Setting up your TimeMoto Time Clock System

Plugging in & starting setup

Unpack your TimeMoto device, connect the jack at the end of the chord of the included power adapter to the device, and then plug the power adapter into a power outlet. After a few moments, the device will start and show the welcome screen.

The box of your TimeMoto device contains the Quick Installation Guide. This guide helps you to quickly set-up your device with visual instructions and contains more detailed instructions in various languages at the end. 

You can also follow the instructions as set forth below.

Now that your TimeMoto device is connected to a power outlet, you will have to connect it to a Wi-Fi network of your choice as follows:

  1. Take a device (laptop, desktop computers with wireless receivers, tablet or smart phone) that is connected to the Wi-Fi of your choice, and bring it close to the TimeMoto device.  
  2. You will notice that the TimeMoto device displays “TimeMoto-” followed by six digits (e.g. “TimeMoto-123456”). This is the name of TimeMoto device’s hotspot.
  3. Check the list of available wireless networks on your own device. The list should contain the TimeMoto hotspot (e.g. “TimeMoto-123456”).
    How to find the list of available wireless networks:
    - On a laptop or desktop PC, you find the list of available wireless networks in the bottom right of your screen.
    - On a smartphone, you can usually select a network from the wireless network settings of your smartphone.
  4. From the list of available wireless networks, click on the TimeMoto hotspot. You now have connected your own device to the TimeMoto device via its hotspot
Once connected to the TimeMoto hotspot, open a web browser on your device of choice. Now key in the address bar (and not the search bar) the following URL “192.168.8.1” and press Enter. This will load the website to guide you through the first time use set-up of your TimeMoto software and device
