Start by plugging in the Abode Iota or Gateway and connecting it to your modem with the provided Ethernet cable. Make sure the backup battery button is in the “on” position.
Next, download the Abode app on the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Create a new account and enter your device’s activation code when prompted.
The app will walk you through the rest of the setup process.
In the Abode app, tap Settings and then Gateway Internet Connection. Toggle the Wi-Fi Connection button and select your network. Enter the network password when prompted.
Note: only the Iota hub connects to Wi-Fi.
In the Abode app, tap Settings, then Integrations, and finally Apple HomeKit. Write down the pairing code that appears on the screen.
Navigate to the HomeKit app. Tap the plus sign in the upper right corner and select Add Accessory. Next, select “I don’t have a code or cannot scan.” Under the Manual Code heading, tap Enter Code.
Input the pairing code to finish connecting HomeKit to Abode.
