Default AP password: 12345678


Wait a few seconds until a web appears showing you all Wi-Fi networks that the device has found. Select yours, and enter password then click the Join button! The module will try to connect the selected Wi-Fi network, this will take a couple of seconds.

Note: If the given password is wrong, you can Reset the Wi-fi settings by holding the Reset button for 10sec. After successful Wi-Fi connection, the Status LED will blink 2 times!

Since iOS14 the Home app only shows 2 options for watering time! Don't worry, in the Eve app you can adjust the time from 10 seconds up to 4 hours! 😄 For safety reasons when the device loose Wi-Fi connection during an active watering period it will turn off the Valve to prevent you from flooding 😄 Status LED will flash 2 times every 2 minute to indicate Wi-Fi lost error!
