Turning sensor on or off

The sensor doesn’t have an On/Off switch.  The sensor automatically conserves power when it is not in use.

 

  • Standby Mode – occurs when the sensor is motionless for 30 seconds. The LED will start blinking again with a light touch.
  • Sleep Mode – occurs when the sensor is motionless for over one minute.
  • On Mode – to wake the sensor, hold the bat with the sensor pointing to the ground for two seconds, and then point the sensor towards the sky. The LED will then resume blinking.

 

The flashing LED of the sensor

The sensor displays different colors to communicate different messages.

 

  • Green LED – The sensor is awake, charged and ready to capture a metric.
  • Amber LED – The sensor is awake, charged and ready to capture a metric.
  • Red LED – The sensor battery is low and should be charged.
  • No LED – When sensor stops blinking it is in a standby mode or sleep mode.

 

 

The three different modes of the sensor

 

The highly accurate advanced 3D motion capture sensor works in three different modes while it captures, analyzes and displays your actions.

  2. Online Mode – The sensor is connected to the app and the metrics are displayed in real-time.
  3. Video Mode – Using the Smart Video Capture feature allows you to record your action and create the video of your highlighted actions which are stored in the app.
