The LifeSmart smart station can support up to a maximum of 500 devices, but to ensure the best user experience, we suggest the number of connected devices is no more than 100. Under normal circumstances, this is more than enough to fully support an entire home.
Many smart devices can be paired with your smart station, such as smart plugs, cameras, environ-mental sensors, etc., and they can all be controlled via the LifeSmart app.
An individual camera can only be added to one LifeSmart account and the camera can be shared with other accounts. But those accounts needs to be authenticated by you before they can view your camera. The access authentication can be set in ‘Manage Network’ under your own account setting.
The camera can work independently without a smart station. After adding the camera to your LifeSmart account, you can view and control the camera remotely. But it cannot be triggered by other smart device if it is not connected to the smart station.
If the motion sensor is fully charged, it shows the value when testing RSSI. Otherwise, it doesn’t responsd to the command when its power source is battery.
Centigrade (℃) for temperature.
Relative humidity (RH) for humidity. Relative humidity is the ratio of the current absolute humidity to the highest possible absolute humidity (which depends on the current air temperature).
Illuminance is a relative value measured by feedback data from the light sensor. It is defined as a reference data for illuminance without a unit.
The environment sensor has two operational modes:
- When it is charged, it submits the data in real time. But is affected by the battery charge, the measured temperature value is 1 or 2 higher than the power saving mode.
2. When the power source is battery, the environmental sensor works in power saving mode and submits measured data once. It submits the measured data once every 5 mins if the ambient data stays the same.
If the smart station hasn’t received the measured data for one hour from the environment sensor, it considers the sensor as disconnected.
If the space between sensor magnet and sensor is smaller than 1cm, the door/window sensor acts as closed, or it is detected as open.
Door/window sensor has a battery inside and doesn’t need to be plugged in when it works.
When its voltage is lower than 3.8V, please connect the sensor to the smart station, computer or power adaptor with USB line to charge the battery inside. It always takes 6 to 8 hours to be fully charged. It has an overcharge protection mechanism which prevents overcharging the battery.
Door/window sensor uses a pair of magnets and sensor. The field’s strength varies with the space between the magnet and sensor, this can be used to detect open/closed status of the window and door, send a feedback message of the status and act as the trigger of a smart link.
It can detect a movement within a 120-degree coverage field and range up to 3 meters around the motion sensor.
When the motion sensor detects a movement, it sends a feedback in real time. After detection, it will keep the status of detection for one minute and will then begin to detect for another movement in order to not set off the smart link frequently.
When the voltage of the motion sensor is below 2.7V, it may be in an unstable operational status. Please charge it in time.
When the motion sensor is connected to the smart station, there may be an interference which causes the fault to trigger positively.
The motion sensor can be interfered with by source of heat and light. Please be careful of the ambience (like heater, air conditioner, sunshine and light) when locating the sensor to prevent the fault positives caused by the evident temperature change.
