Download the Blackfoot Connect mobile app

Manage your devices, network, and parental controls, as well as monitoring speed and data usage.

1. Choose your download platform.
Search either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for ”Blackfoot Smart Home” — or click the buttons above — and install it on your mobile device.

2. Select “SIGN UP” towards the bottom of the screen.

3. Enter your personal information.
The password you enter here will be used to access the app. Note: Please wait at least 10 minutes after your GigaSpire has been ‘turned up’ before attempting step 4.

4. Tap the QR code that appears within the app.
You will be asked to allow the app to access your camera. Point your camera at the QR Code found on the bottom of your GigaSpire (example shown). Then select OK.

5. Name your network and create a password.

  • The Router Name will be used throughout the app.
  • The Network Name (SSID) is what you will use as your wireless connection name.
  • Select a password for your wireless network. If you do not want to change it on all the devices in your home, use your existing wireless SSID and Password from your current router.

6. Click Submit and you're all done!
