iSTAR Pulsar is controlled via the iSTAR Pulsar Mobile App running on a compatible mobile device - see this article for further details on obtaining this. In order to communicate between the two devices, a user must first connect them via Wi-Fi as follows:
1. Ensure iSTAR Pulsar device powered up with mode switch to the Right, and in "ready" status (2 solid Green status LEDs)
Further information on powering iSTAR Pulsar may be found here in this user manual.
