    The seneye device can be used in the following ways. Online will give you constant uploads to with alerts. Offline will allow the device to work as a data logger and upload readings when the device is next connected to a PC using SCA.

For those who require even more range, the seneye active USB extension cable allows the cable length of the seneye device to be increased by an additional 15m. The seneye device can also be connected to a wireless USB bridge giving increased flexibility over Wi-Fi. You will however still need a PC running the SCA.

    Internet connection (for setup and online use)

    Seneye Web Server (SWS) online

    The SWS removes the need for any PC in the house and will connect your seneye to your internet router. It will then send results directly to the seneye cloud website. Visit for more information. With the SWS you can use a seneye device and an apple computer.

    If you are using your seneye with a Seneye Web Server please follow these instructions.

    Power Adaptor offline

    After initial set up, your seneye can be connected to a seneye USB power adapter. This option is great if you don’t wish to have your seneye device constantly connected to a PC.
