The Meter Reader IR Air magnetically attaches to the circular infrared interface of the meter. The device is supplied with power (12-24VDC) either by using the enclosed Micro USB power adapter or via the terminals. Position the device on the meter so that the USB port points downwards and the Loxone logo is displayed correctly.

A magnetic ring in the Meter Reader holds the device to the meter's IR interface.
Some meters may already be equipped with a built-in magnetic ring. Depending on the magnet's polarity, the two magnets may repel each other.
In such a case, the Loxone Meter Reader IR Air can be opened to adjust the orientation of the magnetic ring.


In delivery state, pairing mode will be active after the power supply has been established. This is indicated by the status LED flashing red/green/orange.

Then follow the pairing procedure

To activate the pairing mode manually, hold down the pairing button for at least 5 seconds after establishing power supply. The pairing button and status LED are located centrally on the top of the device.
