Photon CLI connection problem

I have a problem with CLI in the Particle Setup (see image).
Does anyone have any idea what I’m doing wrong?

First, was your device blinking blue at that time?

But you can break down the setup magic into individual steps which might make things easier to debug

  1. ensure the device is blinking blue
  2. run particle identify and note down the Device ID
  3. run particle serial wifi and avoid any automatic stuff, but enter your WiFi data manually
  4. make sure the device does change into breating cyan state
  5. run particle device add <yourNotedDeviceID>
  6. check in Web IDE that your device has been added to your devices list and change its name there

If one of the steps fails, feel free to ask again


Thanks, I’m going to try it!

Did you repeat your setup with Particle CLI again after your Photon is blinking blue (hold setup for 3 sec)?
