This page briefly describes the minimum steps needed to set up your new Puri Nixie Clock.

Using the clock connected to the internet

  1. Select how to control the clock
    There are three options for how to control the clock – iOS app that can run on any iPhone or iPad, Android app, and finally browser app that runs in any browser.
  2. Log in
    First, register with your email address, login, and continue to the connection process of your clock. We respect your privacy – your email address is used only for sending a link to reset the password if you ask for it.
  3. Connect the clock to your wifi network
    The clock needs to know the wifi credentials so that it can connect to your wifi router. So first, the clock needs to be switched to listening mode (unplug the adapter during the startup sequence, then plug it back in). Next, you connect to it over wifi with the app, scan for your wifi network, enter the password for the wifi and confirm the connection. The clock will now connect to the internet and will be assigned to your account.
  4. Configure the clock
    Once the clock knows the wifi credentials, you can see it in the app and access its configuration parameters. You are done!

Using the clock offline, independent of the internet

  1. Select how to control the clock
    There are two options for controlling the clock – iOS app that can run on any iPhone or iPad, Android app. Unfortunately, the Configuration website doesn’t support Direct connect yet.
  2. Connect to your clock directly over wifi
    First, the clock needs to be switched to listening mode (unplug the adapter during the startup sequence, then plug it back). Next, you connect to it over wifi with the app, and select Direct connect option.
  3. Configure the clock
    The communication is now done directly from your device to the clock without needing an internet connection. Set all configuration parameters as you wish, and you are done!
  4. Synchronize the time manually
    From time to time, you will need to synchronize the time manually from the app using Direct Connect.
