Quick start

Step 1

In order to set up the Hotspot, you need to download the phone app and to follow the next steps. Normally, you start with ”Add a new Hotspot”. Download the Helium App directly from the App Store or Google Play by scanning the code below:

Step 2

Assemble the miner with the provided antenna.

Step 3

When you finish setting up the antenna, subsequently, plug in the adaptor to make sure the power is connected with the miner. As you can see here, please choose to use an internet cable (but you can use the WIFI also if you want) and there is also an antenna and the power cable. Once you do this you can see different lights on the device. First it is blue, if it is on, it means the Wi-Fi is connected with the device. Second it is Red, It is called LoRa TX light. The Miner is sending LoRa data when it becomes red color. Third one is LoRa RX signal light. When the miner is receiving data from other hotspot, the light will turn to green. The orange one is the synchronizing status indicator, the process of synchronization is done when you see it’s on. Last one is the system working light, it will be white when the miner is working smoothly.

Step 4

Ready to configure with the Helium Appoint takes a few minutes for the miner to set up by following the paring guidance via the App.

Step 5

Check through the App to assure the miner is connected, I must say that the app is easy to use, not over-complicated, and if you follow the instructions, you will have your Hotspot set up in no time. If so, your journey of mining with Helium is on.https://heltec.org
