Can't I just use my phone/tablet as a WiFi Hotspot?

Yes! One can configure the GS-911wifi to connect to the Hotspot on your mobile phone, which means you can perform service functionality anywhere where there is mobile data coverage. Have a look at a video detailing the process or follow the steps below:

Configure your phone's Hotspot

    1. Navigate to your phone's Hotspot menu, and get the Hotspot name and password (including all apostrophes etc). On an iPhone the hotspot name can be found in the menu under General -> About -> Name. On iPhone 12 or later, you should turn on 'Maximize Compatibility' for Personal Hotspot to use a 2.4GHz connection.
    2. Write down or remember both the Hotspot name and password

    2. Ensure D2D mode is active. Press the red button to toggle from Infrastructure mode if required. The right-most LED should be ON (under the two WiFi symbols facing each other)
    3. On your phone, open the WiFi menu and search and connect to your GS-911WiFi's network in the list (the network name should be GS911_[last 4 or 5 digits of the serial number of GS-911WiFi], example GS911_7243

    6. Select Save at the bottom of the page as the phone Hotspot is not yet available to Connect to.

Activate the Hotspot and instruct the GS-911WiFi to connect

Bitte beachten Sie:
Der WiFi-Modultyp im GS-911 bestimmt die WiFi-Netzwerkkompatibilität gemäß den WiFi-Spezifikationen.

Die Funktionen des Cloud-Dienstes erfordern immer die neueste Version der Firmware. Ein Upgrade kann erforderlich sein.

Wenn das Mobilfunksignal des Telefons zu schwach ist, kann es sein, dass die Cloud-Funktionen zu spät oder gar nicht geladen werden.
