Homey pro 2023 setup - wifi


I am trying to install my Homey 2023 to replace my Homey 2019. The setup of the homey app requires my phone to connect to homey-setup-xxxxxx (I assume this to be a wifi signal from the homey as the Homey app switches to the phone’s wifi settings). The phone does not see this network (neither does my ipad). I used the reset button of the homey several times.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to fix this?


Compared to the previous generation Homey Pro, the Wi-Fi set-up is different. Homey Pro does not broadcast a Wi-Fi network (HomeySetup-XXXXXX) anymore, but the connection is made using Bluetooth.

Did you install the new app?

The homey 2023 comes with a quick quide which has a QR code that opens the app which my Homey 2019 also used…… silly me to think that that would work :crazy_face:

I have the same issue … resets don’t work, I have the feeling that either the homey pro 2023 is bad (RMA?) or that the app that is able to set this up is still in app store limbo.

Yeah, this is the issue, currently on app 6.11 and it specifically says: Install the iOS / Android app on your phone or tablet. Ensure the app’s version is at least v7 or higher.

The solution which was mentioned by Bas works. You just need to ignore the quick guide (which I guess is Athom’s way of keeping the forum busy)

@kris.hofmans Please install the beta app, as mentioned on the Early Access page:
