Pairing the MimioTeach and MimioHub

Cameron.Nichols's picture

The light on my MimioTeach is an amber color and I can't get it to calibrate at all. Any suggestions?

Looks like you need some help with pairing your MimioHub with your MimioTeach. Here are the steps you will need to follow in order to sync these two units (Make sure your MimioHub is connected to your computer)

1. Open Mimio Settings in the software. Go to Classroom Devices.

2. You will see the MimioHub listed. (if it’s not there, the MimioHub is not in a USB port)

3. Hold down the status light (button) for about 5-7 seconds. It will start flashing amber and you will see MimioTeach appear on your list of Classroom Devices. It will say “available.”

4.Select the device and click Connect.

5.The Status light on the MimioTeach will turn solid green.
