Domotz Pro can be installed on Fingbox hardware

Additionally to the existing Domotz hardware options, Domotz Pro can now be installed on any Fingbox device. Below are the steps that you must perform in order to activate a new Domotz Agent on this new supported hardware.

Step 1 

Ask your customer to activate their Fingbox with their own Fing account credential.

In order to make the first connection of Fingbox, it needs to be connected directly to the router. If you have multiple devices plugged into the router, then you can use a switch and free one of the ports for Fingbox by connecting those devices to a switch which connects back to the router. 

To assist with setting up your Fingbox set up, please follow the steps below. 

Finding your Fingbox 

  1. Power up yourFingbox
  2. Wait for the GREEN top circle (NOT the green LED on the ethernet port)
  3. Connect your phone to theWiFinetwork your Fingbox is connected to 
  4. Launch theFingapp and run a scan 
  5. Wait for theFingboxactivation popup 

Log-in to your account: 

Make sure you are signed in to your Fing account. You can check this from the second tab: NETWORK. If not, you may create a new account from that tab, and try to discover again the network to enable the Fingbox. Just click “Get A Fing Account” from the NETWORK tab. 

Once the Fingbox is installed on Fing App, you can verify it by going into settings and see the name of the Fingbox or if you see three tabs on bottom: ‘Devices’, ‘Network’, & ‘People’. 

 

Step 2 

Once ready, ask them to install Domotz Pro on their Fingbox, following these instructions on the Fing App:

  1. Choose the Fingbox Network from header dropdown list 
  2. Tap on the Network summary row in order to access the full details page 
  3. At bottom, tap on “Install” in the “Install a Domotz Pro Agent” section 
  4. When prompted to insert a Domotz Pro account, your Domotz Pro account email should be used 

Your customer tasks are concluded, you will now be able to manage the new Agent activation on the Domotz Portal. The Domotz Pro Agent is being installed on the Fingbox, and you will soon be able to activate it. The installation process may take up to 10 minutes. 

Please note that your customer will have no visibility or access to any of the Domotz Pro features. They will continue to use the Fing App to manage and use their Fingbox. The Domotz Installation they have just performed, will just allow them to access external support from you. 

 

Step 3
Access Domotz Portal with your credentials. You will see a pending “Fingbox Support“ request at top of your Agents list. You still need to wait for the installation process to be concluded before proceeding.

 

Step 4 

Once the Agent is fully installed on the Fingbox (about 10 minutes), pressing Activate button you will be able to activate it like a classic Agent, selecting the desired plan and expiration.

Your new Domotz Agent running on the Fingbox is now active and ready to monitor your customer network. You will be able to manage and stop it anytime you want, just like you do with classic Domotz Agents. It will always be marked with a Fing icon next to it, to help you recognize it among other networks.
