Place your Plum on a hard surface with at least 3” between the rear of the Plum and a wall to allow for adequate cooling. The Plum will also need at least 6" of clearance on either side and above. Plum's are designed for an open-air environment, away from direct sunlight and heat generating devices, such as wine refrigerators. The ambient temperature of the room must be below 80 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure proper cooling and to prevent your Plum from wearing out prematurely. Plum is designed for INDOOR use only, and using your Plum outdoors will void your warranty.
Insert the included power cord into Plum’s power on the rear of the device, and the plug into a standard household power outlet. Plum works with 100-240v outlets, with a standard 15amp or 20amp circuit.
Switch on the power button on Plum which is located next to the power cord. Your Plum will run diagnostics and be ready to use in approximately two minutes.
Connecting to the Internet
Plum works with 802.11 b/g/n on the 2.4GHz spectrum.
Follow the on-screen instructions to find your WiFi network and connect your Plum to the Internet. Your Plum needs an Internet connection in order to automatically identify bottles and provide rich content on your wine.
If you do not have WiFi or a strong signal, you can also use your Plum’s Ethernet port to hardwire the Internet connection.
Plum includes a companion application to make your Plum appliance even more useful. The Plum web application automatically tracks your wine history so you can easily write wine reviews or share what you are drinking on social media apps such as Facebook and Twitter.
To get started, go to my.plum.wine and create an account. Follow the on-screen steps, including activating your Plum, which connects it to your account.
Activating your Plum lets you see what wines are on tap from your computer, tablet, or mobile phone. You can also write reviews, and share your wines with others.
To activate your Plum, touch the SETTINGS button on your appliance touchscreen, then the GENERAL button, and finally the ACTIVATION button.
An activation code should generate instantaneously. Enter the code in the Plum web application to connect your appliance.
