Mount

  • To remove the mount plate, loosen the mount plate screws and twist the sensor housing counter-clockwise. Lift the sensor housing vertically off the base plate and set aside.
  • Use the provided mounting template to mark wall mount holes. For a junction box mount, use the mounting template to determine the correct hole pattern
  • For best performance, mount the sensor on a ceiling, 8ft above the ground. Avoid windows, vents and other sources of accelerated air circulation. The maximum detection range for air quality is to 6 to 8 ft from the sensor

Anchoring

  • For Solid wall material like wood or metal, drill 1/8 in inch pilot holes. Drive mounting screws directly into the pilot holes
  • For drywall, drill 1/4 inch holes. Insert plastic anchors into holes and drive mounting screws into anchors
  • To secure the sensor housing, place it over the mount plate screws and twist counter-clockwise. Tighten the mount plate screws with a Phillips screwdriver
  • Plug in the sensor. The status LED will turn orange to indicate the sensor has power. the LED will turn blue to indicate the sensor is active

Secure

  • Gently pull the cable through the through-hole so it has some slack, but will not interfere with the top cover
  • To secure the sensor, align the top shell security holes with the baseplate and place the top shell back into its original position. Tighten the security screws using the provided T10 security torx screwdriver
  • Remove the protective film
