The most simple to re-configure your device is to turn off the first wifi source to which you had connected the device.
After this, start the Bolt device. Since it won’t the wifi source, the blue LED will blink slowly.
At this moment, the Bolt device is ready to be setup again.
You can follow the same process that you did for the first time by clicking Add device and following steps mentioned on the app.
If you want change WiFi hotspot or to access your own data then :
- First install the bolt iot app then click on the add device.
- Turn off your data and make sure you have turned on GPS and WiFi.
- Then bolt’s hotspot gets connected automatically for your easy access.
4.if you want change the WiFi hotspot then click on the connect via hotspot that is displayed at the bottom of your screen.
- Now you can turn on your data and also hotspot . Add your hotspot name and password and your bolt WiFi module gets connected to your mobile data
You do not need to know the password of your Bolt WiFi Module.
When you go through the setup process for the first time, just follow the instructions shown on the app.
- Initially, when the Bolt module is turned on, the blue LED will blink slowly.
2, Then, as you click on “Ready”, the app will ask you to open your GPS, in order to detect the module. 3. As soon as you open your GPS, your phone will automatically connect to your Bolt WiFi Module, and the blue LED will start blinking fast.
- After connecting, the app will ask you to switch off your mobile data. Then, it will ask you to connect to a local WiFi network. It can be your home/college/office WiFi, or your mobile hotspot. You may choose your preferred network.
- If you choose any WiFi network, simply click on the particular WiFi network, enter the password, and your Bolt WiFi Module is successfully linked with the WiFi network.
- If you want to connect to your mobile hotspot, select “Add Network”, open your mobile data and hotspot, and connect.
If you face some issues while connecting to mobile hotspot, you may use, if possible, a second phone in order to solve your problem.
You DO NOT NEED to know the password of your Bolt Module hotspot, as it is not required once your module is connected to a local network.
Hope that your problem is solved.
