Do I need an Internet connection?
Yes, you do and it is compulsory!
Our Counters must be plugged and connected through a Wifi or Ethernet connection in order to be able to fetch the information needed and display a number on your Smiirl box. 😍
What you can connect your Counter to:

- ✔ Your own router, via an Ethernet cable, you will need to do so an RJ45 cable. In the following article, we describe every step to make sure your Counter works through an Ethernet connection. 💪🏼
