What is AC Power Mode?
AC Power Mode is a new software update for the Knocki devices you already own. This mode auto-detects if Knocki is using the compatible power adapter. If the compatible adapter is detected, Knocki is able to trigger tasks more quickly.
Much Faster Response times: In AC Power Mode, the response time to trigger tasks is fast. Knocki recognizes the special settings of this adapter and leaves its WiFi on for zippy performance.
Eliminates Reliance on Batteries: In AC Power mode, Knocki is always plugged-in and powered. This means no more need to replace batteries.
How Do I Get AC Power Mode?
Your Knocki will wirelessly update with AC Power Mode when the power adapter is used. You'll know this mode is on via the Knocki app.
How it Works:
Step 1: For US/Canada, get this power adapter. For EU, get this, and for other regions, you may use an adapter to your local plug type (You may also use any 3v-3.2v DC power source to the battery terminals).
Step 2: Remove the battery cover from Knocki, ensure Knocki is powered off, remove existing batteries, and replace with the cable-powered "battery" in the battery slot nearest to the power switch, and the loose "battery" in the slot nearest to it as in the image below. The other two slots should remain empty.
Step 3: Power Knocki back on and replace the battery cover, ensuring that the flat cable is routed under the battery cover as shown below. Mount Knocki back to the mounting bracket.
Step 4: Experience the improved performance of AC Power Mode! The app will let you know that you've successfully activated the mode.
