Your first install was not successful, and you want to try again

Firstly, you must delete the partial install of the trap from the flyDetect Web App.

  • Log into the flyDetect Web App at www.flydetect.net using your log in details.
  • Navigate to the ‘Clients/Sites’ tab located on the left side menu.
  • Click ‘> View’ on the Client/Site where the trap is located.
  • Find the trap listed which you want to attempt to reinstall and click the pencil ‘Edit’ icon
  • Click ‘Delete flyDetect’ located in the top right corner of the page.
  • Retype the name/location of the flyDetect to authorise the delete and press ‘Confirm’.

Next, you should ensure your mobile phone is no longer paired with the flyDetect trap.

  • Ensure the flyDetect trap has been unplugged and powered down for at least 90 seconds before continuing.
  • Plug in and switch on the flyDetect trap.
  • Wait for at least 90 seconds, and then press and hold the white connectivity button on the underside of the trap for 10 seconds.
