There are two options to connect your computer to your hub, through cable or bluetooth.

To connect through cable, all you need to do is plug in the cable to your computer and hub, and they should be connected! This is also the way you charge the hub's battery.

Usually it is preferred to connect through bluetooth, because you can move your robot basically anywhere in a room! That means if you want to see the sensor readings or what a variable's value is, while the robot is moving, it is way easier to connect through bluetooth. In the video we have shown you how to do it. The main things you need to do are:

  1. Turn on the hub, that is done by pressing and holding the middle button for 1-2 seconds
  2. Turn on bluetooth, that is done by just pressing the bluetooth button
  3. Find your brick and connect to it, that is done in the app and is shown in the video how to get there
