Getting Started

Before diving into the activation process, ensure your Nudge device is connected to power. You'll know it's ready when you see it cycling through various colors or glowing white—a sign it's waiting to connect.

Step 1: Open the Nudge App

First things first, open the Nudge app on your smartphone. If you haven't already, you'll need to create an account at this stage or choose to ‘Continue as Guest’ if you prefer not to register.

Step 2: Find Your Device

Step 3: Give Descriptive Name and Wifi Credentials

Now, it's time to personalize your Nudge experience. Name the Nudge device with a descriptive name to the medication, supplement, or vitamin you're tracking.

You'll have to enter Wi-Fi credentials at this point. Wifi SSID can be entered either by selecting from available networks or entering your details manually. 

Note: If you are connecting to an open network without a password, just leave it blank.
