Button usage

Please only use your fingers, or a ballpoint pen to press the buttons. Don't use sharp items like a needle!

Power button

You can turn on/off the device by pressing the power button for a few seconds. The device reboots if the power button is held more than about 7 seconds.

If the openSPOT3 is turned on, then the power LED will blink white while the power button is held. The blink interval indicates how much time is left until the power button press is confirmed. Confirmation is indicated by two short white power LED blinks and an audible beep (if the beeper is enabled). There will be no confirmation if the power button is held more than about 7 seconds (hard reset).

If you press the power button for a short time, then the power LED will immediately signal the current charge level.

Note that about 5-10 seconds have to pass after turning off the device before it can be turned on again.

Press the Power button 3 times quickly and the openSPOT2 will beep the letter P followed by the currently active profile number and the profile's name in Morse code.

Wi-Fi button

Hold the Wi-Fi button for at least 3 seconds to switch the openSPOT3 between Wi-Fi access point (AP) mode and normal mode.

If the openSPOT3 is turned on, then the Wi-Fi LED will blink white while the Wi-Fi button is held. The blink interval indicates how much time is left until the Wi-Fi button press is confirmed. Confirmation is indicated by two short white status LED blinks and an audible beep (if the beeper is enabled).

  • In AP mode, the openSPOT3 broadcasts it's own Wi-Fi network called openSPOT3 AP. The status LED is pulsating white in access point (AP) mode and solid white if a Wi-Fi client is connected. You can use this mode to set the openSPOT3's Wi-Fi networks. See the First steps section for more information.
  • In normal mode, the openSPOT3 is trying to connect to one of the Wi-Fi networks which have been set on the Network page, Wireless settings section (or using the Initialization setup in AP mode).

    If there's no Wi-Fi network set on the Network page (Wireless settings section) then the openSPOT3 automatically switches to AP mode.

Hold the Wi-Fi button for 30 seconds to perform a full factory reset. In this case all configuration profiles will be cleared.

Press the Wi-Fi button 3 times quickly to enable/disable powersaving.
