If you have an iPad please download the new Free 'Dianemo SmartHome' App in the iOS App store. To configure the App launch it and then touch the 'ToolKit' icon in the top right corner of the iPad's display. You will now be in the Settings screen. Set the 'Allow use of mobile data' setting to on/off as required, select the 'Connection type' - Local when accessing your system from its LAN side Wifi network or Remote if accessing your system when away from home. Next touch 'Connection' and then the '+' button in the top right of the 'Connections' screen and then touch the 'i' icon next to your next connection. Each 'Connection' allows you to connect to a different Dianemo installation.
