RESETTING THE  WIFI CONNECTION FOR YOUR JELLYFISH CONTROLLER

If for some reason you seem to lose WIFI or change your router or your home WIFI setup in any way, and your JellyFish Controller needs to be reset as well, here are the basic steps to follow.

NOTE 1: Please note that the JellyFish Controller will only connect to wireless routers that are outputting a 2.4G  signal.  Many routers also include a 5G network and sometimes even a 6G network.  The JellyFish Controller will not connect to those.  Please ensure that a 2.4G signal is enabled for your router (most routers have this enabled by default)

NOTE 2: If you have a “mesh” network (aka… a main HUB router and then some satellite mesh routers routers throughout your home), then it is a good idea to temporarily unplug the satellite routers and only have the main “parent” mesh router active while setting up the WIFI.  Hopefully the controller can reach the parent router with a good signal.  The reason for unplugging the satellite routers is that sometimes if the JellyFish Controller gets set up to a satellite mesh router, it may have problems recognizing when someone is connected the parent router and trying to operate the controller. This is a common glitch with some mesh networks).
You can enable the satellite routers after the setup is successful.

STEPS TO RESET YOUR WIFI

STEP 1) Press and hold the MENU button on your controller for 3 seconds

STEP 2) Wait for the Menu to display (it defaults to the DATE display)

STEP 3) Press the down arrow until WIFI is displayed

STEP  4) Click OK and the click OK again when the display says RESET WIFI.  This will reset the WIFI settings back to factory default.

You have now successfully reset your JellyFish Controller WIFI back to the factory settings. (Not the rest of the controller… just the WIFI connectivity)

Now you need to reconnect your controller to your local WIFI system.

RECONNECTING YOUR CONTROLLER TO YOUR LOCAL WIFI NETWORK

STEP 1) Go to your smart device (phone, tablet, iPad, etc..) and go to Settings >> WIFI

STEP 2) Search the WIFI local network devices and you should now see a network there called something like JELLYFISH – XXXX.  Select that network.  When it asks for a password, type “bigfish10”.  That is the factory default password for the controller.  It will connect you to the controller.
NOTE:  Some smart devices may alert you that there is no internet connection on that network and ask you if you want to stay connected.  You must stay connected.

STEP 3)  After you have connected directly to the JELLYFISH–XXX network, go back and open the JELLYFISH DESIGNER APP.  Then go to SETUP>> WIFI SETUP.

STEP 4) You can ignore the instructions on the APP, as we have already done them in this tutorial.  Simply go to the bottom and click SEARCH FOR NETWORKS

STEP 5) When you see your network, click on it and then type in the password for that network in the field provided… and then click CONNECT.

STEP 6)  It will take 1-2 minutes for the Controller to successfully complete the connection to that network.    You will most likely see some alert at the end on you smart device that says that it cannot connect to the controller… and all you need to do is completely close the App and go back to the main home screen on your smart device.

BEFORE WE PROCEED, LET’S UNDERSTAND WHAT WE HAVE DONE.
We have simply connected the JELLYFISH Controller to your main home WIFI network.  It will acknowledge any commands that it gets from that network.  Essentially the Jellyfish Controller is now a part of your home WIFI network.

STEP 7) Now that the Jellyfish Controller is part of your home WIFI network, all you need to do is connect your smart device to your main home WIFI network and then open the JellyFish Designer App.  You should now be able to control your JellyFish Controller by simply  opening the App when you are connected to your home WIFI network.

That should do it!

As an emergency last resort, if for some reason you are connected to your local WIFI home network and the JellyFish App is unable to find that network, you can always CONNECT DIRECTLY TO THE JELLYFISH -XXX network  and control it that way.  However, instead of using “bigfish10” as the password (which is simply the factory default password) you now need to use your local home WIFI password.
