Troubleshooting SnugStat App Connectivity
The SnugStat Wi-Fi Thermostat is simple, easy to connect and
go, but if you’re having problems connecting to your router – don’t worry, this
easy guide is here to help.
Firstly, it is important to familiarise yourself with your
thermostat, our Snug touch-screen thermostats and our SnugStat Wi-Fi thermostats look very similar, so please consult your product guide before continuing.
Most domestic internet routers come with ‘dual-band’
support, this means that the router can operate at 2.4GHz and 5GHz speeds. The
2.4GHz is a less-powerful signal with longer reach, while the 5GHz is more
concentrated and powerful. Smart phones have the ability to swap between these
signals automatically, but our SnugStat thermostat does not need rapid
connection for complete functionality. Therefore, it is tied to the 2.4GHz signal.
In order to pair the two devices, they must be connected to
the same Wi-Fi signal, but while inside your home your phone is connected to
the more powerful 5GHz signal, in contrast to the SnugStat on 2.4GHz. In theory
you could stand at the end of your garden with barely any signal and sync your
stat, but there is an easier way.
You need to:
- Visit your internet provider’s website, either on your Smart phone or PC
- Separate dual-band support into two separate signals
- On your Smart phone, the two speeds of connection will appear in your Wi-Fi Network Settings
- Connect to 2.4Ghz signal
- Open the SnugStat App and connect the SnugStat Wi-Fi Thermostat
- Reconnect your Smart phone to the 5GHz signal for high-speed internet (your SnugStat will still be connected)
