Step 2: Connect your home appliance with your home network

Click on “Add appliance“ to start the Home Connect installation. There are two ways in which home appliances can be integrated into your home network:

Wireless Protected Setup:

Switch on your home appliance and go to the appliance settings. Navigate to Automatic Network Connection (also called AC) on the home appliance and click on connect. Approach now your Wi-Fi router and activate the WPS function. Please refer to your router manual for further details.

Step-by-step Setup
How to connect your home appliance - if you have router with no WPS button:

Switch on your home appliance and go to the appliance settings. Navigate to Manual Network Connection (also called SA) on the home appliance and click on connect. Since this step may vary on different home appliances, please see the printed installation guide (supplied with your home appliance or download below). The home appliance now establishes its own temporary Wi-Fi network with the name „HomeConnect“. Take your Smartphone or Tablet and connect it with this temporary network (password: "HomeConnect"). Then return to the Home Connect app and enter your home network credentials which will be passed on to the home appliance to connect itself within your home network.

How to connect a home appliance to the app:

If the relevant home appliance is logged into your home network, all you need to do is connect it to your Home Connect account. To do this, open the Home Connect app on your mobile device and log in. Then, activate the "Connect to the app" function on your home appliance. Since this step may vary on different home appliances, please see the insert (supplied with your home appliance). The app automatically detects your appliance. To complete the installation process, select "Add device" in the app.
