I too was tired of connecting bolt wifi at first…so first add the device in mobile and then turn off your network and turn on your wifi by that you will get connected to wifi, there after u can see link to bolt cloud by that if will connect to cloud.
You will need 2 mobile or 1 mobile and a wifi network if you have.
If you have 2 mobile them follow the steps.
- Switch off the hotspot and data in which you have downloaded Bolt IoT app.
- Switch on the wifi in the mobile.
- Connect to bolt module by enter the password shown in BOLT IoT app.
4)Click on Continue, It will search for internet
- Turn on internet and hotspot in another mobile.
- It will connect to the bolt iot cloud.
- To use 1 mobile for bolt module and hotspot.
- now switch off the wifi and on the data as well as the hotspot of previous mobile
- Now you are ready with it.
Plz reply if it was helpful for you?
Thank you so much, Vinayak. It helped me a lot
First, ensure that your mobile data and the BOLT module is off
Second, follow the steps in the video to connect your BOLT module with the app
Third, connect the BOLT module to your home wifi or your mobile data so that your BOLT module will be connected to the cloud.
If everything went well then both the wifi (blue LED) and the cloud (green LED) LED on your BOLT module should be stable.
If an exception occurs ignore the exception, restart the app and you will see your device registered on your app, then click on the button LINK TO BOLT CLOUD and click the VERIFY WIFI SETUP.
Go to cloud.boltiot.com and check if your device status is ONLINE or OFFLINE. If it is ONLINE then you are good to go.
I had the same problem and these are the steps that I did when the exception appeared. Hope this helps.
