When the Gift Code Setup is not an option for preloading photos; or if you simply want to see the photos on the physical frame before giving it as a gift, you can physically set up the frame.
|NOTE: This option requires that somebody with a smart device is present at the gift recipient's home to complete the frame setup.|
Follow these steps to set up the frame as a gift:
Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play and search “Aura Frames” to locate and install the free Aura App. Alternatively, you can go to auraframes.com/app to download the app.
Open the app and create your own Aura account by entering your email address. Tap GET STARTED and on the next screen input your name and a strong, unique password.
After you have completed the setup instructions, please use the Aura App to add photos to the frame.
When you are satisfied with the photos appearing on the frame, disconnect the frame from the mains and pack it up to ship it to the actual recipient.
|Important: The frame is now set up, but connected to your own WiFi network. When the frame is plugged in at the new location, it will continue to look for the original network until an invited frame member use their Aura App to change the WiFi network. This cannot be done remotely.|
Option 1: You or another (invited) frame member are present with their smart device to change the WiFi network on the frame
Option 2: If this is not possible, you need to invite the actual gift recipient to the frame so they can use their own smart device (if available) to change the network themselves. To change the WiFi network, follow this FAQ.
