Add a WiFi network (new SSID)


  • This feature is available in the mobile app for some deployments.
  • While adding a new network, if you see an error message that there is not enough space to add a new network,  you will be prompted to delete an existing network. Removing the existing network will permanently remove the network and this cannot be undone.
