How do I setup my WAND speakers in Away Mode?

Away mode allows your music device to communicate directly with a WAND speaker that
can then redistribute music to other WAND speakers. This is useful when you don’t have
internet access and want to utilize your phone’s cellular data, or want to play content that
is stored on the device when away from a home Wi-Fi network, for example. To get start
ed:
1.Flip the Home/Away switch on the back of your speaker[s] to “Away”, indicated with an
icon of a plane taking off. The LED on top of your speaker will turn orange.
2. Go into the Wi-Fi settings on your device.
3. Speakers in Away Mode will show up as available Wi-Fi networks that you can connect
to. Connect to the speaker that you want to be your primary speaker (note the name of the speaker will read" RIVA SPEAKE Name" followed by a sic digit code.  When asked for a
password, enter 12345678. This speaker will serve as an access point that your other
speakers will connect to.
4. To add additional speakers in Away Mode, first make sure that the additional speakers
are also set to Away Mode.
5. On the primary speaker, press and hold the Play/Pause and – buttons simultaneously
for about 3 seconds, until the LED light ring blinks once.
6. On secondary speakers, press and hold the Play/Pause and + buttons simultaneously
for about 3 seconds, until the LED light ring blinks once.
7. Once connected, the primary speaker will initially display a yellow LED light ring, but
will change to the appropriate color depending on the connection type to your music
source. For example, if you connect to the primary speaker via Bluetooth, it will turn blue.
Secondary speakers’ LED lights will remain white.
