How to connect to your Messana Control system (mBox) using Bluetooth

Bluetooth connectivity offers a reliable backup for accessing and managing your Messana system when a Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi options are unavailable. This can be especially useful in a range of scenarios, such as during system setup, installation, or in cases where your home router or internet connection is temporary unavailable.

The Bluetooth connection provide full capability of the App, however will only be available on a short distance range and it is intended as a backup use only. However, to improve the range of connectivity, remove the mBox cover by unscrewing the four cross-headed screws.

If the Messana App detects that there's no internet or local Wi-Fi connection available when trying to access a system, it will automatically suggest connecting via Bluetooth as an alternative.

To connect via Bluetooth follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you’re within a reasonable range (up to 10 feet) of your mBox to establish a reliable Bluetooth connection.
  2. Open the Messana App on your smartphone.
  3. Navigate to the Main Menu by clicking on the burger icon in the top-left corner. Follow this by selecting the “Select your system” page and tapping the three-dot icon on the top-right corner to access additional options.
  4. Choose the Connect via Bluetooth option. If your app is currently connected to a different system, navigate to the Menu, then Settings, and select Connect via Bluetooth.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions provided by the Messana App to initiate and establish a Bluetooth connection between your smartphone and the mBox.
