How to Setup the AUKEY PA1 Smart Plug
Setting up the smart plug is easy to do with an app and a few steps.

The smartphone or tablet being used will need to be logged into the 2.4Ghz side of the router.

Most new routers have 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz frequencies that can transmit and receive data.

The AUKEY PA1 smart plug only transmits and receives on the 2.4Ghz band so any device used to control it will need to be on the same frequency.

The WiFi password will also be needed.
