The Link is the key element of Home Alarm. Any Home Alarm installation necessarily begins with the installation of the Link. It can only be installed via the “Somfy Protect” mobile app.

Advice on positioning:
The Link must be positioned in a location boasting optimum communication with the WiFi and all the peripherals installed.
It must be connected to a wall socket; avoid connecting it to gang sockets
It must be positioned close to the entrance to allow automatic deactivation when a badge enters the front door
It must be more or less central to communicate with all other equipment (IntelliTAG, siren, motion detector)
It communicates by WiFi; it must be a reasonable distance from the Internet box (or WiFi router)
It must not be positioned in a corner of the house where communication will be difficult with all other elements

Installation procedure via the app:
After having created your personal account and the system account, you can install the Link by following the instructions on the app screen.
1. First, the socket corresponding to your country should be clipped to the Link.
2. Connect the Link and check that the LED comes on. If not, check that the socket corresponding to your country is correctly clipped to the Link.
3. The smartphone looks for the Link in order to connect to it.
4. The app suggests using the WiFi network to which the smartphone is connected in order to transfer the information to the Link (network name and password). It is possible to select a different WiFi network if necessary.<
5. The following step shows that the smartphone has sent the information from the WiFi network to the Link and that the latter is now connected to the WiFi.
6. The Link then updates and configures itself. This step may take several minutes.
7. The installation has been successfully completed: the Link has been configured, is up-to-date and ready for use.

Your Link is now installed and you can install the other appliances by continuing to follow the instructions on the screen.
