If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod, the thermostat can be added as an accessory and you can copy the Wi-Fi information from your iOS device. If you have a difficult Wi-Fi password, using an iOS device is simplifies the Wi-Fi setup.

 

Note: Your iOS device will need to be connected to a 2.4 GHz network. 

 

Alternatively, "Select Wi-Fi Network," choose you network from the list,  enter your Wi-Fi password, then tap "Connect."
