A. Pressure sensor installation

  1. Install the CO2 pressure regulator on the CO2 canister. Make sure that the screw of the regulator is tight to avoid any gas leak.
  1. Connect the sensor to the iLink using the M12 connector cable.

  2. Tighten the screw of the connectors to secure the connection.

  3. Remove the plastic tab to turn on the iLink.

  1. Screw the three screws in order to secure the back cover of the iLink.
  1. Place the iLink in a way that no water can leak onto it. Use zip ties or double-sided tapes to secure its position.

B. Pressure sensor configuration on the Droople App

  1. Scan the QR Code on the iLink with the orange cable with your smartphone
  1. Log in to your Droople account if needed.
  1. Once logged in, you will be redirected to the setup page. As your asset already exists because you created it a few steps before, you will have to click on the button Attach to an existing asset and choose the asset from the drop-down list.
  1. Configure the sensor connected to your iLink
    a. Specify the number of sensors connected to your iLink: 1 in your case
    b. For your sensor:
    i. Select the sensor type: CO2 pressure sensor
  1. Click “Update”. You will then be redirected to the list of your configured assets.

  2. Your metrics should now be available in the menu under “Metrics Overview”.

Let's see if the magic works

  1. To see if everything has been set up correctly, let water flow into the asset you want to monitor for at least 10 seconds.

  2. Check that the sensor has been correctly installed and there is no water leakage.

  3. Connect to the Droople App and see if some data are displayed in the Metrics Overview dashboard. Note that the Droople App will need up to 30 minutes to display the first data points.

  4. Congratulations! You have successfully installed the Droople Smart Water Dispenser. It’s time to take a break and enjoy a good glass of water :-)
