OhmConnect rewards you for saving energy. The more you save, the more you can earn, which means powering down the most energy hogging appliances like your fridge, freezer, entertainment system, and microwave is the key to easy and rewarding energy saving.
Not many of us have the patience to run around our homes to power down during OhmConnect's energy saving events, or we simply forget. This is where your OhmPlug helps: simply plug an energy hogging appliance into your OhmPlug, and we automatically power those energy hogs on and off, earning you rewards without needing to lift a finger!
Where to start? Our #1 recommendation is to put your OhmPlug onto your fridge. Concerned about your food? The FDA has reported food can be in an unpowered refrigerator for up to four hours, so no need to stress!
Ready to set up your new OhmPlug and start saving? All you need is your OhmPlug, a phone or tablet, a 2.4 GHz WiFi network and an outlet. Tip: you can use any outlet for the setup, but don't forget to connect an energy hogging appliance to your OhmPlug later.
Log into your OhmPlug App using your OhmConnect email and password to set up your smart plug and set your settings.
Connect your OhmPlug to your WiFi network to control it using your phone and enable OhmConnect to power it down automatically.
Log into the app by using your OhmConnect credentials.
Choose "United States of America" from the country drop down list and then enter the email address and password you used to sign up with OhmConnect. Then click "Log In"
Please note that choosing "Sign Up" in the OhmPlug App is not necessary (and may cause issues). If you haven't yet signed up with OhmConnect, please visit our website and sign up before continuing to step 3.)
The first time you open the OhmPlug App you may get up to 4 pop-up messages. Read carefully and choose the settings you would like.
The last pop-up allows the App to discover your new smart plug and easily connect it to your WiFi network. We suggest clicking "OK" to this to make your setup easier.
Before you start, make sure your smart phone is currently connected to the same 2.4 GHz home WiFi network that you are connecting your OhmPlug to.
Tap the ➕ in the top right hand of your screen if you're adding your very first OhmPlug. If this is not your first OhmPlug, add your additional OhmPlug by clicking the "Add Device" button.
Under "Add Manually", click "OhmPlug".
Type or select your WiFi name and enter your password for your home 2.4GHz WiFi network. Click "Next".
Plug your OhmPlug into a wall outlet after it has been unplugged for 10 seconds and then click "Next".
Afterwards, press and hold the reset (power) button on the OhmPlug for 5 seconds until the indicator light starts to blink. Then click "Next".
Lastly, confirm the indicator light is blinking about 3 times per second. Tap the checkbox to confirm light is blinking and tap "Next".
The OhmPlug App will now scan your home WiFi network to find your OhmPlug. This process can take up to 2 minutes. Please ensure your OhmPlug is in a location where it will likely be able to connect to your WiFi Router.
Once the OhmPlug App finds your new OhmPlug, you will see a message that your device has been added successfully. You can rename your device if you like. Click "Save".
Congratulations, you have successfully set up your OhmPlug!
You can now visit app.ohmconnect.com and log in to see your new device connected to the OhmConnect dashboard.
Note: If you encounter any problems during the above steps, you can press and hold the reset button on the OhmPlug for 10 seconds to reset your OhmPlug as per the included OhmPlug manual. If you're still having difficulty, please click here to contact OhmConnect Help.
