Why does Wiser Air thermostat United States and Canada model require a secure Wi-Fi connection?
Wiser Air will not connect to a Wi-Fi network that is not protected by a password. When setting up a Wiser Air thermostat, it will detect Wi-Fi networks and ask the user to input Wi-Fi password. If one tries to skip the password entry, Wiser Air will report an error message that the password is an invalid length.Product Line:
