What are LINKA's LED Lights saying?

LINKA's LED is the best way to figure out the state of your LINKA lock. Here, we'll go through each light that you will see on your LINKA. 


When LINKA is unlocked and there is no LED, it means your LINKA is asleep. To wake up your LINKA, press the power button once. You will see a red light.


Blinking Blue

After you wake up your LINKA, the LED will have a blue blinking light. It is now in discoverable mode. This means that the LINKA app on your phone will be able to find and connect to your lock using bluetooth. Your LINKA will be in discoverable mode for 90 seconds before going back to sleep.




Solid Yellow 

When you are pairing your LINKA app to your lock, the LED will have a solid yellow light. This process should take less than 10 seconds. If the yellow light stays for more than 20 seconds, please visit our “Connection Troubleshooting” page.




Blinking Green 

After you have paired with your lock, the LED will blink green. Your app will also say “Connected”. Now, you will be able to lock, unlock, and control your LINKA with your phone.
