Below is a text version of the video above! This is for those that prefer a laid-out text walkthrough or would like some clarity on some of the points made throughout the video.
The modular design of the Sensedge allows you to replace our sensor modules when needed, without having to go through the traditional (and painful) calibration process.
The standard Sensedge comes with two sensor modules:
the KM-100 and the KM-103.
The KM-100 is the silver sensor module that measures your Particulate Matter - PM2.5
The KM-103 is the gold sensor module that measures your Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC), Temperature, and Relative Humidity. This sensor requires a brief warm-up period, so make sure it is exposed to clean, fresh air during the start-up!
We recommend changing your sensor modules every 1.5 years to main accurate readings
WELL, RESET, and other building certifications typically require annual replacement or calibration - so make sure to check out their requirements for more information!
The CO2 sensor is built directly into the device.
- The CO2 sensor uses an Automatic Baseline Correction, which allows it to self-correct its readings over time, ensuring its accuracy.
To insert a sensor module, remove the device from the back shell and align it with the sensor module bay and press it in - making sure the Kaiterra Logo is facing upwards and the pin connectors are facing inwards. If inserted correctly, the module will click into place - and the sensor status light will flash once.
To remove a sensor module, press in on the left side of the module, unlatching it from the device. Grip onto the sensor module and slowly slide it out of the module bay.
Keep in mind the following:
- Sensor modules can be inserted and removed, whether the device is on or off
- Sensor modules can be placed in any order
- Sensor modules can be placed in either sensor module bay
So you don't have to worry about which sensor goes in which bay, nor do you have to turn the device off when replacing or re-seating your sensor modules.
And that's it! Once your modules are inserted and your device is turned on, you can navigate to the settings tab to proceed with the configuration of your device!
