How to Connect Litter Robot to Phone

  1. First, make sure your Litter Robot is a model that can connect to a smartphone via the app. These models include the Litter-Robot 3 Connect and the Litter-Robot 4.
  2. Download the Litter-Robot Connect app from your respective app store. iPhone users should be able to find the app on the App Store, while Android users should find the app on the Google Playstore. 
  3. Once downloaded, open the app and sign in with your Litter Robot account. If you do not yet have a Litter Robot account, you can proceed to create one first. 
  4. Once logged in to your account, you can proceed to connect the app with the Litter Robot. It is recommended to remove your cat from the room if they are easily frightened as the process will force the Litter Robot to cycle through its functions.

  6. Once the Power button is blue, press Next on the app.
  7. The app will then ask you to scan the serial number/QR code on the Litter Robot. It should be at the back of the machine, and on the outside of the box it came in. 
  8. You can name your Litter Robot from the app. This makes it easier when you have multiple Litter Robots in your home. 
  9. Next, go to your phone settings and look for the Litter Robot Wi-Fi. If it prompts you for a password, enter “neverscoop.”
  10. Back at the app, the setup will then ask you for your home network password to allow the Litter Robot access. 
  11. You have successfully paired your Litter Robot to your phone.
