Colours of the Monty Monitor rainbow 

Monty Monitor has various light colours and patterns to indicate what mode the monitor is in. These are all the colours that your monitor will show and what they mean. 

The light will show on the top tip of the module just above where the Monty branding is.

Flashing blue

While in the Monty Mobile app, you will be prompted to connect your Monty Monitor. After clicking through the checkpoints, the monitor will emit steady flashing blue light every 2-3 seconds from the top tip of the module. This light indicates that your monitor is ready to connect to your smartphone. Unless other states are occurring, the monitor should always flash blue. 

Solid blue

After successfully pairing your smartphone and monitor, a solid blue light will appear to let you know that the connection is stable. 


The Monty Monitor battery should last around a month on a full charge. When charging time comes, place the module of the monitor on the wireless charging pad and a solid yellow light will emit from the top tip while it charges. 


When your monitor has reached full charge, the yellow charging light will change to green. Now you can place your Monty Monitor back in the compost to collect more data!

Pink and 3 white flashes

If your monitor has gone completely flat and you see a pink light followed by three white flashes while it's on the charging pad, this means that the monitor is resetting for full performance. 


If you’re receiving a red light, there is unfortunately an issue with your monitor. Please contact us for instructions and we will guide you through the troubleshooting steps.
