Language

The SALTO Homelok app is available in several different languages.

Change language

The way you change the language of the app interface depends on your device's operating system.

For Apple devices, you can change the language of the app independently from the default language of your device's operating system.

To do so, go to your device's Settings app, select SALTO Homelok > Preferred Language and choose the desired language of the app.

Android

For Android devices, the app automatically detects the default language of your device. If your language is not supported in the app then the app will display in English.

To change the language of your Android device go to Settings > System > Languages & input > Languages.

This process may be different for specific models of Android devices.
