The smart-me system and its hardware always requires a direct internet connection to the cloud. Locally, you must therefore set up a WLAN 2.4GHz with an internet connection. 5Ghz is not supported because of the low range.
Internet access can be solved as follows:
Provider offer via cable from Swisscom, Sunrise or other local Internet provider and 2.4GHz WLAN router. (usually supplied by the provider)
Create Internet via mobile phone SIM card and 2.4GHz WLAN router.
Provide multiple access points with the same SSID and password. All smart-me products automatically select an access point with Internet connection.
Store multiple WiFi networks on the smart-me device: Can I use my device with multiple WiFi networks?
