Section 1: Controlling the Built-in Light

Part 1: Applying Power

  2. Use the switch to turn on the power.

If you want to use a customer light fixture, refer to Section 2. Before installing a customer light fixture, validate everything is working by going through Section 1.

Part 2: Connect to the SimplySNAP Site Controller

When you select the SSID and your computer attempts to connect to the site controller, it will prompt you for a password to complete the connection.

Each site controller broadcasts a Wi-Fi SSID that will be visible from the network connections panel of your computer or tablet.
It will appear in your device's network connections list as SimplySNAP_XXXXXX where XXXXXX is the specific address of the site controller. This address is unique to each site controller and matches the last 6 alphanumeric characters of the Ethernet MAC address. The site controller has randomized passwords for Wi-Fi and the default user, and both are available on a sticker on the side of the site controller. The SSID will be visible from the network connections panel of your computer or tablet, and can be selected like any wireless network.

When you select the SSID and your computer attempts to connect to the site controller, it will prompt you for a password to complete the connection.

Enter the default Wi-Fi password (labeled "WiFi Password) provided on the sticker to establish the connection.

When this password is entered a connection is established and will appear in your network settings. This may also appear as an “Unidentified network” with no internet access.

Part 3: Log into SimplySNAP

  1. Once the connection is made open a Google Chrome browser and type the following in the address bar: 192.168.55.1.

Internet Explorer is not supported.

  1. You may receive a warning message about the connection not being private. If so, click the “Advanced” link and then click “Proceed to 192.168.55.1 (unsafe)” to continue to the SimplySNAP user interface.
  2. The default user name for SimplySNAP is: snap and the password is labeled User on the sticker on the side of the unit.

  1. You should now be logged into SimplySNAP. You should have landed on the “Devices & Zones” page. (If not, go ahead and click the Devices & Zones link on the left-hand side of the screen.) Go ahead and click the ON/OFF button to toggle the light state or use the slider to dim the light.
