N1 units should arrive with batteries installed. If there is a plastic pull tab sticking out from the front of the unit, please pull the tab out to reconnect the batteries and restore power to the unit during the set-up process.
The power status can be checked by pressing either of the buttons on the side of the unit. While pressing the button, look at the LED indicator on the top of the unit making sure the it flashes green/amber.
- If the indicator does not flash, check that the plastic pull tab has been removed.
- If it has been removed, open the case to confirm 2 CR2450 are installed properly. The flat side with a "plus" (+) symbol should be visible.
- If the batteries are install properly, and the indicator will still not flash when the button is pressed, the batteries likely need to be replaced.
Joining the Network
Power on the device to search for the network:
- On detection of a compatible network, the LED indicator will turn green for five (5) seconds; otherwise, the LED indicator will remain off.
- During the first two minutes after powering on, the device will check for a network every 15 seconds.
- After the first two minutes: the N1 will check for a network every 15 minutes.
If the device does not connect within the first two minutes, check to make sure a K1 Gateway is within range and powered on with all LED indicators glowing. Please reach out to Kairos if the device continues to not connect.
- Pressing the button once causes the device to check its status with the network:
- The LED indicator will flash green if a report is successfully sent to the network
- The LED indicator will remain off if the device does not receive a response from the network.
- Pressing and holding for five (5) seconds causes the LED indicator flashes green 20 times causes the device to turn off and restore factory settings. If the indicator does not flash, the operation was unsuccessful.
The N1 remains in a sleep mode to preserve battery life for one (1) hour before sending a message to the network indicating it is still online. If a leak is detected, it wakes up immediately and sends an alarm over the network.
If the N1 has not joined the network, it will continue to try every 15 seconds for a two (2) minute window. After trying for two minutes, the device goes to sleep for 15 minutes before attempting to connect again.
- Use a flathead screwdriver, or similar tool, to remove the battery cover and remove the two CR2450 batteries.
- Replace with a pair of CR2450 batteries, making sure the (+) is visible once installed.
- Follow the steps in the Powering On section to ensure the device is operating.
- Keep the unit dry - rain, various liquids, or moisture build-up may corrode the electronics or short circuits. If the device becomes wet, please remove batteries and allow it to dry completely before restoring the batteries and testing the unit.
- Do not use or store in dusty or dirty areas.
- Do not store in excessive heat or expose to fire. High temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices, destroy batteries, and deform or melt some plastic parts. Batteries can explode under high heat conditions.
- Do not store in excessive cold. There is a risk that, as temperature rises, moisture will form inside and damage the electronics.
- Do not throw, knock, or shake the device. Rough handling of equipment can destroy internal circuit boards and delicate structures.
- Do not wash with strong chemicals or detergents. Any chemicals entering the case can cause corrosion, damaging the housing and/or the electronics.
- Do not apply with paint. Paint could clog contacts and render the device ineffective.
