How to Reconnect My Shark Robot to WiFi
If you own a Shark Robot vacuum cleaner, connecting it to your home’s WiFi network can enhance its usability and convenience. Being able to control and monitor your robot vacuum remotely using your smartphone or voice assistant brings a new level of convenience to your cleaning routine. In this article, we will guide you through the process of reconnecting your Shark Robot to WiFi, ensuring you can optimize its functionality to make your life easier.
Step 1: Prepare Your Shark Robot
Before attempting to reconnect your Shark Robot to WiFi, it’s essential to ensure that your vacuum cleaner is ready for the process. Begin by checking if your robot vacuum is turned on and fully charged. Having a sufficient battery level will prevent any interruptions during the reconnection process.
Next, locate the WiFi indicator light on your Shark Robot. Most models have a WiFi icon or a network indicator light on the top or front panel of the device. Ensure the light is active and blinking, indicating that the vacuum cleaner is ready to establish a WiFi connection.
Step 2: Reset Your Shark Robot’s WiFi Settings
If you’ve recently changed your home’s WiFi network name (SSID) or password, it’s necessary to reset your Shark Robot’s WiFi settings to reconnect to the updated network. Follow the steps below to perform a factory reset on your Shark Robot:
- Locate the “Reset” button on your Shark Robot. It is usually positioned on the bottom or back of the device.
- Using a small pointed object (such as a paperclip), press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds.
- Release the reset button when you see the WiFi indicator light start to flash rapidly.
By resetting your Shark Robot’s WiFi settings, you’ve prepared it for the reconnection process.
Step 3: Connect Your Phone to the Shark Robot’s WiFi
To reconnect your Shark Robot to WiFi, you need to connect your smartphone or tablet to the vacuum cleaner’s WiFi network. Follow these steps to achieve a successful connection:
- Open the settings on your phone and navigate to the WiFi settings page.
- Look for the WiFi network named “Shark_XXXX” (the “X” corresponds to your specific model’s identification).
- Tap on the Shark Robot’s WiFi network to connect.
- Once connected, return to the home screen or the app used to control your Shark Robot.
Your phone is now connected to your Shark Robot’s WiFi network, allowing you to proceed with the reconnection process.
Step 4: Reconnect Your Shark Robot to WiFi
Now that your phone is successfully connected to your Shark Robot’s WiFi, it’s time to reconnect your vacuum cleaner to your home’s WiFi network:
- Launch the Shark cleaning app on your phone. If you haven’t downloaded the app, visit the app store and download it from there.
- Go to the app’s settings and select the “WiFi Setup” or “Reconnect WiFi” option.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to input your home’s WiFi network name (SSID) and password.
Ensure that you enter the correct network credentials to establish a successful connection between your Shark Robot and your home’s WiFi network.
Step 5: Verify the WiFi Connection
After entering your home’s WiFi network credentials, the Shark Robot will attempt to establish a connection. The WiFi indicator light on your vacuum cleaner will initially flash rapidly, indicating a connection attempt. After a few moments, the light should turn solid, indicating a successful connection to your WiFi network.
To confirm the connection, open the Shark cleaning app on your phone and check if your vacuum cleaner appears as connected. Once connected, you can control and view the status of your Shark Robot remotely.
Reconnecting your Shark Robot vacuum cleaner to your home’s WiFi network allows you to streamline your cleaning routine through remote control and monitoring. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily reconnect your Shark Robot and enjoy the benefits of controlling your cleaning assistant with just a few taps on your phone or voice commands to your smart home devices.
