The physical button allows the Fingerbot to be activated without using your phone. Place your finger on the button at least 0.1s. The Fingerbot will be triggered.
To install your Fingerbot:
1. Clean the surface of the button panel where you want to install the Fingerbot.
2. Attach the Fingerbot to the panel using a double-sided tape provided in the Fingerbot package.
3. Connect your Fingerbot with the app and calibrate the movement of the Fingerbot's robotic arm to fit the button. The 'Down Movement' parameter should be set to the value at which the Fingerbot's arm can press the button.
Note: Improper movement settings may bring additional resistance and reduce the life of your Fingerbot.
4. After installation, we recommend resting the device for 24 hours to reach maximum adhesion.
