To add a custom flow sensor, go to Sensors from your web browser or smartphone application.
- Click Add Custom Sensor Type
A dialogue box will appear for you to enter your custom flow meter details. Make sure you enter the calibration details for your custom pulse-based flow meter. Please refer to the manufacturer specifications to find out the calibration. Otherwise, you will not get accurate readings to display on your flow data.
When using a third-party flow meter, please ensure it meets the specs above and is calibrated correctly. Otherwise, data will not reflect accurately in reports. Also, note that the wiring is not polarity sensitive. As long as you have one wire in a Sensor Port and a Sensor Common, the device will work correctly. For flow meters that use three wires and meet the specs above, configure the wiring until you find the two correct wires to use.
