    IMPORTANT:
    • Please note that you must connect to the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network or the pairing will fail.
    • Most modern routers will have both 5GHz and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks. It is highly recommended to have different Wi-Fi names for both networks so that you can accurately choose the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network name. Please consult your router manual on how to give different Wi-Fi names.
    • If your router auto combines the 5GHz and 2,4GHz Wi-Fi networks together as a single Wi-Fi name, you may not be to pair successfully.
    • This is a limitation of today’s Wi-Fi technologies with TUYA SMART and not a limitation of our smoke detector.
  11. Check the checkbox and click Next at this screen to start pairing.

How To Test Wifi Interconnected Smoke Detector?

If you had purchased interconnected smoke detectors, we would have pre-paired them into cluster(s) according to your preference prior to delivery.

On receipt of your order, you only need to pair your wifi interconnected smoke detector(s) to Tuya Smart app on your mobile. Here’s a guide for you.

To test your wifi interconnected smoke detector, hard press & release the multi function button at the wifi base. Do not press & hold the multi function button for too long as it will trigger a pairing reset (in which case, you will need to re-pair all the interconnected smoke detectors yourself).
