How do I update my HovalConnect app?
Want to make sure you are using the latest version of the HovalConnect app?
The HovalConnect app is managed via the Apple (iPhone) and Google (Android) app stores. As soon as a new version of the app is available, you can download it from those stores.
You can use the automatic update function to ensure you are always running the latest version. But if you prefer to update your apps manually, you can find the new version in whichever app store you use.
See here for a guide on how to set up automatic updates or perform a manual update:

Please continue to use HovalDesk with the Hoval TopTronic app for Hoval plants that have not yet been migrated to HovalConnect.
What can I do if my plant is offline or the connection keeps dropping out?
Is the HovalConnect app showing that your plant is “offline”? Does the connection to your plant keep dropping out? It can often be difficult to pinpoint the cause of problems like these, since they could be down to your Internet connection, your home network or – more rarely – HovalConnect.
Problems with your Internet connection:
First check that you can open other webpages quickly and easily. If you cannot, please contact your Internet provider.
Problems with your WLAN:
Use your smartphone or a mobile computer (tablet or laptop) to test the strength of your WLAN signal right next to your HovalConnect gateway. If you have poor reception or none at all on the other device either (no bars or just one bar of WLAN signal strength), your WLAN signal is probably too weak to establish a stable connection. In this case, you should connect the gateway via a network cable or try using a repeater. Contact your network engineer (electrician) for assistance.
Problems with the HovalConnect gateway:
If you have already carefully checked the possible sources of error mentioned above, please restart the HovalConnect gateway. Do this by switching the gateway off and disconnecting the plug for approximately 30 seconds, before plugging it back in and switching the gateway on again. If this does not help either, please contact the HovalConnect service team at email@example.com.
I am having problems with the HovalConnect app.
Are you having problems with the HovalConnect app on your smartphone or tablet?
Your smartphone’s operating system
Please start by checking your smartphone’s operating system. The HovalConnect app runs on the Android and Apple iOS operating system versions that are supported by the manufacturers. Unfortunately, you cannot use HovalConnect on smartphones with older operating system versions. If you do not have an up-to-date operating system, you can use HovalConnect via a browser. In this case, you will receive your plant messages via e-mail rather than push notifications.
Reinstalling the app
If your operating system is not the problem, it may help to uninstall the app and download it again from whichever app store you use (Google Play or the Apple App Store). See your smartphone’s user guide for information on how to uninstall an app, or go direct to Google (Android) or Apple:
If reinstalling does not solve the problem, please contact the HovalConnect service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Are the dashboard and/or weather data not being displayed after you have logged in? This is usually because your browser is not downloading this data again. Clearing your browser data (buffer/cache) will help. Once you have done this, the pages will display correctly again.
Clearing browser data:
- This keyboard shortcut works for most browsers: CTRL+ALT+Delete
