More tips for a successful installation

Check your Wi-Fi connection.

Your smartphone needs to be connected to your Wi-Fi network when setting up the detector.

Improve the connection between your detector and your Wi-Fi network.

Place your detector close enough to your router or install a Wi-Fi extender to amplify your signal so that it reaches your detector’s location.

Test your detector.

First, connect the detector to your Wi-Fi, then place the detector on a damp cloth and wait a few seconds. If it’s working correctly, you’ll get an alert on your phone almost immediately.
