Access point OK - then all red LED


#1

Hi all,

I am trying to get a new IotaWatt running. When I switch it on it works as AP fine. Then, after configuring the WiFi and rebooting the LED is only red, sometimes blinking a bit, but never green. When I switch off the WiFi, the IW works as AP again.

Another IW I bought at the same time works fine at the same network. I changed its device name before setting up the 2nd device.

Can anyone help me?

It sounds as if the IoTaWatt has connected to the WiFi, but has not been able to get the time from the internet. If that is the case, you should be able to connect to it with your browser while the fed is glowing red.

There is a case where it can take a while to set the time on a second or subsequent IoTaWatt. Leave it on for awhile and see if it resolves the time on its own.

Thanks, that may well be it. Just tried an other network and here it seems to work well.
