Sensor installation

To install an AirQ Networks sensor the only thing you need to do is place it. No hardware links are needed. For example you can put a sensor in a freezer, in a cold room etc... At most you may attach it to a surface through the use of flanges.

If you have an EXT family sensor, you have to:

  1. secure the probe to the item that you want to monitor;
  2. link the probe to the sensor.

  • Connect board inputs to all devices you want to monitor;
  • Connect the backup battery to Li-Po battery socket if you have it;

Device pairing

At first installation, dashboard appears empty because you have to pair every device to the control unit.

You have to:

  1. Set control unit in pairing mode;
  2. Pair one or more devices.

In details:

  • From the dashboard, click on "pairing" to go in pairing page;
  • From the pairing page, click on "Start device pairing" in order to put control unit in pairing mode;
  • A time bar will appear: during this time you have to do the pair procedure of the devices, turning on power of your AirQ devices. If the device is AirQ 300 control board, after turn on, the status led will blink rapidly until it is fixed. When led becomes fixed, the device is paired. If the device is a sensor, you simply have to connect the battery. If a device is already on before pairing, off and on again.
