Welcome to the BrewBuddy setup guide. Here we will guide you how to connect your Buddy. To join the BrewBuddy family and interact with other Buddy’s simply start by signing up and creating your profile at www.thebrewbuddy.com.
To start using the BrewBuddy App you will have to download it from either Google Play or Appstore. Another simple way is to scan the QR code for downloading. (The App is currently being processed and will be available soon)
Plug your power supply cable into the your wall socket and the power cord to the adapter. The fixed cable on the adapter is the DC power cable and this goes into the DC socket of the Buddy, as shown here.
Push the button, with the power-logo, on the left-hand side of the Buddy all the way in and release it. The button will
stay pressed and the power-logo will light up. The BrewBuddy logo at the front will start pulsating with a white color,
meaning that the Buddy is now ready to be paired.
If the power-logo is not lit then the button is either not fully compressed or there is no power to the Buddy. Please check that you have power to your wall socket and try again. If this still fails, then contact BrewBuddy for technical assistance.
Open the App and the first time use it will detect that there is no Buddy associated with your account and you will be prompted to connect a Buddy. Confirm with "Yes".
To be able to access the phones Wi-Fi functionality you need to grant the App access to the units location. BrewBuddy recommends selecting "ALLOW ALL THE TIME" functionality for best performance.
In this step you will tell the Buddy which Wi-Fi to connect to, through the App. If your mobile device is already connected to a Wi-Fi network, then your Wi-Fi name is prefilled in and you will only have to enter the password of the Wi-Fi that your device is connected to. If your phone is not already connected to a Wi-Fi, you will have to type in the network name and password manually. Once you are done, click "CONNECT".
In this last step the Buddy will now connect to your Wi-Fi and you will see that when connection is established that the
BrewBuddy logo will become steady orange. This means you are ready to enjoy your Buddy and start the fermentation.
If the Logo is not showing a steady orange light, then repeat Step 5 - 7. If you are still not connected after this then contact BrewBuddy for technical assistance.
