The 2nd part of the setup requires Internet access. Please ensure that your device (tablet/phone) is connected (back) to your location's WiFi.
For this kit to operate, it needs to be connected to WiFi (supports 2.4 GHz) at your location. If you are requesting this kit for a remote location and you do not have the means to have someone program it at the location, we can send you pre-configured kit (simply let us know your location's WiFi SSID and Password as you order the kit). This way, it arrives ready-to-go. Simply plug it in to an electric outlet and it will start functioning.
Otherwise, please follow the instructions (below) to connect you kit to WiFi. This step is only required once (SSID and password info is retained within the kit even after power resets) unless there is a change or you want to connect your kit to another location's WiFi.
Once connected to local WiFi, your kit will be ready for the use.
USE MOBILE OR TABLET FOR INITIAL SETUP. PC might not let you connect with kit's SSID.
4. Go to your web browser and type 192.168.4.1 in URL field and hit enter.
5. The page shown to the right will appear.
6. Provide your local (home or office) SSID and Password info in the above fields and click “Connect”.
Wait for 10 seconds (do not press “Connect” again). If your device connects successfully with your local WiFi, the following message will show up.
Your kit will restart automatically and will be ready to use in 2-4 minutes.
[Supported special characters in SSID and password names are: ~ ! @ # $ ^ & * - _ + = ( ) : ; \" ' ? . "space"]
You may see a page saying "site can't be reached - took too long to respond" as shown.
Wait for a few seconds, this page will auto-refresh and proceed.
If it does not auto-refresh, then check to see if you are still connected to ppC_nointernet_xxxxxx SSID (if not, connect to it) and click "Reload".
7. Otherwise, it will return an Error (as shown below).
Now try again with the correct SSID and password info and click "Connect."
8. The SSID ppC_nointernet_xxxxxx is always broadcasted for the first 5 minutes after the kit is powered ON. Once you have programmed your kit with your local WiFi credentials, they are stored in the kit and the kit automatically connects with your WiFi after powered ON. On successful connection with your local WiFi, it stops broadcast of ppC_nointernet_xxxxxx, but after 5 min of power ON.
If you want to change the WiFi credentials or the Party-Detect setting, power OFF and then ON the kit.
The kit will start broadcasting ppC_nointernet_xxxxxx, connect to it, and go to URL 192.168.4.1.
You can now change the settings.
(Note: If the kit is not online, it will continue broadcasting the SSID ppc_nointernet_xxxxxx even after 5 minutes).
