Sensor Settings

The ‘Sensor Settings’ page gives you control over an individual sensor that has been added to Ruuvi Station. In ‘Sensor Settings’ you are able to:

  • Choose a background image
  • Name sensors
  • Set limits for Alerts and activate or deactivate them
  • View and copy any sensor’s MAC address
  • Correct offsets
  • Update firmware
  • Remove sensor

Background Image

Every individual Sensor Card can be customized to show a unique background image. You can choose from a collection of default images by tapping the recycle icon or upload your own image by selecting the camera symbol.

User images can be uploaded from ‘Camera’ or from ‘Gallery’. Please note that Ruuvi Station will crop any image to fit into the app background.

We recommend using portrait images that blend nicely into the background, but any kind of standard .jpg, .png, or .gif image may be used. Ruuvi Station app does not support .gif animations or video file formats to be used as backgrounds.

Name

Ruuvi Station will name all new sensors according to sensor ID, but you are able to name them freely just by tapping on the ‘Name’ field and adding a preferred name.

Alerts

Ruuvi Station alerts are displayed in two locations within the Ruuvi Station app: an alert will trigger a notification to be displayed as ‘Notification Message’ and an Alert icon will be displayed on any individual sensor Card to indicate the specific sensor, which has triggered the alert.

All alert types can be set to ‘enabled’ or ‘disabled’ individually by checking or unchecking the checkbox on the right side of any individual alert.

Alert types and limits:

Temperature

Temperature alerts will be triggered if a value is recorded outside the selected range. Operating range can be set anywhere between -40 and +85 (Celsius) or -40 and +185 (Fahrenheit), respectively.

Relative air humidity

Humidity alert will be triggered if a value is recorded outside the selected range. Operating range can be set anywhere between 0 and 100.

Air pressure

Air pressure alert will be triggered if a value is recorded outside the selected range. Operating range can be set anywhere between 300 and 1,100.

RSSI (Received Signal Strength)

RSSI alert will be triggered if a value is recorded outside the selected range. Operating range can be set anywhere between -105 and 0 (dBm).

Movement

Movement alert will be triggered when a change has been recorded in any of the accelerometer’s 3-axis.

Other settings

Offset correction

If your Ruuvi sensors are displaying a bit inaccurate information you may calibrate it. To learn more about calibrating, check our video post about the subject. How to calibrate your hygrometer or humidity sensor?

If you find your sensor to be inaccurate, you can correct its values in these settings.

MAC address

Ruuvi sensor broadcasts a unique MAC address, which is shown in this field as a reference. Tap the address to copy it to clipboard.

Update firmware

You can update your sensors firmware to be up to date here. If the App does not find your current firmware version, you should update the sensor. Updating requiers you to push the button or buttons depending on the model inside the sensor. To press the buttons, you must take the top of the sensor.

Remove this sensor

Selecting ‘Remove this sensor’ will remove the sensor card and all related data from Ruuvi Station.
