In this guide, I will explain the different Gosund Smart Plug light behaviours along with steps to troubleshoot it.
Blue Light Blinking Rapidly
When you turn on your Gosund Smart Plug for the first time, it will blink blue. It indicates that the plug is in pairing mode.
- To complete the pairing process, open the Gosund app on your smartphone and tap on “Add Device”.
- Select “Socket (Wi-Fi)” from the list.
- Confirm that your plug is blinking blue and then proceed.
- Enter your Wi-Fi network details and tap on “Confirm” button.
Note that Gosund Smart Plug only supports 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi channel only.
Though most home Wi-Fi are 2.4 GHz, it is good to check your router and confirm that before proceeding with configuring your smart plug.
Sometimes, the blue color on Gosund smart plug LED indicator might look like a ‘Purple‘; however, it means the same.
Red Light (Still)
When your Gosund smart plug is successfully connected to your smartphone and Wi-Fi, the blinking blue color will change to red color which will be still (not blinking).
Blue Light (Still)
If the LED indicator has still red color, then it means it is receiving power from the socket, but not in pairing mode.
In that case, you first need to get it to the pairing mode by pressing and holding the power button for 5 to 10 seconds until the blue light starts blinking rapidly.
Red Light but Not Connected
If the LED light on your Gosund Smart Plug is red or blinking red, but the plug is not working or appears disconnected in the app on your smartphone, you will need to reset the plug.
This issue is frequently reported by Gosund smart plug users, and it often occurs after a power outage.
