How do I put the sensor into operation?

Updated 3 months ago by camille

We're here to help you set up your sensor. Thus, here the first steps with your new Motion:

Step #1 - Wake the Motion up

When you receive your Equisense Motion or Motion S, it is in extended standby mode. To wake it up, simply plug your sensor into a power outlet using the charger or into your computer using the USB cable. The LED indicator of your sensor will light up.

We adise you to fully charge your sensor before using it. This will take about 2 hours. When plugging the sensor to a power outlet the LED will turn orang, showing that it is charging! When the LED turns green, the sensor is fully charged.

Step #2 - Connect the Sensor to your account

Now you can connect the Motion or Motion S Sensor to your account.

Open the Equisense App, go to "parameters" and click on "connect". If it is your first connexion, your smartphone will look for available sensors. Click on your sensor. The App will probably ask you to turn on your Bluetooth and location. A popup then appears to let you know everything went well. You're connected :) The LED light will turn blue. 

The pop-up invites you to update your sensor, this is the 3rd step.

Step #3 - Install the updates

Before starting to use your Equisense Motion or Motion S Sensor, it is essential to install a first update of the system (firmware). A brand new sensor cannot record a session: no data will be calculated.

At this stage, the LED light must be blue, showing that it is well connected to your mobile device.

The sensor update may take several minutes could and use up the battery. Make sure that your Motion and your telephone are both fully charged before launching the update.

Update instructions:

  1. Make sure that your phone is connected to the internet
  2. Open the Equisense app and connect to your sensor via Bluetooth
  3. Make sure that your phone is connected to the internet
  4. Once your Motion is connected, a pop-up will appear saying an update is available. Press on "start the update"
  5. Your Motion’s LED indicator will turn purple and rapidly blink during the update.
  6. Keep your Motion and your mobile device near each other during the update.
  7. As soon as the update is done, the LED indicator will turn red for a few seconds while re starting and then turn green or blue!
It is possible that the up date goes on two times! So don't worry if the pop up comes up a second time. Just re do the up date :)

In oder to do this first update, it is important that your App is as well up to date! This is done automatically if you've just dowloaded it.

Other ways to do the update

It is still possible to do the update even after you've closed the popup add. Just make sure you sensor is well connected in order to do so, press on the + "record" button" located at the bottom of the screen. Press on the 'motion session" button et wait for the App to connect to the sensor. When done, the LED turns blue

Now close this screen through the cross located on the high right corner and go back to "parameters" and "sensor". From there, click on your sensor and then click on "update".

Step #4 - Use the Motion!

Your Motion is now ready and can be used at all times!
