Hi ,

Make sure that you have an account on Bolt Cloud i.e. http://cloud.boltiot.com

##For Bolt Hardware Version 2 (White Color Bolt)

  1. Download Bolt IoT app from Google Playstore or Apple AppStore
  2. Login to the app using the same account details as created on cloud.boltiot.com
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to link your Bolt Device to your Bolt cloud account.

For Bolt Hardware Version 1 (Green/Blue Color Bolt)

If Blue LED is blinking continuously

  1. Check if all the bold sd card files are present in Bolt SD card. If any file is missing then download all the bolt SD card from https://github.com/Inventrom/bolt-sdcard-files and copy it to the root folder of SD (Root folder means the first folder that opens when you click on your SD card icon).
  2. There are two Wi-Fi modes in Bolt:
    1. Bolt creates its own hotspot network for setup purpose.
    2. Bolt is connected to a Wi-Fi network for Internet access.

I suggest you connect the Bolt to your home Wi-Fi network or a Mobile phone hotspot. Search for the file with name bs.txt in the root folder of the SD card. Inside bs.txt you will find two variables ssid(Wi-Fi name) and password(Wi-Fi password). Type the credentials in front of those variables and press enter. Save the file and then Insert the SD card in Bolt and restart. See example below:
ssid:mywifi
pswd:mypassword

If Blue LED is stable

This means the Bolt device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. Do the following steps to link your Bolt device to your Bolt Cloud account.

  1. Find the IP address of your Bolt device
    When you connect your laptop to bolt hotspot then bolt has a static IP 192.168.4.2 but when you connect your Bolt to other Wi-Fi network then bolt has a dynamic IP. In that case, you have to find Bolt IP using Advanced IP Scanner software (www.advanced-ip-scanner.com) or in case Advance IP scanner is not working then you can download Fing APP( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.overlook.android.fing&hl=en ) on your mobile. (Make sure your bolt and mobile should be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. )
  2. Update Bolt Firmware
    You need to ensure that the Wi-Fi network the Bolt is connected to has Internet access enabled and type the following command in your web browser to update the bolt firmware version.:
    bolt_ip_address/update
    For example 192.168.2.37/update
  3. Register the Bolt Device
    After updating the Bolt device the next step is to link the device to your Bolt cloud account. Type the following command in your web browser:
    bolt_ip_address/register?email=your_email_id@xyz.com
    For example: 192.168.2.37/register?email=youremailid@xyz.com

Let me know in case you need further assistance

The ip address for updating BOLT firmware is not working. It keeps on loading and nothing is happening.


#4

Hi,

The update process takes sometime and the connection of the Browser and the device will be lost since the Bolt device is restarting. Please type the following command
bolt_ip/version
and send me the output that you are getting.


#5

bolt_ip/version command is doing nothing. It just keeps on loading for a long time.
Moreover I am not able to register to bolt cloud. I am using this link 192.168.43.187/register?email=v.pandey07@rediffmail.com.
I am having green bolt board and tried to update my bolt firmware using bolt_ip/update but it still keeps on loading for a long time.
