NOTE: These instructions are only for the Gen2 rechargeable Seeed and AWS Enterprise buttons with a device serial number (DSN) that starts with "G030PM...". 

To use an iOS device such as an iPhone or iPad to setup your Airnoise button, first download the iOS app here:

The following steps guide you through using the AWS app to setup your button and connect it to your home's WiFi network. Use these steps any time you need to reconnect it, such as when your WiFi network name or password change. We suggest you read through all of the steps before you start, and then read each step again as you follow the guide.

NOTE: This process should only take 2-3 minutes. If at any point the 1-Click app hangs or otherwise doesn't seem to be advancing, please restart the setup. At no point does any of this require you to wait more than a minute for something to happen, do please don't stare at it for 20 minutes while the app claims to be doing something.

NOTE: The app uses Bluetooth to communicate with the button during setup. You may be asked to grant the 1-Click app permission to access your phone's Bluetooth, location, camera, and WiFi. All of these permissions are required for successful setup.

HELPFUL TIP: If the button's light stops flashing blue before you've got it connected, don't worry. Just press it again for 7 seconds to turn on the blue light and pick up where you left off.

Step-by-step instructions

1. Start the Amazon app. Click the WiFi setup icon in the top-right corner. NOTE: You do not need or want to create an AWS account to use this app.

2. Tap the blue "Configure Wi-Fi" button on the next screen.

3. Scan the button's DSN by tapping the "Scan" button at the bottom of the screen.

  • For Gen2 rechargeable Seeed buttons, the DSN and barcode are printed on the bottom of the device itself. The DSN can contain both capital letter O's and the numeral 0. They are a bit hard to tell apart so it may take a try or two.

  • For the AWS Enterprise button, the DSN is printed on the end of the box it came in. If you don't have the box, you can scan the small QR code on the back of the button or enter the DSN manually, which is also printed on the back of the button. It's printed in very small type so you may need to take a picture and zoom in to read it. NOTE: If you enter the DSN manually it will contain the number zero but not any capital letter O's.

4. Use your device's camera to scan the barcode. A blue line will appear in the viewfinder across the barcode and your device may buzz or beep when it reads the barcode. 

If you need more light tap the lightning bold icon on the top-right corner. Once you see "1 Device(s) Added" tap the blue "Stop Scanning" button.

Here's what you'll see scanning the Gen2 Seeed button:

And here's what scanning the Enterprise button's box looks like:

5. The next page shows you the DSN of the button that you scanned. Tap the blue "Configure" button to continue.

6. The next page directs you to press the button for at least 6 seconds and then release it to turn on the blue light. This enables the button's WiFi so the app can connect to it. Once the light is flashing blue the app will automatically connect to the button.

NOTE: The image of the button on the screenshot above is just an animation. The image represents both the Gen2 Seeed rechargeable button and the AWS Enterprise button. It does not indicate the actual status of your button or the success or failure of the setup process. Just ignore it.

7.  When the app connects to the button it will transition to the page below. Here you need to tap the small triangle in the "Wi-Fi Network" box to see the detected Wi-Fi networks. Select your home's Wi-Fi network from this list. Enter your Wi-Fi password in the Wi-Fi Password box and click the blue "Confirm" button. 

It should only take 30-60 seconds for the 1-Click app to connect to your button. If after a minute it still hasn't connected, as indicated by the app transitioning to the next page, please cancel the configuration by clicking the X in the top-right corner of the app. Please DO NOT wait more than a minute or two -- if it doesn't connect in that time, it's not going to connect in 20 minutes. Besides, the light on the button will stop flashing after about 90 second, so go ahead and quit the configuration.

NOTE: Your Wi-Fi network information can be saved so you can easily access it again if you need to reconnect this button or a new one. If you want to save it, do so when prompted.

NOTE: As of May 2020, the AWS 1-Click app has a bug that prevents using the "Saved Wi-Fi network" when configuring the Seeed Gen2 button. Please be sure to re-enter your Wi-Fi credentials manually the first time you setup a Gen2 button.

8.  The app may take a few seconds to configure the button with your Wi-Fi information. While it's doing that, you'll see the screen below with "Configuration: In progress" and once the button is configured, you'll see "Configuration: Succeeded". 

  • For the Gen2 button the Wi-Fi configuration LED will turn solid blue then go out.

  • On the Enterprise button, the button's light will turn solid green. 

NOTE: For the Gen2 rechargeable button, if the Wi-Fi password you enter is incorrect, the Wi-Fi status LED will continue to blink blue while the app screen may indicate "Configuration: Succeeded". This is a bug in the AWS 1-Click app -- please ignore the app's "succeeded" message, click the arrow in the top-left corner, and retry your password. 

You can click the "Finish" button to close this screen.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Keep an eye on the button's light -- you want to see it turn steady blue (rechargeable Seeed button) or green (AWS Enterprise button)! Also, the configuration should take no more than 15-20 seconds for the Gen2 button and 30-45 seconds for the AWS Enterprise button. 

ALSO IMPORTANT NOTE: The AWS 1-Click app sometimes won't properly indicate to you that the button wasn't properly configured. You MUST keep an eye on the light on the physical button. As described above, under certain failures, the AWS app will show "Succeeded" as shown above even though the button has not been properly configured.

9.  To truly test that your button is connected to your WiFi, assuming you saw the green light or even if you're not sure if you did or didn't, click it for about 2-3 seconds and release it. 

This will send a signal to Airnoise, and in return the system will immediately send an email to the address you signed-up with letting you know your button is working. You can test your button anytime by doing this. If you receive that email, your button is good to go! Now get clicking!
