Overview

The Te Pari drench gun operates over it's own WiFi network and as it can't currently be configured to connect to other networks, the YardsTech® Scales will need to be configured to connect to the Te Pari drench gun's network.


Connecting to the drench gun's network

To configure the YardsTech® Scales to connect to the Te Pari drench gun's network, follow these instructions:

  1. Make sure your mobile device is on the same WiFi network as your YardsTech® Scales. 
  2. Open the YardsTech® App.
  3. The YardsTech® Scales device should show in the list within 15 to 20 seconds. If it does not then check that the YardsTech® Scales are turned on and that your mobile device is connected to the same WiFi network as the YardsTech® Scales
  4. Select the setup (gear) icon to the right of the device you want to set up.
  5. Select the Connectivity button.
  6. Under WiFi Connection Type, select "This device will connect to an existing WiFi network".
  7. Under WiFi Networks, enter the Te Pari network name into the Network Name field and the password (if required) into the Password field. The network name may be TePari or TEPARI00, however you can double check by turning on the drench gun and searching for the WiFi network on your mobile device. Enter the network name EXACTLY (including any capital letters) as it appears in the WiFi network search on your mobile device.
  8. Hit the Apply Changes button.
  9. Once the apply changes has been completed, restart the YardsTech® Scales.


Note that from now on the Te Pari drench gun MUST be switched on for the YardsTech® Scales to connect.



What if I'm not using the drench gun?

If you are using the YardsTech® Scales without the drench gun you can start the YardsTech® Scales in WiFi hotspot mode using these instructions - https://farmxl.freshdesk.com/a/solutions/articles/51000014301

This will allow you to easily switch between using the YardsTech® Scales with or without the drench gun, without needing to change configuration.
