Welcome to the world of Monty Monitor!

We are so excited to have you join our compost community and start using Monty Monitor. We understand that getting started with new tech can be overwhelming so we've created this page to help guide you through the process. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced composter, our goal is to provide you with the resources and information you need to make the most out of Monty Monitor.

So, let's get started!

Unboxing Monty Monitor

Once you've removed your Monty box from it's mailer, to take the Monitor out, simply lift the top section off. You may need to wiggle it but otherwise it should just slide off.

Once you've opened the box, the Monitor can be removed. To check whether it's ready to use, view the white tip: if there is a flashing blue light, it's good to go, otherwise it will need to be charged.

Finally, you need to take out the wireless charger and cable, located under the interior packaging, which may also need some wiggling to remove.

Charging Monty Monitor

With Monty's wireless charging, you can keep powered up without the need for any exposed outlets.

After removing the charging pad and cable from their packaging, plug them into a dedicated USB-adapter wall outlet. The charger should emit a red light, at which point you can place the Monitor on the pad. A yellow or red light should then be emitted from the Monitor, indicating how low the battery is; if not, you may need to adjust its position to ensure that the charging coils on both are fully aligned.

Once your product is properly positioned and emitting a charging light, it will automatically begin charging. Leave it in position for at least 1 hour and then you're ready to go!

Connecting to Monty Monitor

Connecting your Monitor to Monty Mobile via Bluetooth is the first step in accessing all its data and features.

Firstly, make sure that the Monitor is charged, flashing a blue light and within 10-20 metres of your mobile device. Download and install Monty Mobile from your smartphones app store, launch it and follow the on-screen instructions to create an account. This includes both compost pile and weekly waste profiles, at which point you will be prompted to pair with your Monitor.

Once connected, your Monitor data will start streaming in. On the first time it may take up to 5 minutes but subsequently it will only be 10-20 seconds.
