How to use bluefish app on more than one unit?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have the bluefish app and am currently using it to control my nanobox light at work. I just bought a second nanobox light for my tank at home. How do I use the bluefish app to control both lights? I can't download the app again because it's already installed. If I try to "register a new device" it tells me my email address is already registered. Feeling really stupid right now.

Your not stupid. As of now you cannot have multiple units on the same account. you have to create a new account,with a new email, for each bluefish enabled light. 

 

yeah it sucks

OK, I was hoping that was not the case, but it is what it is. Now I know. Thanks for the response.

I'm working on a better solution as we speak, but a few tips in the meantime:

 

You do not need multiple email accounts.  There is no confirmation needed, so just make one up ie 4rudu3rjf@fakemail.com

 

 I suggest using the same password, enabling "remember me", and changing the last character of the username.  So username1, username2, etc.  That way it is 4 taps to switch between accounts.

Any update on the multiple systems on the same account?  This is a good work around above but it would be better to have all systems on the same account.  After all you certainly want people to buy more than one of what you are selling :) so make it easy!

Something that Spencer is working on. We recently chatted about a few new items. Hoping that we can make this work!
