Bluetooth®

The Bluetooth word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by NeuroMetrix, Inc. is under license.

Communication between the Quell device and the Smartphone is via Bluetooth.

 

Disabling Bluetooth

While all sensitive data transmission is encrypted, Bluetooth functionality can be turned off for increased privacy. If Bluetooth is disabled, then the Quell Relief App will not function, but all other functions of the Quell device will operate normally.

 

To turn off Bluetooth:

  1. Plug the Quell device into the charger/wall outlet,
  2. Click and hold the button on the Quell device for approximately 10 seconds until the one orange and one white LED light up, then release the button.
  3. The Bluetooth module is now disabled.

To reactivate Bluetooth functionality, repeat the above steps. All six LED’s should be lit.
