SWS set up instructions
DO NOT CONNECT THE SWS TO THE WI-FI ADAPTOR UNTIL INSTRUCTED
IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED ANY PART OF THE SYSTEM 2nd HAND PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE SETUP
Stage 1 - Creating your seneye.me account
If you already have a seneye account please proceed to stage 2.
If you have not yet made a Seneye account, please do so by following the link below:
You will need to use the E-mail address that you would like your alerts sent to.
Once you have created your account, please return to this page to continue setup.
p.s - Ignore the section in the welcome email that mentions downloading the Seneye Connect Application as this is for our users setting up with a PC
Stage 2 - Registering the SWS to your account
Now you have created your Seneye account, please click the link below to register your SWS.
You will be asked for your E-mail address, password, and the details that are on the sticker on the SWS packaging. An example of this is shown below:
Please note that O is the letter O and not the number 0 in the ID
If you do not have this sticker or have lost it, please remove the back cover of your SWS by pressing in the clips on either side. Once the back is removed, you will find a label containing the ID and PIN ;)
Stage 3 - Connecting the SWS to your Local Area Network
If you are using any products such as BT Parental Controls or SKY shield or other internet security services then the SWS may not be able to communicate with the seneye servers. Please click here for more information.
PLEASE DO NOT CONNECT YOUR Seneye USB Device (SUD) TO THE SWS YET
A. CONNECT YOUR SWS TO YOUR ROUTER VIA AN ETHERNET (You must do this before you connect your SWS to a wifi module)
1. Plug the Ethernet cable (supplied) into the purple port on your SWS
2. Then connect the other end of the cable directly to your router.
B. CONNECT POWER
1. Plug the USB power adaptor (supplied) into the mains.
2. Connect one end of the micro USB cable (supplied) into USB power adaptor.
3. Connect the other end into the micro USB port (black port) of the SWS.
Your SWS will now boot up:
When your SWS boots, the lights on the front will flash in the following sequence:
Stage 4 - Finding the SWS GUI (Graphic User Interface)
Open a web browser on a device that is on the same area network as your router, if you are running dual-band Wi-Fi you will need to be on the same band. If connecting on a mobile/cell phone, please ensure you have mobile/cellular data turned off.
Your URL was provided when you registered your SWS. It is made up of your ID an example is given below to show the format:
Find your SWS ID on the label on the front of the SWS. If you don't have this label anymore then it can be found by unclipping the back cover of the SWS.
This is what your SWS GUI will look like, don't forget to bookmark it in your browser so you can access it easily!
For more information on how to use your GUI follow this link: Seneye Web Server Graphic User Interface
If you cannot find your SWS GUI, then please contact us at [email protected]
Stage 5 - Connecting and updating your Seneye USB Device
Connect your Seneye USB Device (SUD) directly to the SWS.
You must connect the SUD directly to the SWS and not use any form of extension leads as the SUD will not communicate correctly.
If the SWS has detected that the firmware is out of date, it will put the SUD in boot load mode, and the SUD tile on the GUI will tell you to keep your device connected.
Do not disconnect your SUD from the SWS until the tile shows the image below and the LEDs on the front of the SWS are still circling.
Once the tile above is shown and the lights have stopped circling, disconnect the SUD from the SWS and reconnect it to complete the update.
You will be able to see the update has been successful because the lights will illuminate. If the device is out of water, the lights on the front will flash as shown below:
Please make sure you keep your SWS in a dry place, away from water and humidity. If you are unable to do this, please purchase our DRI box.
Stage 6 - Marine Tick (Saltwater tanks only)
If you are using your SUD in saltwater you will need to check the Marine Tick box for your SUD so that it can adjust pH readings accordingly. If you are using your SUD in freshwater you do not need to make this adjustment and can skip ahead to Stage 7.
Once your SUD has been connected to your SWS, and the firmware has been updated if it needs to be, you can check the Marine Tick box using the Seneye Web Server's GUI.
Click on the SUD settings tile on your Web Server's GUI:
Then check the Marine Tick and press save:
You can always uncheck the Marine Tick box at a later stage if you want to use your SUD in freshwater instead of saltwater.
Stage 7 - Fit and register your slide: Register your slide
Stage 8 - Setting up a WiFi module
If your SWS came with a WiFi adaptor module, you will need to set it this up.
