Add a new sensor


You can add new sensors to a system by going to the system, click the "+Add" tile and Choose "Add sensor" in the menu.
Fill in the sensor ID by either scanning the QR-code or by manually entering it into the field. We recommend to give the sensor an alias, a suitable description and a image of the installed sensor.
You can also add some tags on the sensor as explained in this article: Tags

Add new sensor

Only admin users of the system can add sensors.



Click on "Add sensor" button and you will be taken to the next page where you can either add another sensor or upload the already registered sensor to your system.



You will now be redirected back to the dashboard and the new sensor will appear as a tile next to the gateway.
Newly added sensors needs to be verified in the cloud before they are fully functional. This usually happens instantaneously or within a few minutes.

Verification

For verification to succeed, the sensor needs to send a data packet through a gateway registered to the same system. Make sure the gateway is powered and online, as well as keeping the sensor within range of the gateway.
