THE SEARCH AND ASSOCIATION OF NEW BEES

The Microbees system has been designed with security in mind. For this reason, the messages that are exchanged between its components are encrypted. To achieve the highest level of safety, devices must run a setup phase (only upon first use) in which information is exchanged for the recognition and encryption. The functionality of “search and association of new bees” allows you to configure new hardware installed.

Please note: Before you start the process you must set the bees to associate in “Programming”. All bees that are not yet configured are positioned automatically in this mode (highlighted by the flashing of all 4 LEDs on the device).

You can set a BEE Programming Mode by pressing and holding the button located under the bee symbol for 10 seconds

The procedure is completely automatic. Simply run the automatic search, wait for the system and configure individual devices. Once all the new bees are configured it is necessary to simply terminate the process and wait for the new Bees to be recognised in the Cloud and visible the app.
