Wifi+bluetooth apc

remeber no wifi router just bluetooth only 


Sorry for the very late reply. I do not check on the community forums very often.

To answer your question, YES. I have connect to my APC using Bluetooth only with
the WiFI + Bluetooth APC model.

As with all things Anova it sort of was not obvious. Firstly, I had all sorts of problems with
keeping connectivity with my APC via WiFI. Personally the ability to control it at work
is a bit a gimmick to me, but to each his own.

I have been using my APC unpaired from by Android phone and have been simply
doing cooks manual setting the timer.

To implement your scenario, I blocked the APC at the router and then attempted to
re-pair. When re-pairing, it popped up a example APC display face showing the
current water temp and temp setting and asked to confirm if this was “your” APC.

I selected yes, and then the app (Android) proceeds to attempt a WiFi connection.

I backed out and it prompted are you sure you want to cancel set up? I indicated

Restarting the app now shows a connection to the APC with a Bluetooth symbol
at the top. So I am guessing I have taken WiFi out of the equation and am communicating
solely by Bluetooth.

Sorry one last thing I did not make clear in my last post, after connecting solely via Bluetooth
I can get the current temperature status of the APC and can set temp, time, start and stop
