On Hub 2, the pushbutton light indicates the overall water status of the DROP system. When the water is turned on the pushbutton light will be green, and when the water is off the pushbutton light will be orange.
The DROP Link indicator light at the lower-left corner of Hub 2 shows the status of the DROP Link mesh network at a glance. When all devices are connected and communicating normally, this light will be purple. Brief flashes indicate active communication with the devices. If a device is offline, this light will turn orange. When ‘Add Device Components’ mode is active, this light will turn white.
The pushbutton on the front of the Hub has been designed to perform some basic functions. By pressing and holding the pushbutton these functions can be accessed. As you hold the pushbutton, the button color will change for the different functions that are available. The following list explains the functions that are available:
Releasing the button while it is green will turn the DROP system water on, while releasing the button while it is orange will turn the water off.
The button will turn pink. If released during this time frame the Hub will reboot. This can be helpful if you think something just isn’t working right and you want to try a fresh startup to see if it fixes the problem. A reboot takes only a few seconds to complete and is generally not disruptive to any of the normal functions of the system.
Seconds (yellow or blue): If the DROP Hub is connected to a local (blue or green before pressing the button) WiFi network, button color will be yellow. If released during this time frame the Hub will reset and temporarily revert to direct connection WiFi mode. Once in direct connection (WiFi Status blinking yellow with button not pressed) WiFi mode, if button is held again for 7-9 seconds the button color will be blue. If released in this mode the Hub will reconnect to the previous WiFi connection. Switching to direct connection WiFi mode can be helpful if you want to temporarily allow someone to access your Hub, but don’t want to give them access to your local WiFi. This also can be helpful if your WiFi router is no longer available and you need to connect to your DROP system. Finally, it is a way that can be used to connect a Hub to a new WiFi without resetting the Hub.
The button will turn green. If released during this time frame the Hub will reset the app pairing key. This will cause all apps that only have local access to the Hub to be required to be repaired when they attempt to connect next. When the pairing key is reset, a notification will be sent out that the app pairing key has been reset. The local pairing key ensures that a user must have direct physical access to the Hub in order to connect and also ensures that the appropriate users are notified of the app pairing key change. Note: If a user has remote access to this DROP system, through DROP web services, they will not be required to repair their app to the Hub. To control who can remotely access the DROP system go to the “ACCOUNT” page in the app.
