Assistance during your first installation

In a remote assistance scenario, please connect router to Internet. Our Support Team will be able to log into the account you are setting up and also directly to Linux in Core. Questions are handled via a phone call. Remote assistance is free.

Setup new location

  • Connect Core using a LAN cable with WiFi router. We recommend using your own router. If there is no internet on site, please do not forget to add your Global account into users list so that you can access the location remotely later once internet will be available.
  • After setup, you can take your router away with you. The system will still be able to control temperature and other devices.
