LEDs on Bolt and Bridge


Can we get an explanation on what the LEDs mean on Bolt and Bridge. I have noticed that they can be a different color. I also noticed a LED on Bolt that I didn’t know existed. I assume that they mean something.

I didn’t see anything in the manual or on the support portion of the site.


Hey there. I don’t work for Lockitron, but I can share what I know. It’s not 100%.

Bridge LED Behaviour:
Green (blinking): Powering on, connecting to network.
Blue (on): Bluetooth connection open with Lockitron

Bolt LED Behaviour:
Green (on for 5s): Power on
Blue (on): Connected to Bridge or App via Bluetooth
Blue (blinking): Updating firmware


@Bob - good feedback; @anthonylavado has some great info here. One more case:

I see BLUE on the Bridge when the Bolt has been recently activated, but after some period of time (timeout value?) there are NO lights displayed. Sure would be nice to have a light on the Bridge that indicates that the WiFi connection is active. (e.g. many times I can see that my router is actively connected to the Bridge, but I don’t see Bridge Diagnostics on the Settings page). I don’t see sufficient diagnostics from Lockitron to confirm that I have both good Bolt to Bridge Bluetooth and Bridge to Wifi connection, or the logs needed to follow-up when things go wrong.)
