

Struggling a bit however I am sure this will work. I have both Varia's head and tail from Garmin with 1080 plus and I want the setup to work automatically based on the time of the day (i.e. day, night etc.) using this application

20 de julio de 2021

the app works flawlessly! I recommend it!! the only part the needs improving, is a more detailed description inside the configuration page..I spent an hour to set up and test my light, it's not so easy but it's satisfying at the end! I don't get the % of deceleration how it works and the minimum time active Inside any filter but even those, I don't have any problem!

Thanks for the positive feedback! I will try to add a more detailed description with samples in the near future. The acceleration filter calculates the difference between the current speed and the speed measured one second ago. In case the current speed is 10km/h and the previous speed was 15km/h, the acceleration will be -50%. The minimum time active setting will leave the configured light mode for at least the configured seconds. In case you set it to 5 seconds, the light mode on the filter group will be used for at least 5 seconds, once all filters conditions in that group are met. The filters conditions are tested every second, so even if in the following few seconds one of the filter condition won't be met, the light mode of that filter group will still be used as we are still within 5 seconds.

Could you make some "slots" for light configurations? At the moment, changing the light mode means entering the code and synchronizing all over again. It would be more convenient to be able to quickly switch between several (two or three) already entered configurations :)

Thanks for the review! That is a great idea but I am not sure how would switching between configurations work as the user interaction is very limited with data fields. In case you have an idea on how it should be implemented, please let us know on the following Garmin thread:

Really helpful developer... Helped to get the right set up for Radar and UT800 for use when riding in a group.

Why do i have numbers(1,2,5,63,62) on the screen instead of text(high, low flash etc.)? Is this changeable? And how? I have the bontrager ion rt200 and the bontrager flare.

Because you need to configure the lights using Lights Configurator. Please check the "How to use" guide here:
