Not online yet: When scanning in a beacon, it may take a minute for the beacon to come online for the first time.
- Ensure the battery is installed in the beacon correctly (battery + side up) and is within range of an online gateway
- Tip: A blue light will briefly flash under the battery when inserted correctly, and can be seen in low-light.
- If you have confirmed the battery is correctly inserted, try installing another battery. If a different battery doesn't work, try replacing the beacon with another one.
- Tip: Check the beacon's metal casing - if the metal portion is loose, it may be causing a loose connection with the battery.
The blue light will flash under the white bottom (best seen in low-light).
Make sure the screw (seen on the left in picture above) is tight, and press the top of the metal down to ensure good contact).
If the beacon is still not coming online after these attempts, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the beacon number (these are found on the top lid of the beacon itself) on the units that are affected.
While we investigate the beacon numbers, we ask that you to test the batteries with a multi-meter to confirm if the battery is dead. More likely than not, the issue will be with the battery rather than the beacon itself, and this will help us determine that.
