To know whether your NotiFYI Hub has a good cell connection, first make sure the blue LED light on your NotiFYI Hub is on solid. A flashing blue LED means the cell connection is not established. You may need to move the Hub to a new location to establish a good cell connection.
If your new accessory doesn’t work after the initial set up is complete (see "How do I set up my NotiFYI?"), check the following items.
1. If your accessory shows a red LED when you press it but you aren't getting any notifications, you may need to test your connection. Make sure the blue LED on your NotiFYI Hub is on solid. A flashing LED means that the cell connection is not established. You may need to move the Hub to a new location to establish a good cell connection.
