Warning: Installation should be performed only by personnel qualified and/or licensed to work on building electrical systems. The electrical faceplate should not be removed. Under no circumstances may a metal faceplate be used.
1. The Sensors are NOT intended to be used as general smoke detectors or to function as a life safety device. They are not designed to detect non-cigarette or non-marijuana smoke. The Sensors will not detect or warn occupants of a fire or the presence of smoke from a fire.
2. The Sensors do not give any audible alarm when smoking is detected.
3. Buyer may not, under any circumstances, use the Sensors for any purpose other than monitoring for smoking using a FreshAir device which is monitored by the FreshAir cloud based monitoring service (the “Monitoring Service ”).
4. The Sensors are intended to detect smoking only in the room where the sensor is located. They are NOT intended to detect smoke intrusion from other locations, such as second-hand smoke that may come through a ventilation system, open windows or doors, etc. and they may not detect such smoke.
5. The effectiveness of the Sensors will be limited by their placement and other location-specific environmental factors. Careful attention should be given to installation and location so that Sensors will not be obstructed and will not be located in places where they will not receive a proper flow of air from the room where they are installed (such as adjacent to ventilation registers or behind furniture).
6. Reliable Wi-Fi and Internet services are required for FreshAir to provide Monitoring Services. It is the Customer’s responsibility to provide these services. FreshAir will not be able to generate alerts if Sensors have inadequate Wi-Fi signals, Internet connections or at times when there are interruptions to such services.
7. The device must be connected to a continuous power supply. The power must not, at any time, be interrupted. Under no circumstances may the device be connected to an outlet with a switch. If, at any time, power is interrupted monitoring will not take place until power is restored. It is the sole responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that power is available. FreshAir bears no responsibility for periods when power in interrupted.
7. An App or web portal is required for installation of the Sensors and connection to Monitoring Services. Customer is responsible to provide adequate computer and networking hardware and other equipment to connect and operate the sensors and Monitoring Services.
8. Reports and/or Alerts that are generated by the Monitoring Services do not differentiate between marijuana and nicotine smoking.
9. A subscription shall be required for Monitoring Services in accordance with FreshAir’s policies and procedures and such subscriptions shall be subject to periodic fees which may include monthly or annual fees and fees based on the number of Sensors in use.
10. All data collected by and communicated to FreshAir via Monitoring Services shall be the sole property of FreshAir and may be used by FreshAir as it determines in its sole discretion, except that the Customer shall be entitled to use the information provided in alerts or reports from FreshAir in the Customer’s sole discretion and at the Customer’s sole risk.
11. Customer shall also take the following into consideration in the installation and use of the Sensors:
a. Sensors should be placed close to where smoking is likely to occur (or otherwise in a central location.)
b. The electrical outlet faceplate should not be removed from the electrical outlet. Under no circumstances may a metal outlet cover be used. Please use appropriate care when working with an outlet.
c. The Sensor device should not be disassembled (do not remove the front cover from the backing).
d. The Sensors should be installed and used indoors in dry, climate controlled locations only. The Sensors are not designed, certified or tested for outdoor use or for use in wet locations.
e. The Sensors should not be installed or used in locations where they may be exposed to temperatures below 0 C/32 F or above 40 C / 104 F.
f. The Sensors should not be installed using extension cords.
g. The Sensors must be installed in a three-prong North American Type B outlet with a functional and properly installed grounding conductor. Do not replace an older two-pronged outlet with a three-pronged outlet without properly connecting a ground conductor. Do not defeat the outlet ground by cutting the grounding pin from the Sensor.
h. The Sensors are not designed to be used “upside-down” with the grounding pin above the slotted pins on the outlet. If the grounding pin on the outlet is above the slotted pins, the outlet must be removed and rotated so that the grounding pin is down. This should be performed only by personnel qualified and/or licensed to work on building electrical systems.
i. The Sensors are designed and must be used only with alternating current at nominal 120V and allow a range of 114 V to 126 V (RMS) (−5% to +5%).
j. The tamper proof screw used to attach the Sensor to the outlet requires a screwdriver with interchangeable heads.
12. Customer should take the following into consideration in the care and maintenance of the Sensors:
a. Dust accumulation over time is normal and may affect the sensitivity of the Sensors. Vents on the Sensors should be cleaned regularly. Do not insert any hard object or metal object into the vents on the Sensor. Electrical shock or damage to the Sensor could occur. FreshAir recommends carefully vacuuming the vents with a non-metallic hose-type vacuum to remove dust.
b. Sensor cartridges may become less sensitive after repeated exposure to the target chemical and it is recommended that they be replaced after 3 smoking incidents.
c. Sensors will not operate without the sensor cartridge properly installed.
