To create a new network, select Create new network. You are then prompted to create either a Classic or Evolution network.


After selecting your network type, the New Network page is shown. In the New network screen, you can assign a network name, time zone, location, sharing settings, network mode and network frequencies. 


Note that a Location must be set in order for sunset and sunrise times to work correctly.


The network Mode has two options: Balanced and Better performance. Most types of network should use Balanced mode. Although networks with a large number of devices which are very close to each other (i.e. over 100), Better performance mode can be selected. The default option for Evolution networks is Better performance. Better performance allows faster communication speed, but at the cost of slightly reduced signal strength. Note that changing the network mode is not possible after the network has been created.


Two communication Frequencies are automatically set when creating the network, but you can manually change these to other frequencies if you know that there are specific frequencies that you would want to avoid). Note that changing the frequencies can only be done at the time of first creating the network. 


You can also share your network if needed. Sharing a network can also be done at a later stage. If you would like other devices to be able to access this network, select Sharing and then one of the following options: Administrator only, Password protected or. Open. For administrator access and password recovery, add a valid Administrator email and a password.


Administrator only The network is hidden from the network list unless the end-user has access.


Password protected Allows user and administrator access.


Open Allows anyone with the Casambi app to control the network, but they cannot make configuration changes.



Note that Evolution networks offer three levels of user access: User, Manager and Administrator. Managers can configure the network but not create new user accounts. Only an administrator account can create new accounts.
