Installation:

Your uRADMonitor unit can be mounted both indoors and outdoors where the enclosure offers protection against sun, rain or snow. The unit has a plastic cap fixed in a ring that holds the electronics . The ring comes with a wall mounting support and can be easily attached with only one screw. The sensor opening must face down for open air access. Make sure that nothing is blocking the air vents. There's a small built-in fan for active airflow.
Connect it to power using a 5V micro-USB cable. Use a smartphone or a computer with WLAN capabilities to connect to the local hotspot spawned by your SMOGGIE unit. The SSID is uRADMonitor-XX, where XX are the last two digits of the Device ID number. The key is the Device ID, in uppercase, as printed on the enclosure. Open 192.168.4.1 in your browser, and click the "WIFI/CONFIG" link to setup the connection to the Internet AP. Enter the SSID and key of your Internet Access Point. If the connection fails, you will see the status message.
