With a 1Home Box device you can prepare every project for your client without the need for an on-site visit. 

In only a few steps you can prepare a 1Home Box device, which you can then send to your client. The only thing the client has to do, is to plug the device into power and network.
 

Prepare a 1Home Box device

In the first step you will need to set-up the 1Home Box on a Raspberry Pi 3. 


 

Tag a 1Home Box to be managed by you

By tagging a 1Home Box device, you will be able to configure it remotely. As soon as the clients plugs the device into power and network, it will show up in your 1Home Projects tab.

  1. Go to the Projects tab in 1Home Dashboard: https://my.1home.io/projects

2. Click on the “Add project” button


3. Add the Description of the project and select a 1Home Box device prepared for this project.

4. If the client plans to use Voice control or Remote access please enter the email used by the client for Amazon Alexa or Google Home. If not, leave the field empty. You can add the email later.
5. Press Save and the 1Home Box device is tagged with your installer ID. You can now ship the device to your client. As soon as the device is plugged in to power and network it will pop up in the Projects dashboard.
 
  

Prepare a new client project to test voice control

The 1Home Dashboard, specifically the Projects tab allows you to configure and manage your clients. There you can prepare the project: configure the client’s gateway, modify, rename, enable/disable their devices and check their logs for potential issues.

  1. Go to the Projects page in 1Home Installer Dashboard.

2. Click on the “Add project” button
3. Add the Description of the project and enter the email used by the client for Amazon Alexa or Google Home. You can also modify the email later.
4. By clicking the button “Edit projects” and clicking on a project, you can modify it’s information: E-mail, change the 1Home Box device or description. Click “Done” when you’re finished.

5. Press "Save and the project is created.

6. Click on the project to set up gateway connection

7. Once the gateway is set up correctly notify the client to pair the 1Home skill on Amazon Alexa or 1Home action on Google Home. They should use the same Amazon or Google account configured by the project. You can also send the client instructions on how to connect Amazon Alexa, Google Home or Apple HomeKit/Siri.
