Set Up a New R3W WiFi Sensor

Installation guide for TankMate R3 sensors

Add a New Sensor

Using BlueConnect

  • In the TankMate app, select R3 - on the "Add New Sensor" screen

  • Scan the QR code - located under the base of the sensor

The sensor will go to sleep after 3 minutes of inactivity. To get it back into BluConnect mode, press the READ / RESET button once, to wake it up

  • Follow the prompts in the app to initiate a temporary bluetooth connection. This will only last until the sensor has been connected to the WiFi network

  • A success message will be displayed after the sensor has connected to the app

On the next screen:

  • Select the correct WiFi network (SSID) and enter the password

  • Ensure the sensor is still blinking dark blue

  • Press "CONFIRM" to send your network details to the sensor

A success message should be displayed in the app - to indicate a successful connection! Continue through the next few screens to set the tank dimensions.

No SSID listed in the app? This may happen when:

  • the phone is not connected to a WiFi network

  • location services have not been enabled for the app - see here

Note: The sensor should be within a few metres of your mobile phone - to ensure the temporary bluetooth connection is still in range
