  • Applicable products: SwitchBot Hub Mini
  • SwitchBot app version: 6.20.1 or newer
  • Device firmware version: 3.7-2.4 or newer

1. Make sure your SwitchBot app version is up to date.

2. Make sure your Hub Mini has been added to SwitchBot app, and its firmware version is up to date.

Note: Follow these steps to check the firmware version:  Open SwitchBot App > Tap device name > Setting button (upper right of screen) > Tap Firmware Version.

3. Make sure the Hub Mini is powered on, and the USB adapter is 5V1A or 5V2A. Please note that if the power input is not enough, Hub Mini might lose connection with the WiFi router when you control by scene.
4. Make sure the Hub Mini is connected to a stable 2.4GHz (802.11b/g/n, iPv4) network instead of a 5GHz one. Currently, the iPv6 network and Wi-Fi 6 router are not supported for the Hub Mini.
5. If possible, try to set up the Hub Mini within a clear line of sight of your WiFi router. Building materials and metal objects located between the WiFi router and the Hub Mini or between the Hub Mini and your mobile phones may distract the connectivity.
6. You can check the WiFi connectivity status of Hub Mini in the "Home" tab of the SwitchBot App, as shown below.
7. In many cases, it helps to fix the connection issue by unplugging the power cable of the Hub Mini for 10 seconds and then plugging it back in.
8. If it doesn't work, It is recommended to perform a test by connecting the Hub Mini to a Personal Hotspot from another mobile phone. Pay attention to the following points:
  • Turn on Personal Hotspot from another mobile phone.
  • If possible, turn off the Wi-Fi router to exclude disturbances during the test.
  • For iPhone 12 or newer devices, enable Maximize Compatibility to ensure the personal hotspot is a 2.4GHz network.



9. After the personal hotspot is enabled, follow the steps to proceed your test.

  1. Tap the Hub Mini on SwitchBot App.
  2. Tap the gear icon ⚙️ on the top right corner.
  3. Tap Wi-Fi Settings.
  4. Tap Edit, enter the new name & password of personal hotspot on your mobile phone.



10. If the Hub Mini is fine connecting to a personal hotspot, then the problem may be located in the WiFi router settings. Please contact the support team if needed.
