Hi, I’m setting up my beerdroid to wifi, I can only get to the second step as I can’t select my home network to move onto the next phase. Has anyone else had this issue? Or have any ideas of how I should go about this?  

Thanks!

it can be a little painful but is the wifi a distance away from the droid? That was my biggest problem when I started and I moved everything closer.

Of course, one day it dropped out and I just could not be arsed connecting it again...and it has made no difference to me. I understand it is cool to get updates about your brew but it isn't the make or break of the system, that is the fact that it brews it to the end of fermentation without hassles. I used to get updates and now I just go in on day 4 or 5 and see the temp has risen and think "not too long now".

I had heaps of issues getting mine going but until this last brew It hasnt skipped a beat . If i have issues tomorrow and let you know haha . Hopefully you get it going mate , it is good to see, but I agree with Rob its really a nice to have . Biggest thing i use it for is setting my brewprint. I dont get many notifications for it.

My issue was it would do a "ramping up the temperature" notification at 2am in the morinig and you are like "OMG nobody would send me a text at 3 am in the morning unless someone was dying"

Apparently, Brewart does, because you should care that your lager has moved to 14 degrees at 3 am

Don't get me wrong though, the Brewart system is an absolute winner, could not recommend it more. Telling me it has ramped the temp...yeah, I'll see it tomorrow thanks FF (last F is face)

Hi Christopher, Mark here.

Make sure wifi is turned on your pc, iPad and or phone for what you are going to use. You need to then select the home net work you want to use on the pc, iPad and or phone in the settings section. This will then tell the droid where to connect.

Hope this helps, let us know. Cheers

Yup a couple of times. And tried redoing the Manual setup with no luck . My phone would connect to the droid Wifi as per say , but when I would go to the next step on the app it says it cant connect lol . Oh well interested to see if this generic ale setup will work for the narci citrus lol

Just an update . Checked on my droid this morning , at 0043 it decided it wanted to pick up the wifi signal again lol. @Christopher Downie did you get your droid sorted ? 

Is the correct network still selected on your phone?

(sent pm to Christopher yesterday, no response as yet)

Yeah still my home network . The droid just had a moment it seems. I lost it 2 days from the end of the RIS last time then when I plugged it in yesterday could not get it connected at all. Oh well alls well that ends well . Just not sure how the ale print works against the fermentation temps for the Narci-Citrus , tried to look on my print but cant load it while I have a brew in lol

Afternoon all, 

 

I too am having issues connecting my Drooid to wifi. I can't even get to the second step.

I select Manual wifi on the Droid itself then try to join that network on my phone, but it's password protected? This is the first time I've turned it on.

 

Any suggestions would be gratefully received! 

 

Merry Christmas!

 

Will

Hi Will, Mark here and welcome. 
You will need the “net work key” (WPaz) for your net work. Now you may find this under or on the back of your modem. Let us know how you go. What network are you with?

Hi Mark, 

 

I figured it out going through the WPA method and manual registration. A little cumbersome but it worked.

 

Now just figuring out what to do next. Sanitization is probably a good guess. ;)

Glad your up and running. Yes sanitise, drain, rinse and brew.
