When it comes to integrating all of your smart home gear, there are few devices out there that do it as well as the Harmony Hub.
After all, without an integrated system for your smart devices to work through, you don’t really have a smart home so much as an arbitrary collection of smart home devices.
Designed with the sole purpose of turning your smart device into a fully functional universal remote, the Harmony Hub really ties the whole show together.
If you set it up right, you can effectively change TV channels, control your lighting and fans, and a whole range of other tasks. Pretty neat!
However, we do realize that there is no chance at all that you would be here reading this if all of this was working as it should. With the Harmony Hub, there are a few confusing issues that can arise from time to time.
Fortunately, due to the fact that it was well made in the first place, these problems tend to be quite minor.
Having trawled through the forums, boards, and user reviews, one issue that a lot of you seem to be having is finding the IP address of your Harmony Hub. Admittedly, doing this is a little harder than we would have expected.
Nevertheless, we put the time in and figured out how it is done, and now we are going to share that knowledge with you. So, if this is the information you have been looking for, look no further!
How Do I Find The IP Address Of My Harmony Hub
Below you will find a detailed step by step guide on how to find the IP address of your Harmony Hub.
Follow these steps closely and you should have what you need within the duration of only a few minutes. So, without further ado, let’s get right into it.
- Seeing as you are having connectivity issue with your Harmony Hub, the first logical course of action is to check the status of your Wi-Fi connection. The Wi-Fi must not contain an emoji as these are not supported by the Harmony Hub. This catches quite a few people out, so if you do have an emoji, you will need to get rid of it.
- After you have resolved the emoji issue (if there was one), the next thing you need to do is to unplug the Harmony Hub from the power adapter. Once you have unplugged it, just leave it this way for about 15 seconds before plugging it back in again. The Harmony Hub will then take up to a minute before it fully powers on again. Let it do its thing.
- After the Harmony Hub has powered up, the next step will be power cycling. Though this sounds a little odd, all you need to do is unplug your router and wait for about ten seconds before you plug it back in again.
- Quite often the whole set of complications while trying to find the IP address can be caused by the most simple of things – the Harmony Hub and the router being placed too far away from each other. So, we would recommend that you try placing the two closer together and seeing does it make any difference.
- The next logical course of action is to check what band that your router is putting out its signal at. If it is at 5GHz, we would recommend changing over to the 2.4 option instead. With older routers, the 5GHz option will not be available. In which case, this step can be ignored entirely.
- In the rare event that your router is failing to communicate its name, or SSID, there is also a handy way to resolve this. To do this, all it takes is selecting the “Hidden Network” option from the Wi-Fi screen. After this, you just need to input your information manually.
- The last available step to you is to try connecting a different device to your Wi-Fi. The whole purpose of this is to check whether or not it is possible to actually connect to your Wi-Fi in the first place. If your device does connect, this would indicate that there is a larger problem than we could have anticipated with your Harmony Hub.
