Connecting to WatchMon4 via Wifi

If you wish to connect via Wifi, make sure your WatchMon4 is connected to a power source between 8 and 65v DC or powered via USB using the cable provided in your starter kit.

There are two different ways to connect to your WatchMon4 via Wifi:

  1. Connecting the WatchMon4 to your router and accessing wirelessly via Wifi
  2. Connecting your computer directly to the WatchMon4's Wifi

Connecting the WatchMon4 to your router and accessing wirelessly via Wifi:

Step 1 - Click on "Menu" then click on "Tools"

 

Step 2 - Click on "Join Wifi AP" (Wifi access point / router)

 

Step 3 - Select your Wifi network / router, enter your wifi password and click the "OK" button.

Can't see any Wifi network list to connect? 

In some computers, if you can't see your Wifi network list, close this window, click on your computer's Wifi network (see picture below)

This will refresh/update your Windows Wifi network list that your computer is detecting. Go back and start again from Step 1, you should be able to see all Wifi networks listed normally.

 

Step 4  - Click on the USB icon on the left bottom corner, this will open a "Connection selector" window where you can chose to connect to your WatchMon via USB, Wifi or MQTT or none.

Step 5 - Change from "USB" to "Wifi"

Step 6 - Click on the highlighted arrow on the left to select which WatchMon you would like to connect via Wifi (in case you have more than one WatchMon in your network). Click on "Connect" then close the window.

Step 7 - Click on "Menu" then click on "Chart". This will take you to the main screen.

 

Notice that now there is a "Wifi" icon instead of USB icon and you should see the heart icon pulsing, this indicates that your system is live and properly talking to your WatchMon hardware.   

Connecting your computer directly to the WatchMon4's Wifi

This will make a direct connection between your computer and the WatchMon, very similar to a direct USB connection but using the Wifi instead.

You won't have internet access in this mode as both the computer and the WatchMon wifi will be busy talking to each other.

Step 1 - Open your computer's Wifi Network list, you should find your WatchMon wifi broadcasting there. Click on "Connect"

 

Step 2 - You will be requested to enter a "password", enter your PIN number located on the back of your WatchMon hardware  

 

Where do I find the PIN code?

in this example, the PIN code is 987654

Your Wifi password will be "pin" (in lowercase) + your PIN number = pin987654 (in this example)

 

Step 3 - Click on "Menu" then click on "Chart". This will take you to the main screen.
