Neuron sensors quick-start

It’s easy to get started with Neuron wireless IoT sensors. Follow these simple instructions to get your things on the Internet in just a few minutes.

Step 1: Download the app EW Neuron Scan from Google Play (iOS app under way). You can also use the Neuron dashboard.

Step 2: Log in with the username and password received from us.

Step 3: Register the sensor(s) to your user in the app using the QR code (or type in the serial number). Give the sensor a name so you can recognise it in the app. For example ‘Temperature cold storage 2’.

Step 4: Plug in the Neuron Gateway. If you have the Ethernet version, you will have to connect to the Internet using the enclosed Ethernet cable. If you have the GSM version, all you have to do is connect it to the power grid and it will immediately start sending data from the sensors online.

Step 5: Place the sensors where you want them with tape, cable ties or magnets. Under ideal circumstances, the sensors have a wireless range of about 1500 metres to the gateway, but the range is reduced by walls and other obstacles.

Step 6: You’re up and running! Measurement data from the sensors is being delivered and is stored in our cloud. You can access it immediately in the app or online. All measurements are stored and can be analysed in our system or downloaded and studied in more detail using other software.

Step 7: If you want to set up alarms, the simplest way is to use the app by selecting the relevant sensor and then ‘edit sensor’ on the bottom right. Online, you log into Neuron Analytics, click on the relevant sensor in the list on the left and then the yellow bell. You can choose to receive the alarm via SMS, e-mail or right on your screen.
