A prerequisite to setting up remote access is a 1Home Box device and at least one configured gateway for which you want to enable remote access. To do this please follow these instructions.
After 1Home Box device is set up a new tab named 'Remote Access' appears in the navigation bar. To enable Remote Access click on the toggle button next to the user you would like to set up Remote Access for.
'My access' configures access of the owner of the smart home while 'Installer access' configures access of the professional installer of your smart home.
When enabling a user for the first time the user is asked to enter a password used to protect the security certificates. You need to remember this password as 1Home does not store it and it's required whenever VPN certificate is imported to a new phone or computer. You can also reset the password by clicking on the 'Edit password' button. An email with certificates will be sent out automatically to the respective user. To send the certificates to a specific email click on the 'Send to' button and specify the email you would like to send the instructions and certificates to.

- Click "Install" in the upper right corner.
- Enter the password for the client certificate you entered when enabling Remote Access for this user.
- Again click "Install".
