If you have a MESH Hub status board, setup is easy. Attach the MESH Hub status board to your Raspberry Pi and turn the Raspberry Pi On. Then proceed to the Hub setup after approximately two minutes.  If the status LED is green and blinking slowly, it means the MESH Hub is ready for setup. The meaning of the status LED is as follows:
