Installation

Step 1
Loosen showerhead from shower arm using a wrench in a counter-clockwise direction, then rotate off by hand.

Step 2
If needed, apply teflon tape onto the threads of your shower arm in a clockwise direction.

Step 3
Rotate Oasense onto your shower arm by hand in a clockwise direction, then tighten with a wrench.

 

Before it detects you, Oasense functions like a regular showerhead.
After it detects you, it pauses waterflow when you step away.

showering with oasense

Step 1
While standing outside your shower area, turn on the water to your desired temperature.

Step 2
Go ahead and step into your shower when the water reaches your desired temperature.

Step 3
Oasense functions like a regular showerhead when you are below it; simply step away when you want Oasense to pause waterflow.

Step 4
After you finish showering, be sure to turn off the water, just like normal. Oasense will only pause water for 5 minutes before returning to full waterflow.

 

Oasense has two settings, Manual Mode and Eco Mode.
To detect and switch settings, follow the guidelines below.

here are the issues we’re working to resolve for oasense beta

Eco Mode may be interrupted due to:
1. Water droplets resting on sensor
2. Condensation on sensor
3. Very foggy conditions in the shower
4. Low battery
5. Poor sensitivity to long dark hair

When paused, water temperature may fluctuate due to different:
1. Plumbing infrastructures
2. Shower fixtures
3. Water heaters
