Integration

The SmartConnect can be used in different ways:

Wi-Fi Integration: Integration into existing Wi-Fi network (recommended for SmartConnect door and SmartConnect easy)

Connection via network cable: Direct connection to SmartConnect door via network cable (Only SmartConnect door). To do this, a network cable must be connected to the SmartConnect door and led out of the door. This network cable must then be connected to the router. (Recommended for SmartConnect door).

Access point mode: Direct connection to SmartConnect via Wi-Fi (factory default). This method should only be used if no home network is available, since to operate the SmartConnect you always have to switch to the Wi-Fi of the SmartConnect and therefore no Internet is available.
