Smart Sock 3: How to turn off your Sensor

On occasion, you may decide to turn off your Smart Sock 3 sensor (e.g. traveling, washing, etc). Please follow these steps to successfully turn off your sensor. 

Here's how to turn off the sensor:

  1. Unplug the base station and remove the sock. 
  2. Press and hold the base station button while you plug the base station back in. Keep pressing the button until you hear the base station chirp 4 times. The light ring will change to blinking orange.
    • Release pressure after the first chirp is heard. 
  3. Quickly press the base station button once (1). The base station will chirp once (1) in return.
    • It is important to click the button while the ring is blinking orange, otherwise, the sock will not properly turn off. 
  4. If successful, the Sock light on the bottom of the base station will not be illuminated and the sensor light on the sock will turn off. The base station will then turn off completely. 

Quick Tip!

If the sensor is unresponsive, place the sensor on the base station and follow the steps above again.
