How to connect Eufy X8 Series to Wi-Fi
Got a Eufy X8 series robovac? Connecting it to your Wi-Fi is a bit different from the other models, but no worries! I’ll guide you through the process. Just follow these steps, and you’ll have your Eufy X8 hooked up to your Wi-Fi in no time.
Before diving into the connection process, there are a couple of things you need to ensure:
