Overview

In order to have access to this menu item, you will first need to link your Helium account with the Bobber app. Much like the Helium App, the Bobber hotspots tab displays a location map, the Hotspots Settings section (gear icon), as well as a general health status (Online or Needs Attention). The settings provide access to updating the location and WiFi network, as well as a Hotspots diagnostic report if needed. Also familiar to users will be the Earnings and Witnesses displays.

Adding a Hotspot

Select the "+" icon located on the top right of your screen. You will then be prompted to select the gateway or hotspot that you are trying to onboard. Upon making your selection follow the onscreen instructions to complete the onboarding of your hotspot or gateway.

IMPORTANT: A user DOES NOT have to login to the Bobber app to link their Helium Account and add a hotspot, however, they will not have access to any of the hotspot management or remote troubleshooting features found within the Web Dashboard. 

Unique to the Bobber App

Status Display

Access your miner’s real-time LED status, gap, sync status, CPU temperature, network status, and other important data.  

Diagnoser

A shortcut to the Bobcat Diagnoser will be available within the hotspots tab. Simply select the stethoscope icon located to the left of the Hotspots Settings section (gear icon). 

NOTE: While a key feature of the Diagnoser is that it does not require bluetooth pairing, it is a local diagnoser, meaning that you need to be on the same LAN as the hotspot to access the interface.
