Connecting your Evoz Monitor to a New WiFi Network

Wed, 24 May 17

One of the best things about the Evoz Smart Baby Monitor is that setup is so easy – and after our recent update, even easier! Whether you’re traveling, taking advantage of a little grandma babysitting, or just going over to a friend’s house: if there’s a WiFi network, your Evoz Smart Baby Monitor can come with you. Let baby nap in a separate room while you enjoy some adult time! Here’s how to connect your Evoz monitor to a new WiFi network.

When you’re packing, bring along your Evoz monitor and your iOS or Android device(s). (If you have two devices, you might want to pack them both – see our NOTE in Step 2 below.) Make sure to pack your electronics safely away from any liquids or other items that may leak –  and don’t forget power cords and chargers!

When you get to your destination, ask for directions on how to connect to the new WiFi network. To connect the monitor:

  1. Find a good location for your smart baby monitor and plug it into a power source. Wait until the light on the monitor blinks green.
  2. Using your iOS or Android device, connect to the new WiFi network you want the monitor to use. (NOTE: Some hotels and conference centers require that you type credentials into a webpage in order to connect to a hotspot. In this case, you won’t be able to connect your Evoz Smart Baby Monitor directly to the network. But all may not be lost! If you are traveling with an extra mobile device or have a wireless router, you can set up a personal hotspot, and then connect your primary device to the personal hotspot. You’ll then have to leave both the extra device and the monitor in the room with the baby while you use your primary device with the Evoz app as usual.)
  3. Launch the Evoz app, navigate to the More tab (iOS) or app menu (Android), then choose Monitors. 
  4. Select the monitor you want to connect to.
  5. Choose Reconnect Wi-Fi.
  6. Watch the “How to install Monitor” animation for a review of the steps coming up, then walk through them:
    • Step 1: Enter your WiFi Password in the “Confirm your Wi-Fi Password” field, then tap Next.
    • Step 2: Your device will display a QR code. Show the QR code to the monitor. When the monitor successfully reads the QR code, it will make a noise and display a flashing blue light.
    • Step 3: Be patient. The light on the monitor might blink for up to a minute before the monitor connects. (You’ll see status updates on your mobile device while this happens.)
  7. A steady blue light indicates that your Evoz monitor is connected to the new WiFi network and ready for use.

If you unplug the monitor, it will take about a minute for it to reconnect to the WiFi network after you plug it in again.

The monitor retains the names and passwords of the WiFi networks you have connected it to, so when you get home you don’t need to repeat these steps. Simply plug in the Evoz Smart Baby Monitor as usual and wait for the steady blue light.

Safe travels!
