Setting up your Atmocube

Atmocube Wi-Fi Setup Guide

This guide explains how to connect the Atmocube to the Wi-Fi network.

Prepare for Configuration

Network LED indicates your Atmocube is ready to establish connection

Before attempting to connect the Atmocube to the Wi-Fi network, make sure the device is turned on. If the Wi-Fi connection is not available, the network indicator will flash blue, indicating that the Atmocube is ready to be connected to the Wi-Fi.

The Atmocube supports 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi networks with WPA/WPA2/WPA3 encryption. The Atmocube also supports connection to unencrypted Wi-Fi networks via the Atmocube Business application, currently only on Android.

The Atmocube does not support connection to hidden Wi-Fi networks on channel 13.

For security, it is recommended to use a password-protected Wi-Fi network.

To reset the Wi-Fi connection, please see the “Reset Wi-Fi settings” section below.

Configuring Wi-Fi via the mobile app

Step 1.

Download and install the Atmocube Business app.

Available from the App Store
Available from Google Play

Step 2.

Launch the app and follow the instructions.

Step 3.

Select the Wi-Fi network to connect to and enter the network password. Use a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network. It is currently not possible to use the Atmocube with a 5 GHz Wi-Fi network.

Step 4.

After the network password has been accepted, the Atmocube will connect to the network.

If the connection is successful, the power and Wi-Fi indicators will turn a solid green color.

To remotely monitor air quality, connect the Atmocube to the cloud dashboard at atmocube.app by entering the Device ID, which can be found on the back of the device.

Configuring Wi-Fi via a USB Flash Drive

Step 1

Generate a config file with the Wi-Fi network settings using the Atmocube configuration tool and download the file.

Note: Choose the correct model number for the Atmocube from the drop-down menu on the configuration page. The model number can be located on the back of the device.

Step 2

Save the config.json file to a USB flash drive.

Step 3

Disconnect the Atmocube from the power source.

Step 4

Insert the USB flash drive into the USB slot in the Atmocube.

Step 5

Re-connect the Atmocube to the power source.

Step 6

Once the Atmocube is turned on, the config.json file will be accessed from the USB flash drive.

If the configuration is successful, the power and Wi-Fi indicators will turn solid green.

Next, it is recommended to add the Atmocube to the admin panel at atmocube.app by entering the Device ID, which can be found on the back of the device.

Check connectivity

If the Wi-Fi connection is successfully established, the power and Wi-Fi indicators will change from blinking green to solid green.

If the Wi-Fi connection is not established or if there is another connection problem, the Wi-Fi indicator will change to a solid red color.

Check that the Atmocube is trying to connect to a 2.4 GHz network and that device is within the WiFi network coverage.

If the Atmocube is connected to Wi-Fi but cannot connect to the cloud server, the Wi-Fi indicator will flash red.

In this case, check the firewall settings. Atmocube requires access to the following MQTT servers:

mqtt.atmotech.co, port 8883ota.atmotech.co, port 443
0.pool.ntp.org,1.pool.ntp.org,2.pool.ntp.org,3.pool.ntp.org, port 123

Resetting the Wi-Fi settings

To reset the Wi-Fi settings, press and hold the Main button for 20 seconds.
Within 10 seconds, all indicators will turn orange.

Continue holding the Main button until the indicators start flashing orange and then release the button. The Atmocube will then be reset and able to receive the Wi-Fi settings via Bluetooth.

Note: Via the USB configuration tool, the Atmocube can be configured so that it cannot be reset with the Main button.
