Update WiFi credentials

If you want to update your Foobot’s WiFi credentials, you need to go to your Foobot’s Settings, and tap on Update WiFi credentials label and follow the steps described.

As per setup process, please not you need to respect a distance of 5 feet (2m) maximum between Foobot and your WiFi router. Power the device using the USB cable and provided adaptator (only) if it’s not done already. You should see the Foobot lights up blue gradually. When done, tap NEXT.

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

Wait for Foobot blinking blue fast and tap NEXT.

Turn upside down again (Foobot inscription must be at the bottom of device, as on picture below) and tap NEXT.

You can now connect Foobot by entering your WiFi password. As you will notice, network field is already filled. Tap NEXT when done. Note that you have 5 minutes before system switches to manual configuration mode.

Wait for Foobot to blink blue fast. 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 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 all the process.

First, let’s check your Foobot is in correct mode to be setup manually: turn it upside down. It must blink orange very quickly. Once done, you can put it straight (Foobot mention at the bottom).

 

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

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.
