Creating an account

The first time you use the app, you must register an account using your mobile phone number or an e-mail address and a password.

NOTE: It is mandatory to select the correct country code while registering using e-mail address.

When you create your account, a country code is set based on your location.

Using your account, you can become a member of one or more Homes ( Data stores). You can operate any devices that belong to the Home, from any location that has Internet access, using any compatible mobile phone that has the app installed.

NOTE: An account cannot be logged in on multiple smart devices and used at the same time.

Data stores

Home and account data is assigned to one of several data stores, depending on the country code selected at registration, and the country code of the user who creates a Home. These data stores are independent of each other. The major data centres are:

  • China

  • Europe

  • United States of America

  • India

For more information, refer to the country table Data centre.

IMPORTANT: Home and user account data is assigned to one data store and cannot be transferred to another. Therefore, a user can only join Homes with data assigned to the same data store as the user’s account.
TIP: If you want to join a Home in another country (for example, if you are visiting and staying with family), create a new account using the same country as displayed in the Home location. This way, the data for your new account will be assigned to the same data store as the Home.
