First of all login to your App
in Android go to Settings
then click on Customer Care
Right at the bottom you will see the “Connection Status”
this tells you how your Hub is connected at the moment…Either operating in a Local mode (no internet required) vs Cloud mode.
You can always turn off your wifi on your android (which will force you out of your network)…and try to turn a switch on or off… This way your App will be connecting via the cloud (because its not in the same network anymore) and if it can issue commands and they work, that means your hub is receiving instructions from internet.
Pls note: Even in local mode, its still listening to internet so that it can execute instructions coming from the cloud. So Local mode doesn’t mean it has no internet connection (just wanted to clarify)
Local mode means: To turn your light on, the instruction doesn’t have to travel via the internet…it can do it all locally (more efficient way of doing things…our architecture is, whatever we can do locally we do).
