How to Install the sensor
What to keep in mind during Outdoor Mode
When you receive the Minut sensor it's usually not fully charged, so start out with charging it. The battery can last for up to a year before charging is needed. The Gen 3 sensor can be hardwired indoors only.
You can follow the charging progress at the battery indicator on the back of the sensor. The lights blink when charging and turn solid when charged. A full charge should take 1-4 hours.
How to install the sensor?
The sensor is installed in your properties via the mobile app.
Any team member with access to the home can install the sensor.

What to keep in mind when the sensor is in Outdoor Mode:
Avoid direct sunlight or rain
To reduce rain splash, place device at 20 inches/50 cm above ground
Don’t install close to noisy equipment such as AC units
If you're installing the device outdoors, you should rotate the Gen 3 Sensor so that the motion sensor is in the bottom right corner (the clear circle). This is to ensure the USB-C port is best protected from rain or other weather conditions.
AudioID: When it comes to noise detection, AudioID has been applied so that noise alerts won't be triggered by wind blowing around the sensor, this will prevent false positives.
The following features are not available when the sensor is in outdoor mode:
Alarm sound and glass break recognition
Mold risk analysis
Almost freezing insight
Is the Sensor Waterproof: The Minut Sensor is not waterproof, but is instead weatherproof. If placed outdoors we strongly recommend to place the device under a roof/cover. The sensor can withstand rain, temperature fluctuations, and dust.
The next step is to set your thresholds.
