How to configure the Alert button?

You are holding the Alert Button in your hands. How do you configure it to use your WiFi router?

Your new Alert button needs to connect to the internet to send its alerts. They will then be forwarded as emails and as text messages to your phone. In order to do that it needs to know which WiFi network to use for communications. In addition, your Alert button must be configured with an email and phone number to send notifications. 

Please note: we recommend that configuration steps are completed in this order. Note also that some pages on this site are only available to registered owners. For example, you cannot Configure your device as directed in Step 3 until you have created your MySpool account and logged in, as directed in Step 2.

1. Setup your Alert button to use your WiFi. This procedure is described below.

2. Create your account. Be aware that your account is not created until you have received an email from us and confirmed it by clicking on the provided link.

3. Login and click Configure Device to enter email and phone number for notifications.

To begin configuring your button, you will need to know the WiFi network name and its password.
