The Yardian Installation
Download the Yardian App
After you have successfully connected your Yardian, let’s set up the Yardian App on your mobile device.
To set up the Yardian App on your mobile device, first download “Yardian” on either Apple App Store or Google Play. Open the app, then follow the instructions on the screen to create an account and sign in.
From there, click on “Add New Profile” to specify the Yardian you are using. Give it a nickname in the “Profile Name” section. Help us locate your Yardian using the Map that is provided in the app or by simply entering your zip code.
Next, you will be guided via pop-up windows to answer three more questions: the city you live in, the water provider of your city, and any address rules required by the water provider (e.g., odd or even address numbers). This way, Yardian can also help check for any water restriction rules currently going on in the city/town you live in.
Pair Yardian to your profile
After you have finished Step 3, the Yardian App will lead you to the Home tab of your Profile. Click on the red icon on the top left corner (Yardian Device Setting) to pair your Yardian device to your Profile by entering the 8-digit YID (Yardian ID).
Now for the most important part to make your Yardian smarter than your old controller – getting your Yardian online via Wi-Fi onboarding.
First, make sure your mobile device is near the Yardian and connected to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network. Then, check if the Yardian LED light is alternating blinking green and blue, meaning that it is ready for Wi-Fi onboarding. If not, press the reboot button and try again.
For Android users, please follow the steps below:
- Select the Yardian Device Setting card and go to “Wi-Fi Onboarding”.
- Select the Yardian SSID and click on the “Next” button.
- During the next step, you will need to specify your home Wi-Fi router SSID and password.
- Check your Yaridan LED. If it turns into a steady green light, it means that you have successfully connected your Yardian to your Wi-Fi network.
For iOS users, it is necessary to use the Apple Home App to complete Wi-Fi onboarding. Please check: How to Use the Apple Home App to Control Yardian Pro.
