What do I need to set it up?
All you need is:
- A Wi-Fi Router with an active internet connection
- A Alexa device (eg. Echo, Echo dot)
- A Homeemity device
How to set it up?
It’s an easy step by step process. Just connect to the Wi-Fi network called “HOMEEMITY_XXXX" and a configuration panel should open automatically. If not, open the web address http://10.1.1.1 and follow the steps. After that, open the Alexa App on your phone, search for the HOMEEMITY skill and link the same account you have used to set up your device. Account can be created while setting up the device or in the Alexa App.
