The Cloud Connector has a special mode that lets you see its activity.
To activate this mode, press and hold the bottom half (see figure) of the Cloud Connector’s surface.
When the sensor icon appears after 2 seconds, remove your hand.
In activity mode, the Cloud Connector communicates the following
Sensor Data Received
Each flash of the sensor symbol represents a data packet received from a sensor in close proximity to the Cloud Connector.
Tip: Press a sensor while you are close to the Cloud Connector to see if the Cloud Connector is able to pick up the signal.
Cellular Signal Strength
The dots represent the signal strength to the cellular network. In activity mode the Cloud Connector will show the signal strength even though it is connected through ethernet.
The ethernet or cellular symbols flash according to the network activity. When data is sent to or received from the Cloud the symbol will flash. When connected via ethernet the ethernet symbol will show, when on cellular the cellular symbol will show.
Repeat step 1 and 2 to switch back to normal mode after troubleshooting.
