Getting Started with Legacy Devices (2024)

Some things to consider before you connect to Wi-Fi:

  • Does the web connection require users to enter information on any type of captive portal/login page? This can block our devices from successfully authenticating. This will require IT involvement.
  • Our Wi-Fi devices only support 2.4GHz networks. These devices will not connect to 5GHz networks. If bandsteering is enabled on your network, you may need to have it disabled.
  • Confirm these ports are open:
    • TCP Port 8883 outbound (MQTT over SSL), destination address:, IP addresses and
    • Port 123 (NTP), host:

Setup Your Device:

  • Unbox your Stat Temp monitor and sensor(s).
  • Place the sensor in its desired location.
  • Plug the device into power with the supplied power cord.
  • Turn the device on by sliding the power switch into the up position.

When you turn your monitor on, the LED will be blinking BLUE.

If your device is not blinking blue, follow these steps to put the device into listening mode:

1. Insert a paperclip into the bottom pinhole on the left side (above the LED) and hold it there. The LED will turn royal blue.

2. Continue to hold the paperclip in the bottom pinhole. The LED will stay royal blue or turn magenta.

3. If the LED stays royal blue, release the paper clip when the light starts to rapidly flash royal blue (about 8 seconds).

4. If the LED flashes magenta, immediately release the paperclip. The device will start flashing green.

5. Reinsert the paperclip into the bottom pinhole and hold it until it rapidly flashes blue, then release the paperclip.

If the light turns yellow, you will need to reset the device and start over. To reset the device, push a paperclip into the top pinhole and release it.

Connect To Wi-Fi:

Please note that before connecting your device to Wi-Fi, ensure that the sensor is plugged in and the monitor is in listening mode (indicated by fast blinking royal blue light). directions above
