You are connected to your Twine. Fight the temptation to refresh this page!

Before we begin

Here's how setup will go.

  1. Follow the prompts (and fight the temptation to refresh the page) to connect to your Twine and tell it how to connect to your WiFi network.
  2. Next, you'll create a Twine account (if you don't already have one).
  3. Then you can tell Twine what in your world to watch, and how to notify you when something happens.

Click on the troubleshooting tab below and email us if you get stuck or have any questions!

Requirements for setting up Twine

  1. A computer, tablet or smartphone with Wi-Fi. (This won't be needed once Twine's up and running.) Please make sure you have temporarily:
    • disconnected from wired networks
    • disabled manually entered DNS servers such as Google Public DNS
  2. A compatible web browser with Javascript turned on: Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Internet Explorer is not currently supported, but may work.
  3. A Wi-Fi network that is:
    • compatible with 802.11b devices (not N-only or 5GHz-only)
    • using one of these security methods: WPA or WPA2 Personal, WEP key, open
    • not extended or bridged (multiple routers with the same network name)

To connect to a hidden network, you may need a firmware update first. Learn more.

I'm Twine. Let's talk.

step 1

flip me on my back and wait for a solid light If there's no light, remove the batteries/power for 10 seconds, and then immediately flip me on my back again.

Connect to me

step 2

Connect to the Wi-Fi network named Twine

It may take up to a minute for the network to appear. Make sure you disconnect your computer from wired networks, too.

Waiting for you... Success!

Your network

step 3

what network should I connect to?

A WEP key must contain 10 or 26 characters from 0-9 and A-F.
Twine doesn't support bridged or 5GHz-only networks.
We don't read or store your wireless credentials. This stays on your Twine.

Flip me back up

step 4

turn Twine over so that its name is facing up


step 5

your turn: connect back to your network



What's Twine doing right now?

The light on Twine (look for the tiny hole on the back) indicates its general state. Normally, this light will be off. If it's on, this is what that means:

trouble connecting to the network?

First, make sure your batteries are good! Double check that you have the correct network name and password/key, and let's try again.

If your Twine gets stuck in one mode, you can remove the batteries/power for 10 seconds to restart it. Twine will try to connect to the last network you gave it, but if you immediately flip Twine on its back, it will go into setup mode.


Once you're connected, you can go to to view your Twine's sensors and to configure it to send you notifications.
