02

Software + Connection

It is time to establish a network! Head over to your computer and plug in our Butlr. Gateway.

The battery will not be included in the international shipping, please purchase it in your local store. Butlr recommends a 3.6V D(ER34615) Size Lithium battery with 19000mAh High energy density. 

Connection

1—Computer

Connect your Butlr. Gateway to a computer.
Keep the computer on at all times throughout the installation process.

Please keep the computer within 25 meters away from any of the heatic sensors installed.

If you do not have access to a computer, a stand long gateway set is avalible for purchase. 

2—Pi

Make sure your Butlr. Pi is properly set up to be connected to a power outlet by plugging in the Pi AC Adaptor as shown in the image on the left.

Once you have plugged in the Pi to a power outlet, go ahead and plug in the Butlr. Gateway to the second port, as shown in the image.

Now that everything has been set up, go ahead and open the virtual keyboard on the Pi. Select your wifi network and type in the password. If you are having trouble using the Pi screen to type, go head and plug in an external mouse and keyboard in the appropriate ports.

It is time to power up!

Installation + Mounting

Before moving forward with the installation:

Make sure you have successfully powered up and installed the Butlr. Gateway

Start installing sensors close to the gateway and then move outwards.

Keep all sensors facing towards the same direction.

On Concrete / Brick Wall

If your wall is made out of concrete, brick or any other solid material with high resistance, first draw a hole in the wall with a machine drill (not included).

Once you are done drilling a hole, insert a twist-resistant anchor with the flops facing outwards (anchor available to order). Then place the mounting picture on top and screw the back of the sensor onto it.

Screw the rest of the sensor on its base.

On Drywall / Wood Paneling

If you want to mount the Butlr. sensor on a drywall or on a wooden framework, first draw a hole in the wall with a machine drill (not included).

Once you are done drilling a hole, insert a wall plug anchor (available to order). Then place the mounting picture on top and screw the back of the sensor onto it.

Screw the rest of the sensor on its base.

On Ceilings

The Butlr. Heatic Sensor can be mounted on a ceiling, heavily suggested for counting traffic at entrances and exits in your space.

While the Butlr. Heatic Sensor will scan at any given distance, the suggested height range for maximum results is from 2.4 to 6 meters / 7 - 19 feet.

If you would like to install the sensor to a door frame, a shelf on a bookcase or a corner of your ceiling, please make sure the sensor is rotated between 110 and 140 degrees for optimum functionality.

Before you start drilling—

Prior to installing your sensor at the ceiling, it is highly recommended to test the area by drilling a small hole. This way you will know whether you are hitting a hollow space, a wooden beam or a reinforced beam.

If you are not sure and/or do not want to permanently damage the ceiling, we highly recommend you use a 3M tape.

On Concrete / Brick Ceiling

If the area made out of concrete, brick or any other solid material with high resistance, first draw a hole in the ceiling with a machine drill (not included).

Once you are done drilling a hole, insert a twist-resistant anchor with the flops facing outwards (anchor available to order). Then place the mounting picture on top and screw the back of the sensor onto it.

Screw the rest of the sensor on its base.

On Drywall / Wood Ceiling

If you want to mount the Butlr. sensor on a drywall or on a wooden framework within your ceiling, first draw a hole in the wall with a machine drill (not included).

Once you are done drilling a hole, insert a wall plug anchor (available to order). Then place the mounting picture on top and screw the back of the sensor onto it.

Screw the rest of the sensor on its base.

On Hollow Ceilings

If the area you want to drill the sensor at is hollow, first draw a hole in the ceiling with a machine drill (not included).

Once you are done drilling a hole, insert a toggle for toggle bolts with the flaps facing outwards (toggle available to order). Then place the mounting picture on top and screw the back of the sensor onto it.

Screw the rest of the sensor on its base.

Using a 3M Tape

In case you do not wish to drill a hole in the wall and permanently damage the structure, we highly suggest you use a 3M Tape to attach our sensor to the surface. Do not worry about the sensor falling — we have designed it to be super light, especially for such cases!
