One of the biggest jobs for the button on the side of the sensor is to let the Propeller app know that your sensor is available to sync! Syncing your sensor helps make sure the information you are seeing in the app is correct. You can also use this button to turn your reminder sounds on and off.

It doesn’t happen very often, but there are a few times when you’ll be asked to press the side button on your sensor. One of those times is when the app asks you to press the button! You will need to do this when you first get your sensor or if it’s been a while since your sensor has been able to sync with your smartphone/tablet. Other than syncing your sensor, you may also be asked to press the button on the side of your sensor if you contact Support for help. This will help them determine what may be wrong and how they can help resolve your issue.
Wondering if you need to press the button on the side of your sensor each time you use your inhaler or after a refill? It doesn’t hurt anything if you do, but it isn’t necessary to press the button at these times.
