The chair sensor is a vibration sensor and should be located on the preferred chair of the person using MySense.
1. The sensor will need to be powered on.
Insert 2 AAA batteries from your MySense box in the sensor. To insert the batteries, remove the cover strip.
To remove the cover strip:
Gently press down on the ridged thumb press located at the top of the sensor
Once pressed you can pull the backplate of the sensor away from the front cover allowing access to the batteries
With the batteries properly in place and the plastic cover strip removed the sensor can be clipped back together
2. Check if the sensor has power by pressing the circle on the front of the sensor firmly. The LED above the button should flash red once.
3. Fit the sensor to your favourite chair.
There are many types of chairs so sensor placement locations vary. The key is to place the sensor where it will easily sense the vibration of someone sitting down without the sensor coming into contact with the person sitting. Good examples include:
Under or to the side of the seat cushion, if it is thicker
Underneath the chair, if it is thinner and more flexible
On the chair back, in the case of a reclining chair
With the sensor placed, you can test it by sitting down and moving around in the chair. This activation will show on the activity graph in "Visualise".
