Diagnosing & Troubleshooting your Hub

Frontpoint's advanced technology and intelligent features enable your system to identify issues and deliver troubleshooting steps right to you through the Frontpoint app, automatically.

Issues identified by your system are called trouble conditions. When a trouble condition is discovered, your system jumps into action to help you diagnose and troubleshoot the problem all on your own.


How to diagnose an issue 

When an issue is identified, your system takes several actions automatically to help you diagnose the problem:

1) The Hub's LED alternates between blue and the current system status.

    • The Hub will flash blue until the trouble condition is resolved.  
    • The Hub can tell you the current trouble condition- press and release the button on the back of the Hub and it will announce the issue.


2) A notification is sent from the Frontpoint app alerting you of a trouble condition

3) An Issues menu appears at the top of the Frontpoint app  



How to troubleshoot a trouble condition 

To troubleshoot your system we provide specific steps accessed through your smartphone on the Frontpoint app.
