Connect Marty To Your WiFi Network

These articles are for Marty the Robot version 1

If you've received your Marty after 2020 it's likely you have a version 2!

Connect Marty to your WiFi network

This is the most common way to communicate with your Marty, and it's what we recommend our users do.

This is a one time set up process, where you tell Marty your WiFi network details, and then every time you turn Marty on it will connect to that network.

First time setup

A brand-new Marty can be set up, connected to your WiFi and Calibrated using our app. This will only take a couple of minutes, and once you're done, you can use the built-in remote control to get Marty moving, and even give your Marty it's own name!

Get it on Google Play Get it on the Apple App Store

Once you’re in the app, select the green “Set Up Marty” card and follow the on-screen instructions.

Where has the Marty Setup network gone?

If you turn your Marty on, and there's no Marty Setup wifi network, that's a good thing!

That means that Marty is connected to your WiFi network already, and you can get on with using Marty!

Next Steps

The first time you use your Marty, you'll also need to go through calibration. That makes sure all Marty's motors know exactly where they are, and it's important for making sure your Marty walks right! You don't need to calibrate every time you turn on your Marty

Getting Started with Scratch

Once your Marty is set up and calibrated, you can start programming him! There are some instructions to get you started here
