How to Configure the Breezy Zephyr

Background

Congratulations on getting your hands on a Breezy Zephyr! They're still pretty rare, so yours is a special case to warrant access to this brand-new, never-before-seen device. 

Note that in order for the Zephyr to be useful to you, it will have to get access to some printers. That means you must do one of the following:

  • Plug a printer in to one of the Zephyr's 4 USB ports, or
  • Join the Zephyr to a network where some printers reside.

Whichever option you use, you'll also need to get the device authenticated, so you have to do the setup step from the mobile app either way (note that setup currently asks you to join to a WiFi network -- we realize that if you're connected to Ethernet that isn't really necessary, so we'll be updating the app shortly so that it doesn't force you to join WiFi if the Zephyr advertises that it already has an IP address.)

Procedure

Here's how to set it up:

  1. Launch the Breezy app and tap the menu option.

  2. Tap the Zephyr menu option. 
    • If you don't see see a "Zephyr" option, it hasn't been enabled for your account. Drop us an email and we'll get it added for you.
  3. Tap Zephyr Setup.  
  4. This step varies a bit depending on whether you're on iOS or Android. 
    • On Android: You'll be prompted to choose a WiFi network.  Tap the one where your printers live, and enter the password.  Tap OK, and you're done.
    • On iOS: You'll have to manually enter the SSID and password for your network. Tap OK when done.
  5. Wait a few minutes.  The Zephyr is joining your network and restarting itself, detecting and installing your printers, and authenticating them to your account.  This generally takes about a minute.  
  6. Done!  The printers will be available to you (and you alone) under the Print at Home section of the Breezy app.  Printer sharing across your organization is coming soon.
