TroubleShooting

See also IoTize Studio Output messages and their solutions. See also FAQ for some more general questions.

Why can't my mobile connect to the target via WiFi? The WiFi only accepts one connection at a time.
  1. Check that your computer is not connected (left click on the computer icon).
  2. Check that another device is not connected.
  3. Swipe to the right on your phone and tap Info.
    1. Check that the "Configuration explorer | WiFi Connectivity | SSID" on your mobile, is the same as "IoTized Application | Incoming communication (Wireless) | WiFi" settings. If not, make it.
    2. Check that the "Configuration explorer | WiFi Connectivity | Hostname" on your mobile, is the same as "Studio | Connection to Tap | Socket host name/IP". If not, make it.
  4. Power the target off and on.
  5. Forget the WiFi network on the mobile and reconnect with the correct password.
  6. Connect via NFC or BLE, logon as admin:
    1. Check WiFi is authorized for this device, if not, Authorise WiFi
    2. Reboot the device
If you still can't connect, connect via BLE again, change the WiFi password (see the "How to" guide), reboot and connect using the new password.
Why can't IoTize Studio connect to the target? Connect to your device with Tap manager to see it's current settings.
  1. Check that your computer is connected to the Taps WiFi network.
  2. Check that the "Studio | Connection to Tap" settings match those of the Tap. Defaults are:
    1. Protocol: Socket
    2. Socket hostname: 192.168.4.1.
    3. Service name/Port: 2000
Why is the BLE connection unresponsive ?
  1. Switch on and off the BLE connection in the smartphone general settings.
  2. Unpair the IoTize BLE appliances and rescan for BLE devices.
  3. Check that another device is not connected.
  4. Make sure your smartphone is charged. Using the gateway from your smartphone significantly increases power consumption, especially if you are logging high volumes of data.
  5. If none of the above actions work, switch off your smartphone and restart it.
Why won't my iPhone start Sensor demo?
  • Sensor demo requires iOS 11.0 or newer.
  • NFC\WiFi pairing features need an iPhone 7 or newer, with iOS13 or newer.
  • iPhones XS or newer can also scan NFC tags and launch 'Sensor demo' automatically when scanning a Tap.
Why don't I have any bundles ? You must have changed the Target System / ELF pathname. Either:
  • Uninstall and reinstall IoTize Studio.
  • Change the pathname back to the examples directory <.\Sensor_tem\out\STM32_Sensor.elf> and add some yourself.
Why is Studio stuck "Loading app" in Webview ? The HTML pages are missing some files.
  • Save the project in a user directory where you have full read/write access (maybe not Program Files).
  • Reconfigure/reboot/publish as appropriate.

What are the factory reset values?

WiFi password: ABCD1234

WiFi network: TAP_

IP number: 192.168.4.1

Service name/Port: 2000

Network mode: Access Point

SSID: TAP

Why can't I configure my Tap ? Someone must be using the app on your Tap: Close the app.
Why won't Tap Manager create a socket relay connection ?
  1. Cheeck the PC and the mobile are both connected to the same (relay) network.
  2. Force off Tap Manager and setup the relay again.
  3. Click on the Socket and change the port number.
