The Nebra Indoor Hotspot has a status indicator as shown above.
The Top LED will act accordingly:
- Off - Software has not started yet.
- On - Operating as normal
- Slow Blinking - Bluetooth Pairing is enabled
- Fast Blinking - There is potentially a fault. Please check the diagnostics page.

The Nebra Indoor Hotspot has a button on the back of the unit.
This is used to re-enable Bluetooth pairing on the hotspot, hold the button in for approximately 15 seconds then release to start pairing. The top light should start blinking slowly if successful.
The Nebra Hotspots run customized software to provide high reliability and ensure your units are as up to date as they can be.
Approximately your hotspot will update once a week in an automatic process, we will announce updates via various social media platforms when they happen.
The software is open-source and available on our Helium Miner Software repo on GitHub.
Each unit has a sticker located on the base of the unit.
This includes the following important information:
- FREQ: Frequency of the Unit
- ETH: Ethernet MAC address
- NSER: Nebra Serial Number
- RPI: Raspberry Pi Serial Number
You will require some of this information when linking your unit to our remote management dashboard.
