The Minut sensor needs to be recharged approximately every 10 months, depending on the environment and wifi connectivity where it’s installed. You charge it by using the charging cable and a normal charge takes between 4-6 hours. When it's time for your device to be charged you'll receive an email, then you'll have about two weeks before the battery drains.
Lights when charging
On the bottom of the device (under the magnetic plate), there is a LED light, indicating different states in charge.
Charging - blinking green. If the battery is entirely empty, it might take some time for this to happen.
Fully charged - solid green.
Contact support to resolve the issue - blinking red.
Leave your Minut on while charging. If the device is turned off, the light is disabled. Charging will take a lot longer, approximately 40 hours.
Where is the ON button? The ON button is located on the back of the Minut. In the beginning, you need to remove the magnetic metal plate from the device. Once you have removed it, you can see the button and the LED charge light.
Is Minut hardwired? The device is not meant to be hardwired and we recommend you charge the device as described. However, it will work fine if you rather keep it plugged in with the cable at all times.
Instantly turn ON the Security Alarm
Many of our users value battery life highly. This is why Minut as a default has a delay in turning on the Security Alarm.
Minut will update motion once every hour as normal, to save battery life. This also means that when turning on the Security Alarm there's a delay, shown as a count down in the app.
If you rather have the alarm turn on right away, toggle Instantly turn on the alarm from your profile. This will cut the battery life down to around 5 months.
Having this feature turned off does not affect the alarm going off once motion is detected. This will always happen instantly.
