Make sure Bluetooth is turned on for your device. Unlike typical Bluetooth devices, you do NOT need to pair Bluetooth Smart devices like the WEATHERmeter with your phone. Just start the app, turn on the meter, and it will connect automatically.
For Android devices: Enabling location services is necessary to scan for Bluetooth LE devices.
For iOS devices running new iOS 13: Be sure to accept the new Bluetooth permission for the pairing process to succeed.
Make sure you have the Wind & Weather Meter app installed or another supported application. See how to install the Wind & Weather meter app.
For All Devices:
- Make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
- If you previously paired the meter in your smartphone's Bluetooth settings, you will need to "forget" or "unpair" the meter from your phone.
- Make sure all app permissions are allowed: in your phone settings locate your apps > locate the Wind & Weather Meter app > permissions > make sure everything is allowed.
- Verify the WEATHERmeter is connected. This can be done a few different ways:
- First check to see if the main screen of the Wind & Weather meter app is showing a green "Start" button.
- If instead of green "Start" button there is a gray "Not Connected" on the screen, then push the on/off button once. The LED light on the WEATHERmeter might blink a few times before it connects. Once it does connect, there should be the green "Start" button on the screen.
- Try holding down the on/off button on the WEATHERmeter until it flashes. Then, press the on/off button once to turn it back on. It should connect and the "Not Connected" will switch to the green "Start" button.
