The challenge is asking you to set the WifiLamp object to a "new color".

So for example:

// **** Step 1
// If I was to make an instance of Wifi Lamp, I would do so like this

// Instance
let myWifiLamp = WifiLamp()

// **** Step 2
// If I wanted to change the color of the lamp I would have to call the "switchColor" method

 myWifLamp.switchColor(Color.rgb(123.3, 223.3, 323.3, 423.3))

// OR

let myNewColor = Color.hsb(22.0, 22.0, 22.0, 22.00)

So in order to implement this method what shall we do?

  func switchColor(_ color: Color) {
    self.color = color

Hope this helps you a bit.

I got it Thanks a lot man! May God bless u million times! Appreciate it!)
