Wi-Fi mode connection- Wiser Hub

AP mode (Wi-Fi) is used to commission the Hub via wireless (Wi-Fi) rather than Ethernet. There might be a situation when Ethernet mode of commissioning is not available for commissioning the Hub . For example, the router location or commissioning new home with router not available yet, therefore, the installer can choose AP mode.
  • The AP mode (Wi-Fi) is supported in the hub . The date code must be 2037 and above when it is moved from out of the box. To update the latest firmware, connect the hub to the Ethernet (see Ethernet mode connection- Wiser Hub).

  • To commission the hub by AP mode, a user must have an account in the App. For more information on creating a user account see Creating an app account.

  • The Wi-Fi in the mobile phone must be active.

  • The Wi-Fi router, hub and mobile phone must be as close as possible.
