@mathewbeall, great question. We’ll be adding more documentation once we can process the flow meter data, but in short, installing a flow sensor is a 4 step process:
- Mount: Follow the instructions provided in the flow sensor’s manual to install the flow sensor at the desired location. (Example from CST) Each flow sensor comes with its own instructions for where the sensor should be installed and aligned. Usually, a formula for the placement of the sensor is used based upon the size of the pipe. An example mount/installation is below:
- Wire: The flow sensor wires should be shielded as to reduce the risk of electrical interference. Avoid running the flow sensor wires in the same wire harness as the valve wires (increases the likelihood of signal noise).
- Connect: There will be two wire leads that extend from the flow sensor. Insert each wire into the Gen 2’s sensor terminals.
- Setup: Within the app (see this support article for details)…additional steps may be added in the future.
