Thank you for purchasing Hubitat Elevation. Before you can begin creating home automation that is local, reliable, fast and private, you'll need to complete a few simple setup and registration steps.
NOTE: If your "Get Started" page does not look like the one in the Registration and Setup section below (it will have a white background with a green button instead), you probably have newer hub firmware and should follow the current Registration and Setup document instead.
Your kit includes the following:
Let's get started by finding a location that is suitable for the best experience possible.
WARNING: Your Hubitat Elevation hub DOES NOT support PoE (Power over Ethernet). Attaching your hub to a PoE port may cause permanent damage and void the warranty.
2. The other end of the Ethernet cable plugs into an available LAN port on your personal router or modem/router combination device provided by your Internet Service Provider. (NOTE: PoE ports are not supported. See warning in step 1.)
NOTE: The Networking settings are available on model C-5 and C-7 hubs only.
Insert the included micro USB cable into your Hubitat Elevation hub and connect the other end to the cable to the included power adapter.
Plug in the power adapter to begin the boot process.
NOTE: The light on your hub will glow blue during boot up and remain that way until the hub has fully booted. Once your hub has finished booting and is ready for operation, the light will glow green.
Note: Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge (prior to the Chromium version) are not supported. Google Chrome is recommended for the best experience, but Firefox may also be used. If you experience issues with a supported browser, please try disabling third-party browser extensions.
IMPORTANT! Your computer or mobile device must be on the same Local Area Network as your hub in order to register. If your hub does not appear, ensure you have your hub and computer or mobile device connected to the same router and network. Also make certain and they are not isolated by a WiFi guest account. If your hub still does not appear, press the Advanced Discovery button to find hubs via mDNS, MAC address, or LAN scan.
Press the Connect to Hub button.
Press the Get Started button.
NOTE: If your "Get Started" page does not look like the above (it will have a white background with a green button instead), you probably have newer hub firmware and should follow the current Registration and Setup document instead.
Next, you will be taken to the Terms of Service page. You must check the box for the Continue button to appear.
Step through the tutorial to familiarize yourself with your new Hubitat Elevation user interface.
Give your hub a name (this is how it will appear on findmyhub.hubitat.com, the mobile app, and some places in the administrative interface) and enter your postal code. Entering your correct postal code will allow lights to activate at the correct sunrise and sunset times for your location. (To change or verify this after the hub is set up, navigate to Settings > Localization.) Then, choose Save and Exit to Main Menu.
You will now be redirected to the Main Menu of your hub. Be sure to note the IP address in your browser address bar. This is a fast way to access the web interface (also called the Main Menu ir admin interface) of your hub. For an even faster and more convenient connection to Hubitat Elevation, we recommend bookmarking the hub address in your web browser.
Select the Register Hub card.
Press the Continue button to register your hub. Your hub cannot use the Hubitat mobile app and cloud services unless it is first registered.
If you do not already have a Hubitat Portal account, enter the email address you want to use to register your hub, together with a strong password, and press the Create Account button.
Check the email address of the account you registered for the confirmation code.
The email sender is email@example.com.
NOTE: Check your email SPAM or JUNK folders if you cannot find the email in your inbox.
Enter the verification code from the email and press the Confirm Code button.
You will again be redirected to the Hubitat Elevation Main Menu of your hub.
Select Settings from the sidebar and press the Hub Registration card.
Confirm your hub is registered with the correct account information.
Congratulations! You have completed the initial setup of your new Hubitat Elevation hub. You can now begin adding devices to your hub, installing apps and Elevate your environment with automations.
