If all goes well you start to see the KiddieAlarm to light up blue. This means your device is now operating and ready to be configured. Read our getting started guide on how to set it up and consult our FAQ for more info.
At any time you should be able to determine the status of the KiddieAlarm easily by looking at the color behaviour:
- Steady fixed color: the device is operating normally, even when offline it will keep working.
- Lots of colors moving slowly: the device is operating normally, even when offline it will keep working.
- A color is flashing (on and off): the device is not operating normally, either it is in setup mode, either there is a problem. Investigate the color flashing with the list below.
If a color is flashing on your KiddieAlarm following situations might be applicable for you:
- The device is flashing blue: it is either in a first time setup mode (read our getting started guide) or the device restarted and is now offline
- The device is flashing red 10 times: the device is resetting itself to factory defaults. This is a manually initiated process.
- The device is flashing green for a few seconds during setup: your KiddieAlarm is now connecting to your Wifi network. As soon as it’s connected it will flash green, blue and/or red for just a second after which it should go into operational mode again. If it return to flashing blue that means you could not connect the KiddieAlarm to your Wifi. Please check the FAQ for possible causes and fixes.
