The process outlined in this video is no longer available. Resideo chose to remove this capability from Total Connect 2.0.
In this video, Darrell from Alarm Grid shows you how to connect an LTEM-PA or LTEM-PV communicator from Resideo to your WIFI network when you have a cellular connection enabled on the device. The reason the process is different when you have cellular, as opposed to when you don't, is that having cellular allows you to turn on Bluetooth in the communicator remotely. Without cellular, you will have to physically remove the cover and press the test button to enable the LTEM-P Series device for a Bluetooth connection.

Setting up the communicator's WIFI network is done through the Total Connect 2.0 app. Be sure your iOS device has Bluetooth turned on before you begin. Open the TC2 app, and log in using your credentials. In this video, we show you how to connect using an iOS device. If you need to see this process using an Android device, check for a link to that video at the bottom of this description.

Once you have logged into TC2, tap the More (...) icon at the lower right, then tap on Settings and tap Change Device WIFI Network. On the next screen, you are asked "Can you access and open the security device?" Since your communicator has a cellular connection, you can choose No. This tells Total Connect 2.0 to remotely send the command to start Bluetooth pairing on the communicator. If you can see the communicator, LEDs 1, 3, and 5 will begin flashing in sync. This indicates the communicator is in Bluetooth pairing mode. Remember, it will stay in this mode for 10 minutes, regardless of how long it takes you to complete the WIFI setup process.

A message will pop up in the app letting you know that Bluetooth at the communicator is being enabled. Then the screen will automatically advance and let you know that the security device's Bluetooth is on. Click Next. This is the screen where you will allow your phone to connect to the communicator via Bluetooth. Once your LTEM-P Series communicator shows up as a device you can connect to, select it. You'll know it's your security device because it will show the model number and the communicator's MAC address.

Select your communicator and then a message will pop up letting you know that your phone is connecting to your communicator. On iOS devices, you'll be prompted to allow your phone to pair with this device. Select "Pair". Once paired, the screen will automatically advance and a list of available WIFI networks will be returned. Select your network from the list, then click "Next". Enter your WIFI password. Remember, this is a case-sensitive password. Click "Next". Once the communicator connects successfully, you'll receive a message in the app "Successful WIFI Setup". Click "Done". Your communicator is now connected successfully to your WIFI network. If you're finished with Total Connect 2.0, you can select the "Back" option at the top of the screen and back out of the Settings menu, and exit the app.


[AUDIO LOGO] Hello, DIY-ers. This is Darrell with Alarm Grid. Today, we're going to tell you how to connect the LTEM-P series communicators to Wi-Fi when it has cellular communications. To start off, we're going to verify that the Wi-Fi module is installed in your unit. To open the unit, we're going to press the two tabs at the bottom, opening up the case. And we're going to verify that the Wi-Fi module is installed in the top left of the LTEM communicator which is here. If you do not have this module, you may need to purchase the module and install it using another video we have. We're using the android app to connect to the LTEM-P communicator. We're going to press Total Connect 2.0, the icon on here. From there, we're going to press the three-line menu. We're going to go to Settings. We're going to see the Change Device Wi-Fi Network. We're going to tap that. It's going to ask if you have access to the LTEM-P communicator. For this one, we're going to answer yes to turn the Bluetooth on manually. We're going to go to your LTEM-P. We're going to find the red test button. We're going to press and hold that for three seconds and release. That will start the Bluetooth pairing mode where LEDs one, three, and five will all blink at the same time. And then we'll hit Next on our mobile device. And make sure your Bluetooth is turned on on your phone. Once you verify that the Bluetooth is turned on, go to next. It should find your LTEM-P communicator. Verify the last three of the Mac address match just to be safe that you've got the right one and that somebody else is not trying to do the same thing somewhere near you. We will tap the LTEM-P from the list. It'll fetch the Wi-Fi list of all the available networks near you. Once you see your list of Wi-Fi networks, select the one that you will be using to connect to the Wi-Fi, then press Next. Enter your password for your Wi-Fi network. Once you've entered your Wi-Fi network password, press Next. And you have successfully set up the Wi-Fi network. Hit done. And then check with your technician to make sure the Wi-Fi network is working properly. This ends the android app setup. Don't forget, once you've connected your Wi-Fi, to close your LTEM-P communicator. And now that you have the Wi-Fi set up, and that's how you connect your LTEM-P to Wi-Fi when it has cellular communications.
