Our G-Homa app requires a system that either is iOS 7.0 or above, or Android 4.0 or above, and presently is not compatible with windows’ phones. Operating with a Web-Browser is also not possible.

- During socket configuration, no extra login page is required on browser.
- 2.4GHz and 5GHz are two different wireless radio frequencies. A router that has both frequencies is called dual-band router. If you have a dual-band router, please make sure your smart device is connected to 2.4GHz network for socket configuration. You can change your router radio frequency in Setting ->Wirless->Radio->Band, at router’s setting page.
It varies by routers. Usually, you will find the settings in Wireless->Radio->Band. Apple “Airport Routers” have a default frequency setting of 2.4GHz.
For security reasons, G-Homa is not compatible with the following Wi-Fi network:
- Enterprise network. Enterprise router security is set up with a series of firewalls that G-Homa does not support.
