Appliance Configuration Screen

When the browser connects with http://192.168.3.1/ you will see the appliance configuration screen. This screen will format to fit the screen of the device you’re using so it may look different that shown above.

This configuration screen allows you to adjust the *Trust Level, and access the Device Settings menu, and configure the appliance to know your home WiFi network.

Step 4: Configure the appliance

Device Settings

  • Setting the time zone

WiFi Configuration Settings

 

The default Trust for the appliance is 3 (full), so the appliance will ask for your SSID and password. This allows the system to notify you when WiFi is up and is connected to the internet. Here are all the Trust settings:

If Trust = 3 (full)
  – Select your WiFi SSID and enter your password
If Trust = 2 (partial)
  – Select your WiFi SSID only
If Trust = 1 (minimum)
  – The appliance has no connection to your WiFi
Cellular communications only
If Trust = 0 (none)
  – All communications terminated
  – Schedule timer is the only appliance function

* About Trust:  If you’re note comfortable sharing your network credentials with the Off Hours appliance, the Trust Level settings allow you to scale back the integration of the system. If the appliance doesn’t know your password it can’t test for internet connectivity, and if it doesn’t know the WiFi name, it can’t report when it’s up or down. 

With the appliance up and running, it’s time to download and configure the mobile clients.
