Using air-Q on the move / without a router: How the direct connection with the air-Q works.

If there is no known WLAN in the vicinity, the air-Q itself creates a WLAN hotspot (name “air-Q – Device abcde (abcde)“, where “abcde” stands for the first digits of your serial number).

Navigate to the Wi-Fi settings of your smartphone and search for the “air-Q – Device xxxxx” and connect to it using the password you assigned for the air-Q. The default password on delivery is “airqsetup”.

If you are connected, open the air-Q app, which will then either open a pop-up window for automatic detection or you can use the manual method here: Dashboard->connect air-Q->Available air-Qs. The air-Q is then displayed here under “Local devices (mDNS)”. Dashboard->air-Q verbinden->Verfügbare air-Qs. Hier wird der air-Q dann unter “Lokale Geräte (mDNS)” angezeigt.

You can now view all the data and make settings, e.g. for the Wi-Fi. If the air-Q comes into the vicinity of a known WLAN again, the device automatically connects to the set WLAN without restarting. The air-Q hotspot is then deactivated and a direct connection is no longer possible.

Some smartphones may have problems if they try to use the mobile data via the cellular connection during the connection. In this case, simply deactivate the “mobile data” temporarily.

Note: If you want to access data as quickly as possible via https://my.air-q.com, we recommend using the mobile hotspot of the smartphone for this purpose: Use air-Q on the move: Connect to the hotspot of the smartphone.
