How do I perform an ad-hoc experiment with my Weather Station?
To use the Mantis sensors you will need to download the Mantis app!

Once you have downloaded the Mantis app, you can follow the instructions below!
One of the most exciting aspects of the Mantis platform is the ability to grab a sensor, start the Mantis app, and begin recording data for any number of real life scenarios.
The first step in starting an ad-hoc experiment is to tap on the Browse or Start your own Experiment tile found on the Mantis app home page.

The next step is to tap the Start my own experiment button.

The Mantis app will present you with a list of the sensors available to use for your ad-hoc experiment. Tap the sensor you would like to use for gathering the information for your experiment.

The Mantis app will need to be paired to your device. The Mantis app will present you with the pairing screen before you can get started collecting data.  Tap the green Pair button located on the left side of the Main Navigation bar.

The Mantis app will now display the Weather Station has been paired and is ready to start displaying data as well as collect the data when you are ready to do so.  With a successful pairing the system will now show  the ad-hoc experiment page with data streams showing on the left side sensor panel actively displaying sensor data. To un-pair the Weather Station, tap the red un-pair button.

In the event your device does not pair successfully with the Mantis app, the No Devices Found screen will be shown.  Make sure you have the Weather Station powered on and tap the Scan Again button.  The Mantis app will again scan for your device.  If you still cannot pair to your Weather Station, you may want to power everything down and reopen the app and start again.
