The central spot & COB LED provide white outputs while the side LEDs provide red outputs and are controlled with the push buttons on top of the light. The right hand power button operates the torch normally and each press will cycle through spot high, spot low, spot flashing, red and red flashing, while holding the button down in any state will access the flood COB LED either indiviudally or combined with the other outputs. If in any mode for longer thatn 5 seconds the next press will turn the light off instead of cycling the modes and the last used setting will remembered when it is next turned on.
There is also a sensor control switch so that the torch can be turned on and off by waving your hand in front of the torch (within 15 cm range), which is perfect for when you're carrying out tasks where your hands may be dirty so you don't want to touch the torch. To operate the torch with sensor control you can activate it by pressing the left button either while the light is on in any mode to use a particaular setting, or if pressed from off it will only access either the spot high output with a quicky press or the flood output with a press and hold. Pressing either button will turn the sensor mode off.
