Adjusting your adaptor settings to be just right
Not sure which setting does what? See below:
Units: most of us Aussies and New Zealanders will be using Celsius, but if you’d prefer fahrenheit is always an option
temperature range: this is the range from the set temperature which will trigger the adaptor to turn on your appliance. Set a smaller range if you want a very consistent temperature, set a larger range if you want to be a bit more economical in when your appliance turns on.
humidity range: same as temperature range, but for humidity (if you are using the humidify or de-humidify modes)
temperature calibration: the adaptor measures the temperature immediately nearby. Sometimes the room temperature may be lower or higher depending on where the adaptor is, so use this to adjust it depending on whether the adaptor is warmer or cooler than the main room. This can have quite a big impact in larger areas or open floor plan homes.
humidity calibration: same as temperature calibration, but for humidity (if you are using the humidify or de-humidify modes)
turn on delay: this ensures that the device is always off for a minimum amount of time, to protect condenser motors. Check your appliance guide to see if this is a feature you should be using.
alerts: you can set high and low alerts so that if either are met, an alert is sent through the app. This is useful if you have an area where pets, small children or other temperature sensitive items are.
Will it work with my appliances?
The adaptor with temperature, humidity sensor and energy meter works with many different appliances, regardless of their brand or age. To test if your appliance will be controllable with the adaptor follow the steps below:
1. Connect your appliance to a normal power point. Turn the power point on.
2. Adjust the appliance so it is doing what you’d like it to do with Grid Connect (heating/cooling etc.)
3. Without touching the appliance turn it off at the wall and wait for it to power down (some appliances will turn off instantly, others take a few seconds).
4. Turn the power point back on (without touching the appliance).
If after step 4 your appliance went back to heating/cooling then your appliance is compatible with the Grid Connect Smart Adaptor.
