Quick Install Reference Guide
Best Install Practices, do not install in the ground first. Collect the fixtures together on a table that you will group, use a 15foot length of wire, with an appropriate transformer (no twist in fuse) for wattage draw. On the End user/ home owners phone install the APP from the ABRenter.com website, write down the pin that will be 6 digits, and make the group names and install the fixtures within the group make sure to have the mesh within the group of the lamp.
