Pairing and Unpairing

Updated

Bolt 6 devices purchased as a set (TX and RX) are paired by default, requiring no additional configuration. Bolt 6 devices purchased separately need to be paired using the device's front panel (OLED) menu, Bolt Manager, or the Bolt App. To pair your transmitter with multiple receivers, you will need to use either Bolt Manager or the Bolt App. NOTE: Before starting either pairing process, ensure that both the transmitter and receiver have the same firmware version and have Bluetooth enabled.


Pairing/Unpairing via the Front Panel

TO PAIR: 

  1. Using the Menu Joystick, navigate to the Pair menu on both the transmitter and the receiver.
  2. Select Pair to begin the pairing process. The transmitter will begin scanning for a receiver within range and automatically pair to the receiver.
  3. Once paired, the front panel will indicate whether or not Pairing is successful.

TO UNPAIR: 

  1. Navigate to the Unpair menu on either the transmitter and the receiver.
  2. Select the transmitter/receiver you want to unpair. If you have multiple devices paired, you can select Unpair All.

PAIRING TIPS

If you’re having trouble getting units to pair, we recommend keeping the transmitter and receiver six feet apart when pairing (if antennas are connected). Without antennas, they can be closer. Keep all other RF devices nearby turned off or out of range to ensure the transmitter and receiver are only detecting each other. To eliminate any chance of interference, perform the Wired Pairing process via Bolt Manager.

Switch TX (RX only)

Bolt 6 receivers can pair with up to four transmitters at a time. Switch TX allows you to quickly switch from one paired transmitter's camera feed to another paired transmitter. This feature is especially useful in multi-camera situations when you need to switch to a different camera's view mid-shoot, without having to perform the pairing process every time. The Switch TX feature can be found in the main menu. NOTE: The transmitter(s) need to first be paired with the receiver.
