  • Why won't my sensor/filter sync?

    Follow the instructions provided in the packaging.

    Check to make sure Bluetooth® is enabled on your smart phone device. make sure your mobile phone and your filter sensor are within close range. try syncing again closer to the sensor.

  • This happens when the app is open or in the background. Sensor data is not uploaded if app is deliberately closed. The sensor collects data throughout the day but uploads this data to your mobile device as soon as you are home and within range of the Smart Air Filter (approximately 50 feet). If you are not noticing any updates, ensure your Bluetooth is enabled and your phone and Smart Air Filter are within range.

  • This could mean there is a slight delay from the connection. Don’t worry, as long as all instruction steps are followed, the connection should be made with another try or two. Let our support team know if it doesn’t. The process may go faster if the mobile device is within good cellular signal range or connected to a strong wi-fi signal.

  • This could mean a couple things.

    1. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone.
    2. Make sure the “battery tab” has been removed from the sensor. A signal won’t be sent out to your phone until this battery tab has been removed.
    3. Make sure your phone and your Smart Air Filter are in close proximity to one another.
    4. If all of the steps listed above are being followed, please let our support team know and they will assist you.
