Scan the QR code

  • The app will ask you to scan the QR code on the bottom of your Beacon using your phone's camera; tap Scan Code
  • Give the app access to take pictures/record video; tap Allow
  • This opens the camera app and a frame, and you see the message Position QR code in this frame
  • Point your smartphone at the code and hold it steady
  • A scanning line will move vertically across the code
  • When the code is successfully scanned the rectangle will flash green

If you don’t want to give permission to use your camera, you can enter the information from the sticker on the Beacon manually. To do this tap Enter Manually.

Step 4 – Create your account

Notes:

  • Some instances of Nokia WiFi (this varies bases on your operator) are not supporting account setup and this account creation set will be skipped. In these cases, to sign into the mobile app the credentials on the bottom of the root Beacon should be used.
  • We do not support multiple networks per account at the moment (you must set up a new account with a unique email address if you are managing more than one network).

 

Email address

  • The first and last characters cannot be spaces
  • It must follow standard email address conventions: @ occurs after 1 or more characters; a period (.) occurs after 1 or more characters after @

Password
This must be 8 to 24 characters in length

  • First character cannot be a special character
  • Must contain at least two character types (letters, numbers or special characters)
  • Special characters can include
    ! # + , - . / : = @ _
  • The same character cannot occur consecutively 8 times

When that’s all done, tap Create.
