This article describes what the different blinking patterns of the XDK mean and what is the reaction to it if an error occurs.
The Bosch XDK 110 sensor kit is a freely programmable sensor whcih provides 8 different measurements. For the TeamViewer IoT starter kit it is programmed to send all to the TeamViewer IoT agent which then are visible and usable in the TeamViewer IoT solution.
The follwing measurements are possible and shown in the TeamViewer IoT cloud:
- 3-axis accelerometer
- 3-axis gyroscope
- 3-axis magnetometer
- Accoustic noise sensor
- Air humidity sensor
- Air pressure sensor
- Temperature sensor
- Light sensor
- Vibration (derived from 3-axis accelerometer)

Attaching other sensors to the GPIO pins
The XDK sensor is freely programmable and also supports that other devices are attached to it. This requires a new program written for the XDK. The instruction on how to do this can be found in the XDK community.
Note: To attach new devices to the starter kit and the TeamViewer IoT solution, TeamViewer in general recommends to attach additional devices directly to the gateway instead of adding them to the sensor.
The battery lifetime of the XDK sensor is up to 24 hours depending on environmental conditions like temperature.
The XDK has 4 LEDs on the top side. Each indicates a different status:
LED Meaning Green Charging indicator (lights on when the XDK is connected to a power source and the internal battery is charging) Yellow Flashes every time when sensor data is transmitted to the gateway. Orange Blinking while it tries to connect to the gateway Red
Blinking while the XDK is connecting to the Teamviewer IoT service
Lights on when it is connected
Position of the LEDs
Pattern Meaning and action No LED is on The battery is empty, please connect it to a power source with a micro USB cable
Green LED is off, but the power source is connected The battery is fully charged
Orange LED is constantly blinking Check if the gateway is powered
Check if with another device (e.g. smartphone or laptop) the Wifi network "TV_Starter_Kit" is available. If yes restart the XDK, if not move closer to the gateway or restart it.
Red LED is lighting, yellow LED not flashing
No data is received from this XDK on the dashboards
Restart the XDK
