- Open the “Beam Remote” app on your smartphone/tablet.

Select the Wi-Fi network you want to connect with. Use the keyboard tab of the Beam Remote app on your smartphone/tablet to enter the password of your Wi-Fi network.

If you have connected your smartphone/tablet to the same home Wi-Fi network Beam is connected to, and you are still not able to locate Beam, please go to our official support page: www.beamlabsinc.com/support.
