How to Connect a WIFI Logger

Configuring A Logger's Wireless Network Settings

Touchscreen models (TWE, TWP) can be configured on a wireless network directly from the device itself.
1) Click the "Settings" icon. Navigate to the Network icon in the left sidebar (the "WiFi" logo)

2) If the device is currently displaying an ethernet configuration, click the button that indicates "Switch to WiFi"

3) You should now be able to select "Scan" to find the appropriate wireless network. Input the wireless network credentials (password) into the appropriate field, confirm, and the device should indicate it is connected.

4) When successfully configured, you will see a 6-digit code displayed on the same screen. This is the code used to add the logger to your account. See Adding a Device to Your Account.
