Install & setup your Foobot

First you need to download the Foobot application for your individual platform :

Apple Store.
Google Play.

Once downloaded, install it on your smartphone/tablet. Please remain connected to the WiFi you want your Foobot be tied to.

Open it and tap on I’ve got a foobot.

Then tap on Setup your Foobot.

Please keep a distance of no more than 5 feet (2m)  between Foobot and your WiFi router (this is just for the setup process). Power the device using the USB cable and provided USB/sector adaptator. You should see the Foobot lights gradually light up blue. When done, tap NEXT.

Gently turn the Foobot upside down (Foobot inscription must be on top of device, as on picture below), then tap NEXT.

Wait for Foobot to blink blue in a quick succession. Tap NEXT.

Look at your Foobot, it’s going to blink 5 times. If it’s blue, it means connection was successful. In that case, you can skip to the next paragraph and go directly to “Did it blink blue?” section.

If Foobot blinked orange, it means connection has failed. Don’t worry, you won’t have to start again the whole process.

First, let’s check whether your Foobot is in manual set up mode: turn it upside down. It must blink orange very quickly. Once done, you can put it straight (Foobot logo should be point to the bottom of the device).

 

Click on Ready button, it leads you to your smartphone’s WiFi settings section and select foobot-config network. You might need to refresh your networks list.

To finish stay on desktop iPhone’s view and wait for wireless network icon  to show up (iOS devices) or wait for « connected » mention (Android devices). Once it’s displayed, go back in Foobot app.

You can now enter your WiFi’s passphrase and tap NEXT once you’re sure about writing.

 

 /!\ Please note it takes up to 5 secondes for Foobot to react to this new attempt so be careful when looking at « 5 blue blinks » /!\

 

“Did it blink blue 5 times?” is what you should have on your smartphone. Tap YES if Foobot blinked blue five times.

Then rename Foobot if you want and enter your account's credentials (email and password). You're done!
