Connect your NightWatch base station to your router via an Ethernet cable.

After a few minutes, two orange lights on your base station confirm that NightWatch is connected to the Portal. Make sure to keep NightWatch connected during the night.
How do I connect the Nightwatch base station to a router that is further away?
If your nearest access point is too far away for a cable connection, we recommend bridging the connection with a plug-and-play Powerline adapter, WiFi repeater, or Mobile Router.
With a powerline adapter, you create a network connection. There is no need to lay cables because a powerline adapter sends the internet signal via the mains. Use the wired LAN connection to connect the NightWatch base station.
A WiFi repeater is a device that receives an existing signal from a wireless router or wireless access point and rebroadcasts it. You will need a version with a wired LAN connection to connect your NightWatch base station.
You can equip a mobile router with a SIM card that connects to your mobile provider via 4G. Your NightWatch base station can then be connected to the internet via the mobile router which must have a wired LAN connection.
Find your unique number on the back of the Nightwatch base station.
You need the unique number of your NightWatch to access the Online Portal. Your unique number can be found on the white label on the back of your base station. Find the number that starts with MAC. Your unique number consists of the last 4 characters. So in the example above, the unique number is 02F2.
