  7. If necessary, sign in to your Samsung account again.

  8. Touch Robot vacuum.

  9. To set up your POWERbot, press and hold Clock on the remote control until AP appears on the POWERbot, and then touch Next on your mobile device.

    Your mobile device and POWERbot must be connected to a Wi-Fi network. The POWERbot is only compatible with 2.4GHz networks which have a password. If the network does not have a password, it is not compatible with the vacuum.

  10. Once you reach the Connecting to your device screen, stop and do not touch Next yet. We will return here in step 14.

  11. Press the Home button on the iOS device to return to the Home screen, and then open Settings.

  12. Touch Wi-Fi, and then touch [Robot Vacuum] Samsung.

  13. (First Time Only): Enter the password for the [Robot Vacuum] Samsung network. The password is 1111122222

    If this password has been previously entered, the iOS device may remember it and not require it again. A check will appear next to [Robot Vacuum] Samsung once it is connected, and it will be shown at the top of the list.

  14. Once connected to [Robot Vacuum] Samsung, return to the Smart Home app. Once the app is open, touch Next.

  15. When the mobile device connects to the vacuum, a confirmation screen will display. Touch Next to continue.

  16. Enter the network name and personal password of the home network that the vacuum will be connecting to. This will vary based on the network settings of the home. Touch Next.

    When inputting the password, make sure it is the one for the home network, not the 1111122222 password used in step 13.

  17. The iOS device sends the name and password of the home network (entered in step 16) directly to the vacuum.

    When this step is complete, the [Robot Vacuum] Samsung network will automatically disappear and the iOS device will disconnect from that network as it is no longer available to connect to. This is intentional.

  18. Since the [Robot Vacuum] Samsung network automatically disappeared, the iOS device will automatically reconnect to a nearby network. If this is the same as the network that was sent to the vacuum, the Smart Home app will automatically continue to the next step.

    If the app does not automatically continue, run the Settings app on the iOS device again, go to Wi-Fi settings, connect the iOS device to the same home network that was just identified in step 16, and then return to the Smart Home app and touch Next.

  19. Please wait while the Smart Home App is connecting with the server.

  20. The Smart Home App is now connected to your vacuum. Touch DONE to continue.

  21. If other Samsung accounts have connected to your vacuum, a notification will appear. You may choose to View members now or Skip. For this example, touch Skip.

  22. Your vacuum is now connected to the Smart Home App, allowing you to monitor and control your vacuum.
