Adding the APs to Social WiFi Panel

You need to find the Mac Addresses of all your Access Points and add them to the panel. Most of the time they're hidden, so you have to turn displaying it on. To do so, go to Devices and check the "Mac Address box".

As you can see the the Mac Address is now shown. If you have more than one Access Point - the other addresses will be visible too.

In order to add a device to Social WiFi platform:

  • Access your account in the Social WiFi Panel.

  • Choose the correct venue to which you would like to add the device.

  • In the “Access Points” tab, press “Add” (upper right corner), paste the MAC address you copied into the form (adding a name is optional) and click “Create”.
