Setting up Aura

Setup Guide

Watch the Setup Video or use the detailed steps that follow.

1. Download the app and create an account

To get started, download the Aura Home app and create an account.

2. Verify your account

Once you’ve created your account, you’ll receive an email from Aura Support to verify your email address. Please note:

  • You must verify your account or you will be locked out after 24 hours

  • If you did not receive an email, check your spam folder

  • The email verification link will work for 7 days after your account has been created

3. Set up the Hub

  1. Plug the Hub into an electrical outlet near a main entrance of your home (place Aura within 15 ft of an entryway)

  2. Wait up to 60 seconds for the Hub to boot. When the LED changes from solid purple to flashing purple, it is ready to set up

4. Connect your phone to the Hub

Android:

  1. Tap the "Go to Wi-Fi Settings" button. This will take you to your phone Wi-Fi Settings

  2. Select Aura from the list of networks. You will receive a notification that the network has no Internet access

  3. Select "Yes", and “Don’t Ask Again” for this Network if prompted

  4. Once connected, return to the Aura app

iOS:

  1. Exit the Aura app when prompted during setup

  2. Go to your phone Wi-Fi Settings

  3. Select Aura from the list of available networks

  4. Once connected, return to the Aura app

5. Connect the Hub to Wi-Fi

Connect the Hub to your primary home Wi-Fi network by selecting your home Wi-Fi network from the list provided in the Aura app. Enter the associated password.

6. Enter the location of the Hub

Enter the street address of the location of the Hub. It is important that you put in the correct address to enable the auto arm and auto disarm feature and see members as they enter and leave.

Once the LED is solid green, your Hub setup is complete.

7. Set up the Sensor

To pair the Sensor with the Hub:

  1. Plug it into an electrical outlet on the opposite side of your home

    • The Hub and Sensor should be no more than 50ft (15.25m) apart
  2. Wait for the LED to change from solid to flashing purple

  3. Select your Sensor when it appears on the screen

  4. Give it a name (eg. Front Door, Kitchen, Back Entrance)

  5. Select OK

Now that you are able to see motion in Live View, check your coverage area.
