When a Smart Vent powers on, it goes through an initialization sequence where the louvers open and close, and the lights will flash on and off.
If you’re not seeing the lights flash - OR - the louvers don’t move, that’s okay. As long as one happens, the Vent is considered powered on.
If your Smart Vent lights don’t flash - AND - the louvers don’t move, try the following:
- Attach the front battery holder (or leave it on) and remove the back battery holder
- With the batteries in place, reseat the back battery holder and jiggle it around a little to ensure it's fully pushed down in the event that contact isn’t made immediately
- Screw in the back battery holder
If the Vent still doesn't power on, replace the batteries with fresh, new ones.
If none of the above make the lights flash OR the louvers move, then contact Support for help.
