How to setup GAS Alert to use your WiFi?

 

  1. Your Gas Alert needs to connect to the internet to send notifications. They will then be forwarded as emails and as text messages to your phone. To begin configuring your Gas Alert, you will need to know your WiFi network name and its password.


     

  2. Step 1Plug in the Gas Alert into a power outlet. Open your phone, go to Settings, and choose Wi-Fi.  Under the CHOOSE A NETWORK tab you will see available networks. One of them will be the Gas Alert. It will look like SASensor-000000 where "000000" is the unique device ID. In the example on the right it is shown as SASensor-2336877. It may take up to 30 seconds for the SAS network to become visible on your phone or a laptop.

     


     

  3. Step 2Select SASensor-000000. Once connection is established, which may take 10-15 seconds, it will open a browser window with WiFi Manager. Please note, in case you do not see the WiFi Manager page, you may need to open a browser window and type in an address: http://10.10.4.1.  The window will look like this:

    See Note 2 below if you are having problems with this step

     


     

  4. Step 3 When you select Configure WiFI, you should see the configuration window:

     

  5. Select your WiFi router and enter it’s password. Please note that some phones will CAPITALIZE the first letter. Make sure your password is entered correctly!

     

  6. Press Save, and return the phone to it’s old WiFI network. Make sure that you see "Credentials Saved" on your phone. Otherwise you may need to perform this configuration process again.


 

Note 1:  when your Gas Alert is configured with a new phone number, the first alert is used for validation. Send another alert after 5 minutes to receive your first text message as a test.

Note 2: if you can connect to the SAS network but do not see the WiFi Manager configuration menu, you may need to open a web page at http://10.10.4.1.  If that page does not open, disconnect from SAS network by going back to Settings and selecting your Home WiFi network. Wait for 5 seconds and re-connect to SAS network. Sometimes it helps to go back to Settings, then click on WiFi again to re-connect.

You may also need to go back to Settings, and connect to your Home WiFi in case you are unable to establish connection with SAS network. This will force your phone to drop the connection and establish a new one. Then connect to SAS network and proceed with WiFi configuration.
