Verify that the Orca Core is powered on and has sufficient power:

  1. When powered on, a green light will blink on top of the Core. This light will stop blinking after 30 seconds.

  2. Verify that you can see the Orca's WiFi access point via your phone/tablet's WiFi settings. The WiFi is named orca-XXXXXX. Do not attempt to connect manually via WiFi. The Orca app will connect by itself.

An orange light on top of the Orca Core indicates low supply voltage. In this situation, review your power supply.

A red light on top of the Orca Core indicates a critical error. Contact Orca support if this occurs.

Verify that the Orca Core is paired to your active account:

  2. Verify that the Orca Core is listed among your account devices

  3. If the Core is not listed among your devices, check your account email. You may have logged in on a separate account

For iOS devices, verify that you have given Orca permission to discover local networks:

  1. Open your iPhone/iPad settings

  2. Scroll to Orca

  3. Verify all permissions are granted
