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 connected to a stable 2.4GHz (802.11b/g/n, iPv4) WiFi network instead of a 5GHz one. Currently, the iPv6 network and Wi-Fi 6 router are not supported.
4. 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.
5. 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.


6. 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.


7. If the Hub Mini is fine connecting to a Personal Hotspot, then the problem may be in the settings of your WiFi router.
