What is the STIHL Smart Connector?

The STIHL Smart Connector is a small, wireless device that connects to your STIHL tool. It monitors your tool's usage and sends data back to STIHL. This data helps STIHL to better understand how your tool is being used and to provide you with the best possible support.

The STIHL Smart Connector is easy to install and use. Prior to using the STIHL Connected App, create an account on iOS or Google Play. Then, launch the app and prepare your devices. What product you want to link will be requested of you. You can connect some of the more recent STIHL items simply scanning the QR code on the device. The model and serial number must be manually entered if there is no QR code. You must now connect your machine to the STIHL Smart Connector. Again, a model-specific video in the app will demonstrate how to do this for the majority of new STIHL devices. If there isn't a video, the Smart Connector needs to be attached wherever the sensor can detect an electrical current. Your product should now be configured in the app.

The STIHL Smart Connector is a great way to protect your investment and to get the most out of your STIHL tools. With the extended warranty and the STIHL Smart Connector, you can be confident that your tools will be covered against any possible manufacture issues for years to come.
