Regarding Connecting to Device

I connected to the device via the mobile hotspot of a friend. Now everytime, when I am trying to connect to my device, it’s asking for a password. What password shall I use? Whether I committed a mistake while connecting to the device.

The default should be bolt1234, if you are asking of connecting to the bolt’s hotspot.

To connect wifi module you need two mobile phones and then follow the steps given below.
1.Download Bolt Iot app in first phone.
2.Start the wifi module by supplying power using USB cable. The blue LED starts blinking slowly which indicates wifi module is transmitting its hotspot for connection for setup.
3.Turn off internet in first phone and turn on the wifi.
4.Select the bolt hotspot.
5.When your phone got connected with wifi module’s hotspot the blue LED will blink faster.
6.Turn on hotspot in second phone.
7.Open Bolt iot app connect the wifi module with second phone’s hotspot by following the steps described in app.
8.When the setup is completed the blue LED will become stable and stop blinking.
9.If the internet connection of second phone is on along with hotspot then the green LED which indicates internet connectivity of wifi module will glow and become stable.
10.The green LED indicates that the BOLT wifi module got internet connectivity and also got connected with BOLT CLOUD.
11.If the internet connection is off in second phone then your wifi module is connected with the second phone’s hotspot but does not have internet connectivity.So turn on the internet of second phone.

@sayankumardas001 You do not have to connect to the device manually every time. The Bolt transmits its own hotspot so that it can be configured to connect to a WiFi by the app.

Do the setup via the app and it will connect to the Bolt’s WiFi automatically.
