Initial installation error due to device/station ids?


I am doing my initial install and get the following error when entering the initial info:

The station id as shown in the app starts with ST- , but that input is not accepted with or without the “-” . Am I entering the station id incorrectly? Any suggestions?


The ‘ST-’ is the Tempest serial number… NOT the station ID.

That did it thanks !

I misread the Station ID in the app. If you look a little more, there is the “real” station id in there.

Thanks again for all your help!
