The following are instructions to Connect your Mizu to the Internet and also add your Mizu to the Kokonaut App

1. Open the bottom enclosure to reveal the battery compartment and remove the Plastic Pull Tab. Place the battery back in the compartment

4. Ensure your Mobile Device's Bluetooth is On. Go to the Kokonaut App > Settings > Connect to Sensor > Mizu and place your Mobile Device next to Mizu. Your Mobile Device will now attempt to connect to your Kokonaut Sensor via Bluetooth (Note: You will get a prompt to Allow Location Services, please Select Allow as this a requirement by both Apple and Google in order to Pair Devices via Bluetooth. Kokonaut does not use this information to track you)


5. If you have successfully connected to your Mizu, a popup titled Mizu Sensor Settings will appear. Click on Connect to Wi-Fi Network. Select your Wi-Fi Router's SSID in the checkbox and input your Wi-Fi Router Password (make sure your keyboard doesn't auto Capitalize the first letter. You can select Show to display the password)

 

6. If Successful, the Yellow light will stop blinking. You will then be redirected to the Add Sensor Page. Give your Mizu a Name and Select the Add Sensor Button

7. You will be redirected to your newly added Sensor Page (charts will appear in the next few hours as data is collected)

8. You can perform another Soft Reset by pressing on the top right button. Light should now blink Green only


 

Change Sensor Parameters

The following are instructions to help you change the Parameters that are set directly in your Mizu. These include Update Frequency (the interval the Sensor sends an update to the Server), and Temperature & Humidity Offset (to help you calibrate and dial in the values better)

1. Press the bottom right button to enable Bluetooth Pairing. Yellow light will blinking continuously

2. Ensure your Bluetooth is On. Go to the App > App Settings > Connect to Sensor > Mizu and place your Mobile Device next to Mizu. Your Mobile Device will now attempt to connect to your Kokonaut Sensor via Bluetooth 

3. If you have successfully connected to your Kokonaut, a popup titled Mizu Sensor Settings will appear. Click on Set Parameters

4. There are a number of parameters that can be set:

  • Update Frequency changes the Interval Mizu pushes an update to the Server (once every 10, 15, 30, 45, and 60 minutes). The longer the Interval the less battery is consumed. Battery lasts from 8 months (at 10 minutes) to 18 months (at 60 minutes).
  • Humidity and Temperature Offset allows you to calibrate the Sensor further (if Mizu is reading 50%H, adding a +5%H offset will result in it reading 55%H)
  • Heater removes any excess condensation that is in the Sensor Component and improves Humidity accuracy (notably in cold environments). However, Temperature Reading accuracy is reduced.
