ORBnext: Device did not connect


I’m currently trying to Connect to my ORBnext directly via Electric Imp App. Not sure, whether this is possible or not. I did successfully clear the device settings with the app, but when I try to setup the device, it does say, that the “Device did not connect”.

Once I start the setup process via BlinkUp! the device starts to flash the green light for a couple of seconds. After that, the LED goes off. Around 80 seconds later, the Electric Imp app says, that it wasn’t able to connect. Is there a way to manage the ORBnext via Electric Imp application?

Thanks in advance,


I believe you need to ask ORBnext to unbless your device if you want it to appear as a developer device (so you can deploy your own code to it).


Thank you, I’ll try that. :slight_smile:
