Stay connected with Vitoconnect

The Vitoconnect Wi-Fi module allows smartphone and tablet users to easily monitor and operate their Viessmann boiler, and stay in control anytime, anywhere using the ViCare app.

Vitoconnect connects directly to the boiler control using an Optolink cable, and it communicates over the Internet via the local Wi-Fi network. A comprehensive security design was implemented for Vitoconnect, which successfully passed the VDE Institute test for smart home information security.

Getting started with Vitoconnect

Vitoconnect is the interface between the Viessmann boiler control and the ViCare app. For everything to work smoothly, the Vitoconnect must first be installed and put into operation. Follow the instructions below to set up your new Vitoconnect unit: 

1. Mount the Vitoconnect on the wall, and ensure that the installation site is dry and frost-proof. Also ensure that the Wi-Fi signal is strong enough in the area where the Vitoconnect is mounted.

2. Connect the cables. There are two connections located on the bottom of the Vitoconnect – one for the power supply, and one USB port for the Optolink cable which connects to the boiler control.

3. Download the ViCare app from the App Store or Google Play, and install it on your mobile device.

4. Start the ViCare app and tap "Create account" to create a new Viessmann account for yourself. Note: User registration is required – Vitoconnect will only work with a valid Viessmann account. After creating the account, login to the ViCare app with the email address and password that you selected.

5. When prompted by the ViCare app, scan the QR code that's on the Vitoconnect unit. If there is no QR code, enter the serial number and ID from the Vitoconnect to register it.

6. Your mobile device should then automatically connect to the "Vitoconnect" Wi-Fi network (on Android). For iOS devices, open the Settings app and manually connect to the "Vitoconnect" Wi-Fi network (you should be able to paste the WPA2 password from the clipboard). Then you can switch back to the ViCare app.

7. Follow the instructions in the ViCare app to finish the setup process.

The Vitoconnect unit and ViCare app should now be set up successfully. You can check this by looking at the LEDs near the top of the Vitoconnect – if there are two green LEDs, it is operating correctly.
