Additional Information:

  • Only one account can pair with an appliance. However, multiple users or devices can use the same account.
  • If more than one phone is used to connect, the appliance may only be paired to one phone during setup. The second phone can be paired after setup is complete on the first.
  • Products from multiple homes can be connected on the app. It is necessary to be in front of each appliance to do the pairing procedure.
  • Pairing appliances is optional. Appliances do not need to be connected to the internet to be used.
