If you cannot connect to your iKettle, we suggest trying a full reset. A couple of things to bear in mind before completing a full reset are that you must be connecting to a 2.4GHz router and the setup of the iKettle must be performed next to your router (it can then be moved after the set up).
To perform a full reset on the iKettle please follow them in the proceeding order:
1) Press and hold down the button on the base for 10 seconds until you hear three beeps.
2) Unplug the base, wait 10 seconds and then plug it back in.
3) Delete and re-install the app from your device.
4) Make sure your device is connected to your home network under settings and Wi-Fi. You will see an (i) in a small blue circle on the right hand side of your home network and a blue tick on the left. Click on this and then click on 'Forget This Network'. This will allow your device to make a new connection and you can then re-select your router and re-enter your password when prompted.
5) Turn your Wi-Fi off for a few seconds and then on again, to refresh the connection.
6) Open the iKettle app and follow the set up instructions.
This reset resolves the majority of issues. If you are still experiencing any problems after this, please contact us.

By entering your home network name and password you are giving permission for your router to allow the iKettle 2.0 to connect.
The Smarter app will fail any set up where an incorrect password has been entered. You will be shown an error message that allows you to start the set up process again.
