Battery Status Monitoring and Charging

We suggest fully charging Fingerbot before first use. To charge, please: 

1. Connect the USB Type-C cable provided in the Fingerbot package to a general power adapter.

2. Connect the other end of the cable to your Fingerbot. 

When fully charged, the indicator light will turn from red to green. You can monitor the specific battery level by connecting Fingerbot with the App.

Adaprox Home App is the mobile platform for controlling Adaprox devices. You can search "Adaprox Home" in the mobile application store to install the App.

Device Pairing

After resetting the device, open the App and go to the “Add a device” page. Click the Fingerbot button. Ensure the system Bluetooth of your smartphone is enabled and Fingerbot shall be discovered automatically.

Device Installation

To install your Fingerbot:

1. Clean the surface of the button panel where you want to install the Fingerbot.

2. Attach it 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 just 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.


Robotic Arm Extension

With the modular design, the Fingerbot’s arm is replaceable in order to meet different needs in diverse situations. We officially designed three types of Fingerbot arms and include them in the Fingerbot ToolPack (needs to be purchased separately). Also, we provide free 3D-printing templates for you to design customized Fingerbot arms. Visit www.adaprox.io to download the digital files.
