If you are having trouble connecting to your Holman Wi-Fi Hub through the default EZ Mode, you can connect directly to the Wi-Fi Hub from your smartphone using the AP Mode.
This will connect your smartphone to your Wi-Fi Hub through a hotspot connection.
1. Turn off mobile data
Having mobile data on when using AP mode means as soon as you connect to the hotspot, your phone will revert to mobile data – this interrupts the pairing.
2. Switch pairing mode from EZ to AP.
If you are having issues with your Wi-Fi Hub connection to EZ mode, switch pairing mode and follow the prompts for access point connection (AP Mode).
Once you are back in the pairing screen, select AP Mode by tapping EZ at the top right.
3. Ensure Wi-Fi Hub is in pairing mode.
Once selected, be sure the flash mode on the picture icon ( on the screen) matches the flash mode on the device.
(This flash mode is like a breathing style flash pattern, with equal time spent flashing slowly on and off.)
If so, click confirm and connect.
If the device mode is not flashing, hold down the device button for 5 seconds until it begins to flash, click confirm on the app and connect.
4. Locate the device's hotspot.
The following screen will display the device hotspot name, make a note of this as it will be the device name listed in your Wi-Fi networks.
5. Connect to the device's hotspot.
Click 'Go to Connect'
This will take you into your phones list of available WIFI networks, select and connect to the Holman unit.
Your phone will say it is no longer on a secure network or that it has no internet/Wi-Fi signal, this is correct as we are connecting straight to the device itself, connection will revert to your WIFI after connection.
On your ‘Available Networks’ page, identify the unit and connect directly to this, wait for connection.
Please note that the unit name may vary between Wi-Fi Hubs, often the name will begin with 'Holman' followed by a series of numbers.
6. Add device from Holman Home app.
Once you have a connection, use MULTI SCREEN to exit this and go back to the Holman Home app, and tap the blue text below the 'Reconnect' button (Confirm hot spot connection, next).
Holman Home will begin to add the device.
