You can connect multiple sensors to the same data table at the same time. It works nearly the same as connecting a single device.

On any graphing question, you will notice a new option in the Cog menu: "Configure Bluetooth Device." Click this option to get started.

Once you do, you will need to connect a device. To connect a device, select "Connect Device."

Once you have done this, a browser pop-up will appear, showing you all of the paired Bluetooth devices near you. Each has a naming convention:

  • GDX: Go Direct Sensor

  • "TMP" - Temperature

  • The alphanumeric code at the end is the sensor ID. This matches the sensor and is written on the sensor's barcode. If you are working in a room with multiple live sensors, you should match your sensor with the sensor in the list.

Select the sensor, then click "Pair." The pairing process can take a few seconds. Once you have selected your FIRST sensor, select "+Connect Device" again and select the NEXT sensor. You will continue this for each sensor.

Once a device is paired, the icon on the left of the pairing list will change. Notice the image below:

  • TMP (temperature) is paired, so its symbol is the Bluetooth symbol.

  • MD (motion) is NOT paired, so its symbol is the signal strength symbol.

Once the device is paired, you will notice that the device name appears in the "Device Name" list, and you have the option to remove it. Additionally, you have the option to set the sample rate and the number of samples taken. The sample rate and the number of samples are universal to ALL devices connected to that table. The table will populate with the data columns for each device in order of the "Connected Device" list. So, the first paired device will be on the left.

Note: if the sample rate is greater than the device's capable sample rate, the rows for that sample will not populate. Once you have connected all of your devices, click "ok" to begin working.
