How to pair Tedee devices with an app?

The last step before you start enjoying Tedee devices involves pairing them with the app. This move takes seconds but ensures the device is connected, secure – and only yours.

What does pairing mean?

You can think of it as an activation executed using the Tedee system.

Why do I need it?

One could imagine it would be enough to connect to the device via Bluetooth to set it up.

However, with the Tedee system operating on a cloud-based security mechanism, pairing devices means adding them to your account – not just your smartphone.

The user pairing the device with the app obtains the role of its owner.

Together with advanced authorization procedures, these enable the highest form of security.

When do I need to pair my device?

Before you start

It would be best if you started with a device that is off. The guide will ask you to turn your device on when adding it to the app.

This way, you can pair devices before installing them in their final position.

Where to find the Activation code?

The activation code is printed on the last page of the device’s instruction manual, included in the box.
