ProtoPie Connect

  • I cannot wirelessly connect ProtoPie Player on my smart device to ProtoPie Connect, what should I do?

    Here are some steps to help you troubleshoot connection issues between ProtoPie Player and ProtoPie Connect:

    • Ensure that your computer and smart device are connected to the same network and that the connection is stable.
    • Double-check that the IP address displayed in ProtoPie Connect on your computer matches the one shown in ProtoPie Player on your smart device (e.g.,

    If you're still unable to establish a connection between ProtoPie Player and ProtoPie Connect, it's possible that your network has specific security limitations or the IP addresses don't match, despite being on the same network.

    As an alternative, you can try to use a different connection (e.g mobile hostpot), or connect your prototypes using a USB cable instead.

  • Can I connect multiple Arduino devices through ProtoPie Connect?

    Currently, our in-built Arduino plugin supports the connection of a single Arduino device at a time. However, for enterprise plan users, there is a solution to connect multiple Arduino devices within ProtoPie Connect. By creating bridge apps, you can establish connections to an unlimited number of Arduino devices simultaneously.

    If you have any further questions or need assistance with Arduino device connections, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our support team is always ready to provide guidance!

  • Can I run prototypes on ProtoPie Connect remotely, outside of my LAN?

    Currently, we don’t provide this ability within the ProtoPie Connect app. However, you can use ngrok to bypass this limitation and allow others to test your Connect prototypes remotely, in external network environments. Detailed guidelines on how to use ngrok with ProtoPie Connect can be found on this page.
