There are two options when connecting your SmartRent hub to your local internet:
- You can connect directly via the provided Ethernet cable that is plugged into the hub. To accomplish this simply plug in the other end of the Ethernet cable into your internet router.
- You can connect over WiFi in the SmartRent mobile app.
To connect your SmartRent system to your local Wi-Fi follow the below steps based on the type of device you are using.
