1. How often do I need to change the PM sensor?

  • TSI recommends replacing the PM sensor once a year.

12. Can I decide if I want a firmware update or not?

  • You will be asked when (or if) you want to upgrade your BlueSky monitor’s firmware. If a new firmware is available, TSI Link Solutions will notify you.

Please note that critical firmware will automatically update after you delay three times, which is the industry standard. Also, yes, your BlueSky monitor will need to be connected to WiFi in order for the firmware to update.

14. What happens if I lose Wi-Fi connection to TSI Link Solutions in the middle of a firmware update?

  • If the Wi-Fi connection is lost during a firmware update, your BlueSky monitor will revert to its earlier firmware configuration.
