This article is a step-by-step guide to assist you in setting up Mitte Home.
These instructions are for users who would like to use the companion app as well as for those who are using the Mitte Home device without the Mitte App.
At the end of this page, you’ll find further information, tips, and additional articles on how to use your Mitte Home device.

2. Finding the right place to set your Mitte Home device up
The Mitte Home device should be set up on an even, level surface without exposure to direct sunlight or direct proximity to fireplaces or heaters. Please don't expose the device to temperatures outside 4-40 degrees Celsius and don't put anything heavier than 8 kg on top of it.
The Mitte Home device should be within reach of your Wi-Fi signal if you want to connect your device and use the companion app.
You will need a 230V power supply nearby to connect your Mitte Home device.
3. Installing the drip tray

4. Plugging the device into a power source
Please connect your Mitte Home to a power supply of 230V.
All notification lights will flash white 3 times after you have plugged the device in.
If you are going to use the Mitte Home device without the companion app (Mitte app) and without connecting the device, you can skip the next four steps and go directly to 9. Inserting The Water Tank.
