Red light on hub and cutting out

Joining in


I'm posting here as I don't have the time to spent hours on the phone/online chat in half term with an autistic toddler.

Our VM hubs has a permanent red light and although a strong signal it drops out alot.

It's not hot or in sunlight. It's well ventilated too. 

I've unplugged it several times for 20-30mins.

I've done the reset via the VM website and with the pinhole. I've checked the area status and the connection via the VM connect app too.

Anymore suggestions? Or can someone from VM get in contact please.

Ta! X

If the red LED persists after a pinhole reset, the Hub should be swapped out. This red LED is the overheat warning and should be working correctly. If you wait here a couple of days a VM Mod should pick this up and discuss directly with you.

Hi there @Ladygogo84 

Thank you so much for your post and welcome back to the community forums, it's great to have you here. 

I am so sorry that you have faced this issue with your service and thank you again for posting and trying the reset as recommended. As the light has persisted I do think it would be best we arrange for an engineer to come and take a look via a private message.

I will pop you a PM across now, please keep an eye out for the envelope at the top of your screen alerting you to a new message.
