FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How do I set it up?
Wappsto:bit specifications / datasheet
I don't see my Wappsto:bit in devices nearby on the Wappsto APP

Make sure your Wappsto:bit is turned on and the status LED is on. If the LED light is not on, try using a different power source.

If the LED is on, it may already have been setup to a Wi-Fi and should be reset.

Resetting your Wappsto:bit, means unclaiming it from Wappsto and removing current connectivity setup.

First, power on the Wappsto:bit
Then, press the brown button found on the right side of the Wappsto:bit button.

The LED will start blinking white, keep the button pressed down. Once the blinking stops, it has been reset.

When I scan my Wappsto:bit QR code, it says "You don't have permission to access this."

This is because your Wappsto:bit is claimed to another Wappsto account than the one you are currently using.

Reset your Wappsto:bit to claim it with another account.

Your free Wappsto account gives you access to the Wappsto APP and Wappsto.com
Your account is limited to a certain amount of devices and data usage, but it’s more than enough for personal projects 🙂

How do I switch between Wi-Fi and NB-IoT?

First, make sure you have a Wappsto:bit NB-IoT or NB-IoT+ that supports NB-IoT conneciton and a working sim.
Then you just switch the position of the jumper on the pin headers as shown in the images below.

1)

 2)

Wappsto:bit in NB-IoT mode (red and black pin)
How come I’m not getting GPS info?

Take a look at the example code in the ressources area above, and keep in mind that only the NB-IoT+ product is equipped with GPS.

Why doesn't my sensor work

Keep in mind that some external sensors are 5V sensors, but the voltage provided form the Wappsto:bit is 3.3V, so you’ll need an alternative setup to power 5V sensors.

My data model is not loading correctly to Wappsto

If your micro:bit is inserted in your Wappsto:bit and both are powered, you might experience some difficulties.
This can arise because of a so-called ‘common ground’ issue. Just take your micro:bit out of the Wappsto:bit and try again and it should load just fine 🙂
