3. Select "Click to go to Wi-Fi Settings", this will take you to your phone's global Wi-Fi settings. 

4. You now need to connect to your Flood Sensor. Find your device in the Wi-Fi settings. Your devices SSID will follow the format: "Roost-device-XXXX". This may take a few seconds to appear, so please be patient. 

Once possible, select the device name to begin the connection.

6. A pop-up box will appear. Click "Yes" to complete the connection to the device.

7. Upon clicking "Yes", go back into the Hedge app and click "Next", as shown below.

8. Now select the home Wi-Fi network you would like to connect the device to by clicking from the drop-down highlighted below.  After selecting the Wi-Fi network, enter the Wi-Fi password and press "Connect".

12. Upon clicking Connect, the device will try and connect to the home Wi-Fi network. NOTE: The device will beep once if it's successfully connected. If you hear 4, or 6 beeps then please read the following articles.

13. Once the Flood Sensor is connected, you have the option to rename the device and then click Save. The name you give the sensor will appear in any Hedge app notifications we send you upon detection alerts. 

Next click on "Save device details". 

14. The app will restart and your new Flood Sensor status will now appear on the opening app screen below your SmartCam feed. As you can see below, we called our Flood Sensor: "Washing Machine"
