How to do a Network Check

This article will let you know how to perform a network check on a FitMachine.

Conducting a network check will help you ensure your network is configured correctly and it is communicating with the cloud. 


The steps for performing a network check are as follows:

  1. Sign into the FitMachine App and make sure you have Bluetooth activated on your phone. You will need to sign in with an Admin account. Please contact your site admin or MOVUS Support to adjust your permissions if you are not an admin.

  2. Scan the MAC Address of the FitMachine sensor in question using the FitMachine App. A window will pop up asking if you’d like to View/Edit the device or continue scanning, press View / Edit. This will bring up the details of the device.

    It’s also possible to select the sensor from the ‘My FitMachines’ list in the App. You will be able to connect to the sensor over Bluetooth if you can see the WiFi symbol on the right hand side of the entry.

  3. If the FitMachine sensor is communicating with your phone over Bluetooth, you’ll be able to see the Firmware version, the WiFi network and the WiFi Status. Tap on the WiFi Status field to display the Network Check page.


    If you can’t connect to the FitMachine sensor, Force Close the app and try again. If this doesn’t work, please get in touch with and reference the MAC Address of the unit.

    Simply opening the network check page should run a Network Check, however if it doesn't, you have the option to re-run the check as shown in the images below.

    Successful Check

    If the WiFi signal strength is strong and the samples are making it through to the MachineCloud, the network check will look like this:

    Unsuccessful Check
    If the Network Check results in anything other than that in the ‘Successful Check’ image, for instance what can be seen in the image below, please contact MOVUS Support here.

    These are the steps required to perform a Network Check.
