Wireless Setup (Step 2)
Before getting started you will need a 2.4 GHz WLAN or WiFi enabled computer or phone, as well as the name and password of your local WiFi network.
Before you decide on a place to put HydroBot, make sure that it has access to a 2.4 GHz wireless connection or you will not be able to communicate with HydroBot.
The following steps will allow you to get your HydroBot up and running quickly and easily.
- Plug in the two chords coming out of the hole in HydroBot’s case.
- After a few minutes the HydroBot should show up on the list of WLAN or WiFi networks on your computer under the SSID: HydroBot Setup followed by the last 4 characters of its serial number
- Click on this network and navigate to the local page that HydroBot creates: http://10.0.0.1/
- From here you can enter your login information for your local WLAN or WiFi network by finding your network on the drop down menu.
- At this point the following screen will appear. If you entered the wrong password you will have to wait 5 minute to try again starting with step 2. Otherwise you will be able to connect to Hydro.Bot by switching back to your local WLAN or WiFi network and clicking on the red provided on the page.
- After waiting a few minutes for the HydroBot to establish its connection refresh the page. Now you will be able to name your HydroBot and create an account using your email address and a password.
- Now that you have completed this process, HydroBot will automatically associate your HydroBot with your email address, and you will be able to login by entering your email address at My.Hydro.Bot.
