In order to configure a Leviton Omni Notifier using the My Leviton cloud, you must have the following:

My Leviton Account
Important Note about My Leviton Accounts:
Each end-user customer should have their own My Leviton account. The My Leviton account does allow for multiple Residences to be configured, if the customer has Omni systems in multiple residences. However, the My Leviton cloud allows a maximum of 25 email messages per hour, which are shared amongst each of the Residences on the My Leviton account. When multiple Residences are configured, pay special attention to ensure the maximum number of emails are not exceeded. After the maximum number of emails have been exceeded, no further emails will be sent for that period.
To create a My Leviton Account, perform the following steps:
(NOTE: If you have an existing My Leviton Account, you can login to your account online and skip to Step 5)
1. Open a browser, type in http://my.leviton.com and hit Enter.
