Why does the APP keep showing 'Please bind to the same network of clock' when I scan the QR code??
You should connect time clock and your phone to the same Wi-Fi network. Turn on DHCP in device, and set the Configure IP option to Automatic in your phone Wi-Fi setup page. You can compare the IP address between your phone and time clock. The first three segments of the IP address must be same but the last segment should be different. For example, the IP address of your phone is 192.168.18.74, and the IP address of time clock is 192.168.18.210. If you have confirmed the previous content but the APP still keep showing that prompt, please restart your Wi-Fi router and try again. Because some routers would abnormally working after long-time running.
How can I enter letters and characters in the W1/W2/D1/D2?
