Each notch has a physical button that can perform multiple functions. The button can turn the notch on and off, initiate recording or be used with the firmware update feature.

Turn On Your Notch
Turn On Your Notch

Take one of your notches and lightly press on its top – or squeeze it with two fingers until you feel a soft “click.” The LED of the notch will blink white. It’s on!

To turn off the notch, long-press the button.

Important! Do not use extra force when pressing the notch’s button. In case a device does not turn on, place it back to the charger and wait for it to charge.

Pairing notches

Pairing grants a license to your notch devices for use with the dedicated application.

Every Notch module needs to be paired to a smartphone before use. You only need to pair your notches once per application, unless you use several Notch applicatinos at the same time. Pairing Notches required Internet connection.

Pairing notches is easy:

  1. Turn on one of your notches
  2. Go to My Notches section in the App and tap the “Pair” button
  3. Wait for a notification from the app that pairing is complete
  4. Turn off the paired notch device
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 for each of your notches.

There is no limit for the number of paired devices, however thre is a technical limit to how many devccices you can connect and use simultaneously. The recommended stable maximum is 18 notches.

If you have trouble pairing the notches, make sure only one notch is turned on while pairing. Depending on the network connection and specifics of the particular smartphone it may take several attempts to pair a notch. If you encounter any errors during the pairing process try resetting the bluetooth and wifi (turn on/off) of your smartphone / tablet.
