5. The Tapo app will automatically attempt to discover your Tapo Hub.

7. Tap Join when prompted on the pop-up window, and pairing will begin.

Note: Make sure your phone/tablet is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Tapo hub.


8. When the network is connected and pairing is complete, give your Tapo hub a name, assign its location, and customize its icon so it can be easily identified.


9. Once setup is complete, check for the latest firmware and update for an optimal experience. Then, assign an update schedule for your hub.


10. Done! Your Tapo hub is ready for use. Now you can manage your Tapo hub via the Tapo app anytime, anywhere.
