When you receive your Wi-Fi leak detector, the temperature alert settings will be automatically set to between 4 and 32 degrees Celsius (39 – 90 degrees Fahrenheit), and the humidity alert settings will be automatically set to between 0% and 75%. You can amend the temperature and humidity alerts for each leak detector in your Roost app. Please note: the changes you make in your app will not be "live" on the device until it checks into the Roost Cloud to receive these changes. 

Start at the home screen, and tap on the name of your leak detector. In this example, the leak detector is in the Kitchen (location) and is named Sink (Image 1).


 After you have opened the device menu by tapping the device tile, tap 'Alert Settings' (Image 2).

You can customize the alert levels as seen in Image 3. First make sure the Temperature alert and Humidity alerts are turned on. Then, place your finger on the "dots" on the temperature and humidity scales and slide left or right to the level you wish (Image 3). Tap "Save" when you are finished (Image 4).

NOTE: In Image 4, you will be alerted when the temperature goes BELOW 39 deg F or ABOVE 99 deg F. You will be alerted if the humidity goes BELOW 10% or ABOVE 80%.
