Rest Mini is small and portable, making it a dream travel buddy. Just make sure to bring the power cord, as Rest Mini does not feature a backup battery.
If you’re away from home and want to control Hatch Mini using the Hatch Sleep app, you’ll need to connect your mobile device to the local Wi-Fi network you’ll be using. If you don’t have Wi-Fi access, but can still plug Rest Mini into a wall outlet, you can still use touch control on the device itself to play, stop, and cycle through the 8 sounds (see more detail here).
If you're traveling where there won't be any WiFi available:
- Make sure you double-check your alarms. Your alarms will run as scheduled even if you can't get connected to a WiFi network.
- Additionally, if you are traveling to a location where there is no WiFi, please make sure your routine is set up just how you want it, you won't be able to make any edits if you can't get your Rest Mini online.
Traveling to a Hotel:
In order to connect to your Rest Mini via the Hatch Sleep app at a hotel with a captive portal network (or somewhere where WiFi is unavailable), you’ll need to set up a hotspot via your smartphone to connect and control your Rest Mini. Captive portal networks, like those found at many hotels, hospitals, and airports, require each device using the WiFi to sign into the network. You'll only need to have your hotspot active when you want to connect and make changes to your Rest Mini, if your routine and alarms are set up you won't need to keep the WiFi hotspot active.
