Introducing:  The Wireless Tag iOS App

Step 1: Activate Your Ethernet Tag Manager

Install our iPhone/iPad app from AppStore by searching "WirelessTag" or follow this link.
Use the 12 digit serial numbers on your Ethernet Tag Manager to create a login. Keep the serial number in a safe place.

Step 2: Associate New Wireless Tags

Follow this step to associate each new Tags with the Tag Manager. For water/moisture sensors, please activate by shorting the tip using a metal object (scraping the tip using a coin, for example) or dipping the tip into water. A red light should start flashing on the sensor every few seconds for about 2 minutes, before the sensor goes into sleep again. Search & associate like other tags while the light is flashing.

Step 3: Assign Tag Names and Pictures (If Needed)

You can edit tag names, comments and assign pictures to each Wireless Sensor Tag.

Step 4: Motion Sensor, Temperature Monitoring, and Logging Interval

Motion sensor and temperature (and humidity) monitoring are turned off by default. Follow the steps below to turn them on/off as needed. Temperature (+humidity, ambient light) logging happens independently of monitoring. The logging interval is set to 10 minutes by default, which can be changed as necessary.

Event History:
All past events, or only specific kind, or only from specific tag

By swiping left on the tag list screen, or tap on the "Events" button on the top left corner, you can bring up the "Event History" where all types of events (such as open/close/moved, too hot/cold, too wet/dry, out of range/back in range, water detected) from all tags associated with selected tag manager will be shown in chronological order. The newest events are displayed on top, while older and older events are dynamically downloaded from the cloud as you scroll down.

Events are collected 24/7 as long as the Tag Manager is connected to the Internet, so you can always review what happened while you were away.

IFTTT:   If This Then That.
The easiest way to link tags with other things on the Internet.

IFTTT is a free Web/iOS/Android app that connects all kinds of Internet-enabled products (such as sprinklers, lights and thermostats) and services (such as Gmail, iOS/Android device location, and more) referred to as "Channels". Wireless Sensor Tags is an officially supported IFTTT Channel.

Motion Sensor Options:
Sensitivity, Response, Notification Settings and Scheduling

Tune the sensitivity and responsiveness of the motion sensor to suit your application. In motion detection mode, choose to remember moved state indefinitely or reset to armed state after a while. In door/gate mode, choose the threshold angle (23 degree is recommended for automatic garage doors, 2~5 degree for regular doors), or choose to get notified only when door is opened for too long.
Choose to get notified by emails, tweets, speech, or whether to make tag beep upon motion.
Set the schedule to automatically arm or disarm the motion sensor at certain time of the day, and days of the week.

Beeping a Tag, Stop Beeping, and Beep Options

Every wireless sensor tag has a beep function to help you find missing tags. Attach the tag to key chains, put inside your wallet, or strap to TV remote controls, and never waste time looking for these items again.

Temperature Graphs and Motion/Door Stats

Each tag automatically logs temperature and each time it is moved, opened or closed, so you can always check what happened while you were away.

Using More Than One Tag Manager

Use multiple tag managers to cover a wider area, enable tags to "roam" from one area to another, or manage more than 255 tags at one time. Use the Web/Android app to add tag managers to your account.
