This page explains some of the common installation steps for all our sensors. There may be other sensor specific installation requirements for some of our sensors that have external parts, like door sensors and water sensors. These instructions can be found on the product pages.

Sensors

We have a growing list of sensors that you can see in the Products section of this documentation. The sensors do not require any configuration before its intended use. Each sensor comes pre-configured with settings you can find on each product page. For example if you bought a temperature sensors then it would be configured as a temperature sensor and have the required hardware.

You may, however, want to change some of the configuration of a sensor, like give it a different Device ID, or change the reporting interval. See the configuration section of the documentation for more details on changing configuration.
