Can I set up SmartHQ Management myself?
Expand Button-SmartHQ Pro FAQ

Yes, SmartHQ Management is easy to set up on your own. All you need to do is create your SmartHQ Management account, download the SmartHQ Management commissioning app, and connect your appliances. If you would prefer GE Appliances do the set-up, you can ask about our pro install services when signing up for your account.

Do I need to have site-wide Wi-Fi?
Expand Button-SmartHQ Pro FAQ

It is preferred that you have site-wide Wi-Fi that the appliances can connect to. Tenant Wi-Fi networks can be unpredictable, and we would need to know their SSID and passwords. If those passwords have changed or if the tenant changed providers, we may lose connection to those appliances as well.
