How to connect Themo to Wi-Fi using an Android device?

Created by Themo Support, Modified on Wed, 1 Feb, 2023 at 3:05 PM by Themo Support

After adding new device and giving a name for your new device, you will be directed to configure the Wi-Fi Settings for your new Themo.

Note! Wifi Settings of an existing device can always be accessed via Room Settings menu by selecting Configure Device and then selecting Wi-Fi Settings.

Themo requires an internet connection to perform full functionality. In order to connect Themo to your home WiFi follow the onscreen instructions of how to enter your Wifi credentials into the device.

Note! Make sure you have your home WiFi name and password at hand before proceeding.

Open the Settings menu from your mobile phone. This may look different depending on the Android model you have.

From the phone Settings menu select Wi-Fi & internet settings and then open Wi-Fi settings. You need to find the place where all available Wi-Fi networks for your phone are being listed. 

Connect to the Wi-Fi network named eg. 'Themo_xxxxxxx'. This is a temporary Wi-Fi broadcasted by your Themo. If you are installing multiple thermostats then make sure other Themos are powered off in order to avoid confusion. 

Note! You will be connecting to a device without internet connection. Some Android models may warn you about this and disconnect automatically. To avoid this turn off your mobile data connection beforehand. If prompted to stay connected then select Yes. If you are using VPN, turn it off for the configuration process.

When connected, return to Themo app and if successfully connected then the connection screen will turn green and you can continue the configuration process.

In the following step pick your home Wi-Fi name from the list and enter the password for your home Wi-Fi network. 

Note! Your home Wi-Fi must broadcast it's name for the Themo to see it. 

If you don't see your home network from the list then make sure your home Wi-Fi name is being broadcasted and that there is sufficient Wi-Fi coverage where Themo is being installed.

When the Wi-Fi name and password are successfully entered and saved then Themo will stop broadcasting it's own Wi-Fi and will connect to your home Wi-Fi. It may take up to 1 minute for Themo app to show it is online. 

That's it. You can now return to Themo app and continue with setting schedules and controlling your device.
