Pairing the device with a mobile app

Pairing a device with a mobile application is a common procedure for connecting a device instance to a smartphone or tablet computer. During pairing, the device receives the Wi-Fi network's parameters, which it will use to connect to the Internet. Additionally, a secure connection is set up so that no one other than the device's owner can control it.

The general algorithm for pairing is as follows:

  1. When a device is not connected to a mobile app, it is powered on and automatically activates a Wi-Fi hotspot.
  2. The mobile app user initiates the pairing process.
  3. The user enters the SSID and password for the Wi-Fi network that the device will use to access the Internet
  4. The smartphone establishes a connection to the Wi-Fi hotspot set up by the smart device.
  5. A smartphone and a smart device exchange data: the smart device receives Wi-Fi parameters, and a secure connection is established.
  6. The device can be controlled remotely using a smartphone once the process is complete.

To connect the device to the 2Smart Cloud application, perform following steps:

Open the Devices screen of the mobile app.

2Smart Cloud app’s Devices screen

Click on the "Add new device" button if you don't have any connected devices yet. If the list of connected devices is not empty, press the “Add new device” icon.

When you select a device from the Market, a card with its description will appear. For any other 2Smart Cloud device, the standard pairing screen will be displayed. Click "Start pairing" or "Continue" as appropriate.

If the device was not found in the Market and you choose "Others", proceed to next step.

If the device is located in the Market, you will see its pairing instructions. In rare cases, the instruction denotes a non-standard strategy of connecting a device to an application. Follow the given instruction or click "Continue" if this button is active.

Set the Wi-Fi network's parameters so that the device can connect to the Internet.

Please note that some devices aren't compatible with 5GHz Wi-Fi networks. Check your device's specifications before pairing. If necessary, use a 2.4 GHz network.

Pairing the device with the 2Smart Cloud mobile app

Once the device is connected to the mobile application, the pairing procedure cannot be repeated; the device will no longer initiate the Wi-Fi hotspot. If you need to connect it to the mobile devices of other users, use the "Sharing" function. And if you need to transfer new WI-Fi settings to the device (for example, if your network's password has changed), use the device's reset feature to factory settings and pair again (check the reset procedure in the instructions or with the device manufacturer).
