Facing problem after linking the Bolt module to Bolt cloud

Thank You… but the fact is that I do not have Wi-Fi. I connect only by hotspot. Can you please explain me what are the steps to be done next once connection is strong ? Please share step-by-step screenshots.

Try using a stable internet connection and check whether the blue light is glowing in your bolt module

Blue Light is blinking fast but the green light is not glowing.

Mr. @deeptanudatta

Once refer this link, and check the solution given by me, the thing you need to do is just replace the tab word with mobile, so the solution in the link will help you for connecting the bolt device with two mobiles having network connection. I have checked it and I used to do the same thing for connecting my bolt device to cloud. The link is:

Make sure network connections are proper between the bolt device and mobiles.

I hope this will help you, still if you face any problem, try to post the point where you are facing problem exactly.


Hey listen up here,
You actually need two phone to operate this thing. One phone must have your bolt IoT app, the other will help to be online(Hotspot with active internet).
First Set up your module, secondly open the bolt IoT app and do all the procedure (Verify) then you must see the module blinking and when the blue light glows constantly then what you have to do is from bolt IoT APP(Phone which has the app must get connected to phone with active data hots-spot) you must connect to the hots-spot of other phone (Active Internet) and then Blue and Green both will glow constantly(No Blinking).That’s it you are ready to go!

Hey its pretty simple here,
Since you are saying the blue light is blinking and green not glowing, i would suggest you to first connect using the cable for power supply(5V) try doing this using an adapter or connecting to your computer this should be making the blue light glowing comfortably stable.
Now for the green light since the case here is to use mobile hotspot, take two phones one for hotspot and other to use the Bolt application. I hope you are already registered to be having a bolt account( if not try creating an account through their website, which might be likely be sent to you via e-mail already) use these credentials to enter into the application in the phone where you had application. now try to follow the steps given in the application once you click “Add Device” try to connect the bolt to the hotspot of the other phone. You will need a stable internet connection to let the device connect to your hotspot. Now the device should constantly have the blue and green light being lit.

Hope this was helpful, all the best…!


  1. you on your mobile data
    2.connect to power supply your wifi modele.
  2. on your mobile hotspot then connect your wifi module with your mobile hotspot
  3. check your wifi module green led is on.if green led is on then your wifi module is online else offline.

I tried this, but the blue LED is blinking slowly only with no glowing of Green LED

Guys, I have not still able to do it :joy::joy: !! But, while trying to do it, as the module is connected to the PC via USB cable, the temperature of ESP8266 chip rises . At that point, is there any danger and should I disconnect ?

@deeptanudatta try it by using laptop or computer hotspot to your mobile and then try it .
it will work but whenever you are using bolt device you have turn on your laptop or computer hotspot.

hey @deeptanudatta, here is the solution for your problem. This process is for, when you want to connect your bolt module to your mobile hotspot or the same mobile in which the app is installed.
Please the following steps one by one -

1.This red symbol shows bolt module is not connected to bolt cloud yet. click on “ADD DEVICE”. Carefully read the these three steps and make sure you’ve done the same. Then click on “READY”.

2.Then click on “TRY AGAIN” until it asks for turning off the mobile data.

3.click “OK”. Close your mobile data.

4.Let the app get the details of wifi module. Once it completes, then click on continue.

5.Now to connect the bolt wifi module to your mobile hotspot click on “ADD NETWORK/SETUP VIA HOTSPOT”.

6.Now, add the details of your mobile hotspot. Make sure to select the check box. Then click on the “CONNECT”.

7.The app will ask you to setup the mobile setup. Click on “SETTINGS”.

8.Configure the hotspot with the same SSID and password that you have entered in the app. Make sure you have selected the 2.4 GHz AP band. then do click tick.

9.Now turn on the hotspot.

10.Then come back to the bolt app, The app then asks you to switch on the mobile data. Click on “OK” and turn on your mobile data. This is important step while this the bolt module will connect to your mobile hotspot.

11.Wait to the WiFi module to connect to the cloud and when your bolt wifi module shows the green and blue light on, which represent that the device is connected to hotspot.
Then click on “VERIFY WIFI SETUP”.
The app will then confirm that the bolt module is connected to the cloud and informed you accordingly.

12.Once when the app verified connection between bolt module and the cloud, then click “DONE”.

13.After clicking “Done” you will be taken back to device list page. And now you can see the green symbol shows that your bolt wifi module is connected to the cloud.

Follow the above steps and let me know is it works for you or not…:slightly_smiling_face::slightly_smiling_face:

@sho_shri I hope the reader doesn’t get scared with the long post😂…But its good to see that you wrote that all to help.

Can you please provide me the specifications of the cable used and also the speed of the internet.

There must definitely be some problem with the cable you are using. try using another cable.

I am using data cable of samsung charger and the network is JIO 4G

@deeptanudatta Dude!! Do you know what your PROBLEM is?..ATTENTION here!!!

The phone in which you have installed the BOLT IOT App…needs to connect to Bolt Device as shown here in the video(at 00:35)----> https://trainings.boltiot.com/courses/429176/lectures/6646929

And the reason you can’t get forward is because every time you reach this step your phones WiFi turns ON in order to connect to BOLT Device …BUT!!..IT GETS CONNECTED TO THE OTHER PHONE ("“The one you are using for hotspot”")…because you know WiFi automatically connects to previously saved connections…CHECK IT and you will see!!


Go to the WiFi settings and make the FIRST phone(that has bolt app installed) forget the OTHER phone’s hotspot.

Now when you reachthe step 3 the FIRST phone(one withthe bolt app) will automatically connect to the Bolt device…when you press that READY button…and if it doesn’t …GO TO WIFI settings and connect it manuaaly to BOLTXXXX and proceed further as shown in the video–> https://trainings.boltiot.com/courses/429176/lectures/6646929

I am quite sure this will resolve your issue. Let me know if it does.

Hi @deeptanudatta,

Follow the setup process again to link to your device to your phone’s hotspot. Ignore the warning message “Your device is already linked to your account”.

Do let me know in case you need any other information.

connect your mobile with the app and pc to a hotspot with 2.4 Hz band and then follow the instructions given in the video.

You will need a stable connection for the bolt module to be in connection with cloud all the time. Since you don’t have a WiFi connection make sure that the hotspot with which you are trying to connect is stable and uses 2.4 ghz band and has proper internet connection.
Sometimes there is a bug of some sort , try giving your bolt module a fresh setup (as you did in the beginning) with a new hotspot . This would solve the problem ig.
