In the “MAC” field, you must enter the unique identifier code of the device, which you can find printed on the bottom or the side of the device.
The “Name” field is for you to give a familiar name to the device to identify it on the system easily.
The “Tags” field allows one to enter one or more tags for better identification and helps make device groups. Later, when you create a report or an event with multiple devices, it will be very easy to find it to search by tags.

To communicate to Bindelo Central, the SL900 sensors must be in the range of an SL900-Collector.
To help deploy the SL900 and ensure the sensor is within the range of the collector. On the backside of the sensor, under the battery lid, is a button.
- 1 Range press button, 2 Range LED
When this button is pressed for a couple of seconds, the Range LED will flash and then be solid, indicating the range test mode is on. Every time that the Collector replies to a ping from the sensor, the Range LED will blink; this means that the Collector is in range. It is essential to turn off the range test mode by pressing the button again until the LED turn off. While the sensor is in range test mode, it won’t send any readings, and the battery will be depleted very soon.
