Solid white = booting up
A solid white light on your Buoy means that the device is in the process of booting up. This should last no more than twenty seconds.
White, blinking quickly = ready to connect
A quickly blinking white light means your Buoy is ready for you to connect to your WiFi network. To do this, see Connect to Your Home WiFi Network.
White, fading in and out = normal
A white light slowly (once every two seconds) fading in and out means the Buoy is on your network and ready to start tracking your water usage.
Solid red = water is shut off
A solid red light means the Buoy shutoff valve is closed and you have turned off the water to your home. To reopen the valve, see “How do I turn my water back on?”
Red, blinking = no WiFi
A blinking red light means that your Buoy had been communicating with your network, but is having trouble connecting now. This could be because there is a problem with the internet connection at your location, or there is some interference between the WiFi and the Buoy. If other devices using your WiFi are connected and working, contact support.
Buoy’s lights turn off for two reasons: Buoy is up and running and has no information to share (the LED will turn off after about a minute), or Buoy’s battery is out of power.
Press the black button on the side of the Buoy. If a white light starts blinking slowly, your Buoy is fine. If the white light is on and then quickly turns off, you need to charge the battery or check the connection where you've plugged it in.
