How to install the SQUIDD Home?
If this is your first use, take the SQUIDD Home out of its box when it has just arrived at your home. Download the application quickly with the help of the instructions then create an account in it. First, you will have to add SQUIDD Home to the group created on your SQUIDDY application: Press "add a squidd" then press the orange button on the product for 2 seconds, then give it a name (you can also add a logo to the product by clicking on the photo pictogram). Then press "next", then "initialize", the product should flash green-red. If you receive an activation SMS, then your product is operational. Just put it in the place you want to protect (check that the door, window, or other is properly closed) then press "new position" after clicking on the product on the "all my squidds" page. After flashing the orange LED, you receive an SMS and it's good you are now protected.
If the initialization is not done? (red code on product, error message, etc.)
Sometimes the first initialization of the product is not done correctly, when you press "initialize", the product ends up flashing in red, you do not receive an SMS and you have an error message. First of all, you must try to repeat this manipulation outdoors (street, garden, balcony, etc.), but before pressing "initialize", do not hesitate to press the product button for 2 seconds to reactivate its Bluetooth. . If it doesn't work there, check your network coverage here: https://www.orange-business.com/fr/reseau-iot.

Secondly, you can stick the supplied magnet to the right of the product about 2-3cm, then press "new position" ("all my squidds" page then click on the product).

Cellar and garage
How can the system be connected underground?
Thanks to LoRaWan, SQUIDD Home remains connected up to level -2 on certain configurations. Most of the time, the one installed in your garage will need to be connected to a group with a maximum of 3 floors above.
How to install it without problems on a cellar?
If your garage is outdoors or at -1, try to initialize the product outdoors, then move it to the garage door. Check that the door is closed, then press "new position" on the product page accessible via "all my squidds" by clicking on the logo of the initialized product. If you receive an SMS then everything is working fine.
If you are at -2 or the product does not send you an SMS at -1 then you will need a second one. Install the first one on your apartment door or in your mailbox (3 floors of maximum differences), then install another in the same group but on your garage door. It should use the former as a relay to send you alerts.
How do I install it without 3G on my phone?
A special "basements" function is available on the application, you just have to follow the instructions during installation.
