Does Mira Connect need access to the internet to be configured?
Yes, Mira Portal is used to define the room and add equipment to the room. Mira Connect uses Mira Portal for pairing to the desired room. Mira Connect needs internet access to get a unique pairing code from Mira Portal. Once paired, Mira Connect confirms connection to the local equipment, updates Mira Portal with the connection status, and controls the equipment locally without requiring further access to Mira Portal. To see how to configure Mira Connect without WAN access onsite, see our configuration without WAN article.
