To connect to your Shelly Button 1, connect your device to the Wi-Fi network with a name(SSID) like shellybutton - 84CCA87D7CDC. Use the universal IP address for all Shelly devices - 192.168.33.1 to access your device's Web Interface, where you can set a Wi-fi network for the Shelly Button 1 to connect to. Once done, through the app on your mobile device or through home.shelly.cloud, you can go into the Settings and search for Device information. There you will find the Device IP and be taken to the Web Interface of Shelly Button 1.

General - Home page

In the web interface, you will see three icons at the top of the screen, including one for Wi-Fi and Cloud connection, as well as an icon indicating the state of the web interface(passwords protected or not). Here is what the different status colors mean:

In the home page of the web interface, you will see the battery percentage of your Shelly Button.

Internet & Security

WI-FI MODE - CLIENT

In this setting, you can connect your Shelly Button 1 to your home network by selecting a Wi-Fi network and typing in its password. Enable Wi-Fi Client only, or both Wi-Fi Client and Wi-Fi Client Back-up. If both are enabled, and the Shelly device disconnects from the first network, it will connect to the other one. When connecting your device to your home network, you can also set a static IP address for your device to acccess it at.

Wi-FI RECONNECT

If enabled, the device will periodically scan for a better access point to connect to.

Access point

Configure the device's AP, including switching it on or off, and setting a password. The access point of the device is an open network by default. The SSID is unique and cannot be changed.

RESTRICT LOGIN

Once you’ve enabled this setting, you will type in a username and password, which will be used as login credentials every time you visit the device’s Web UI. This setting is responsible for the lock icon in the home page of the web interface and when it’s enabled the icon will be green and the lock will be closed.

SNTP SERVER

SNTP synchronizes your device's system time with a server that has already been synchronized by another source. There is already a set server, which is the default one - http://time.google.com, however if there are any problems, you can easily change it and enter a new one in the text box. Changing this setting will reboot the device.

ADVANCED - DEVELOPER SETTINGS

In this setting, you can enable/disable Cross-Origin Resource Sharing, CoIoT and MQTT. If you enable CoIoT, a text box will appear, where you can type in the CoIoT peer. There you can enter mcast for multicast or ip:port for unicast. A device is required when the CoIoT peer is changed.

You can also enable MQTT, but actions via Cloud connection will be disabled.

CLOUD

Connecting your Shelly to its cloud allows you to control it remotely, receive notifications and updates about your devices. The default for this setting is for the cloud to be enabled. If you disable the device cloud support, you will lose connection to your device from outside its local network!
