How do I fix my Wi-Fi connection?
If you see an “X” or “Z” beside the signal bars in the top right corner of your thermostat, it means your Wi-Fi connection is not working. You will also see “Offline” above the current temperature in the “Appliances” tab and if you try to use the MyEnergate app, you will get a “Request Timeout”.
This can happen if you change your Internet router, router password or SSID. If this is the case, you will need to follow the instructions to configure your Wi-Fi connection again. Follow the instructions in Get Started, Step 3 – Connect Your Wi-Fi.
If you have made no changes to your Internet router, then try the following steps to restore communication between the utility website and your device:
- Confirm that your router is powered up and is working properly (for example, that you can use it to access the Internet via a computer).
- Power cycle the HōlHōm/Foundation by removing it from the backplate for 10 seconds, and then re-attaching it.
- If this does not resolve the problem, unplug your Internet router, wait for approximately 10 seconds, and then plug it back in.
The signal bars in the top right corner of the HōlHōm/Foundation should show a “W” (for Wi-Fi) or “D” (for dual) if it is properly connected to the internet. If it shows an “X” or “Z”, follow the instructions in the Wi-Fi Configuration Guide to configure your Wi-Fi connection. If this does not resolve the problem, please report the problem to support.
