The Room Sensors report a more accurate to the app as they are installed at chest height and away from heat sources. They can also detect motion in the property to give you access to Footprint Mode for each zone.
- Remove the battery tab from the back of the Room Sensor. Lightly tap the end of the Room Sensor on a hard surface, to ensure that the battery is correctly seated against the contacts inside the Room Sensor.
- Fix the Room Sensor temporarily to the wall using the thick black sticky pad, for the first two weeks. Once the customer is happy with the position they can use the long thin sticky pads provided to stick it to the wall. Alternatively the customer can use the screws provided to fix the Room Sensor to the wall when the final position is decided.
- The golden rules for positioning a Room Sensor are:
- Internal Wall - To stop the Room Sensor from under reading from being on a cold surface.
- Out of Direct Sunlight - Consider if the sun was shining through the window would the Room Sensor be in direct sunlight therefore affecting the temperature it reports.
- Chest Height - The field of vision is 175º left to right and 40º up and down. Position 1.5m from the ground to give the best view and accurate temperature (not the ceiling temperature).
- Facing The Occupants Of The Room - In rooms when people are sitting (e.g. lounges, bedrooms and offices) make sure the sensors are facing the front of the occupants so the sensor can see any movement in the room.
- Often the best position for a room sensors in on an internal wall and next to a light switch.
- Remember to leave the pack of fixings behind with the customer so they can fit the white sticky pad at a later date.
