Thank you for purchasing LookO2 V4 Air Quality Sensor.
Before you start configuring your new LookO2 sensor – prepare:
In the example presented above you can see Latitude (50.010862) and Longitude (20.116497). This is the format you need during further configuration of LookO2 sensor.
We strongly suggest you configure your sensor close to your home wireless router. Once configuration is complete – you will be able to unplug it and install in (for ex.) outside.
Plug in your device into power outlet. If you’re outside of EU – you may need proper adapter (not included). Sensor requires USB-C 5V – look around your house – you may find existing charger sitting somewhere in your drawer.
Once turned on – Sensor will start (LEDs blinking green) and wait for configuration (LEDs blinking white).
On your laptop or desktop computer – search for wireless network named LOOKO2_ZZZZZ (where ZZZZ is your unique sensor number).
Connect to this network. When asked for WiFi password – use the one provided on the orange sticker (Wifi/Panel pass:)
Once connected – open your web browser and type following address:
192.168.4.1 and press Enter/Return

Leave sensor for 3 minutes now. It will try to connect to your wifi and send data to server.
After around 3 minutes built in LEDs should turn blue or green or red, etc (see what they mean below). It should not blink anymore.
If your sensor keeps blinking (after 3 minutes) and do not glow – read what it means DIAGNOSTICS part of this manual.
Once all is setup correctly and sensor is working properly – LED should constantly glow in one of below colors:
Blue means perfect air quality
Green means very good air quality
Yellow means average air quality
Orange means poor air quality
Red means bad air quality
Dark RED means very bad air quality
Short white flash of LEDs means – sending data to LookO2 servers.
Your sensor is ready to use – configuration is complete. You can unplug your sensor and install it outside – make sure that sensor is in good or very good wireless range. When installing your sensor outside – make sure intake and cable wholes are facing down. Otherwise – water (rain, etc) will get inside the sensor and permanently damage it.
Your sensor informs you about encountered problems using it’s build LED. Whenever there is a problem LEDs will FLASH. Each color means something different.
