With the second version of the Sensotrol Wireless 3000, users now have the freedom to install their favourite melodies or songs onto the Sensotrol receiver, creating a unique and immersive environment in their homes. In this article, we will guide you through the simple steps required to install your very own MP3 melody using the Sensotrol Wireless 3000.
Step 1: Gather the Required Materials
Before we begin, make sure you have the following materials ready:
- Sensotrol Wireless 3000 receiver
- USB Type A cable (provided with the device)
- Computer with USB port
Step 2: Connect the Sensotrol Receiver to Your Computer
Start by plugging one end of the USB Type A cable into the receiver's USB port. Then, connect the other end of the cable to an available USB port on your computer. The connection will establish a link between the receiver and your computer, allowing you to transfer your desired melody.
Step 3: Navigate to File Explorer
Once the connection is established, navigate to your computer's file explorer. You can usually access it by clicking on the folder icon located on your taskbar or by pressing the Windows key + E.
Step 4: Locate the Sensotrol Receiver
In the file explorer window, locate the "This PC" section, typically found in the left-hand pane. Under "Devices and Drives," you should see the USB drive associated with the Sensotrol receiver. It is usually labeled as "USB Drive (D:)" or similar.
Step 5: Transfer Your MP3 Melody
Now, locate the MP3 melody file that you want to install onto the Sensotrol receiver. It can be a song or any custom audio clip of your choice. Once you have found the desired file, simply drag and drop it into the USB drive labeled "Sensotrol" or similar. The file transfer may take a few moments, depending on the size of the MP3.
Step 6: Select the Melody Duration (Optional)
If you wish to customise the duration of your melody, you can use the MP3 editor installed on your computer. Open the MP3 editor and import the transferred melody file. In the editor, you will find options to adjust the start and end points of the melody. This feature allows you to create shorter snippets or loops of the song if desired. Once you have made the necessary adjustments, save the edited MP3 file.
Step 7: Disconnect the Sensotrol Receiver
Once the melody transfer is complete, safely disconnect the Sensotrol receiver from your computer. You can do this by either clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in your system tray or right-clicking on the USB drive associated with the receiver in the file explorer and selecting "Eject" or "Safely Remove."
Step 8: Enjoy Your Customised Melody
Now that you have installed your own melody onto the Sensotrol receiver, you can place it in your desired location within your domestic environment or at home. The receiver will play the melody when triggered by appropriate Sensomat products, providing a comforting and familiar auditory experience for individuals in need of dementia or aged care.
