You can easily select BLE (Bluetooth) instead of WIFI. But with WIFI you will have unlimited range on your device.
If you press the bar where the temperature is displayed, you will be able to set up a cooking session.
It is not necessary for the docking station to be connected to power during use. The only thing you need to be aware of, is that when you use it via WiFi, it requires more power. But otherwise, you can always see the battery level in the App. And a small red diode above the socket on the docking station will light up when the level is low.
The app is only connected to the docking station. Once you are connected to the docking station and have selected the type of connection (WiFi or BLE), it will search for your sensor - the first time it may take 10-15 seconds to show the temperature in the App.
In open environment the range between sensor and docking station is up to 20 meters. When using it in a BBQ with closed iron Lid it is important to have the docking station close to the sensor
With a fully charged sensor, you will be able to have a cooking session between 8-10 hours - it depends a lot on the temperature you aim to reach
When connected on WiFi the docking station will run for approx. 12 hours. If it is on Bluetooth, it can take months between charges, depending on the number of cooking sessions.
  • Make sure the sensor is fully charged. Start by charging it for min. 8 hours.
  • When the sensor is placed in the docking station for charging the wifi and Bluetooth symbols must disappear and the docking station closes down.
  • When the sensor is removed from the docking station the green symbol will start flashing indicating the docking station is searching for the app.
  • When the app is opened and connects to the docking station the blue symbol will start flashing.
  • When the sensor connects to the docking station the blue symbol turns solid blue.
  • When wifi connection is established the green symbol turns solid green.
  • Wifi only connect on 2.4 GHz.
  • Make sure the docking station is charged.
  • The sensor is detected by the docking station when the blue symbol turns solid.
  • Make sure the docking station is charged.
  • The sensor is detected by the docking station when the blue symbol turns solid.
  • When the sensor is removed from the docking station the green wifi symbol must start to flash. When connection is established the green wifi symbol turn solid green.
  • When the app is opened and the sensor is removed, you will see a screen “CookPerfect Wireless is found” and can select wifi to connect. Hereafter you should find your own wifi and enter the password to connect.
  • If you cannot find your own wifi, then go to the settings tab in the app and “reset wifi”, close down the app, place the sensor in the docking station until it closes down and then start over to connect.
  • Wifi only connect on 2.4 GHz.
  • Make sure the docking station is charged.
  • The sensor is detected by the docking station when the blue symbol turns solid.
  • When the sensor is removed from the docking station the green wifi symbol must start to flash. When connection is established the green wifi symbol turn solid green.
  • When the app is opened and the sensor is removed, you will see a screen “CookPerfect Wireless is found” and can select wifi to connect. Hereafter you should find your own wifi and enter the password to connect.
  • If you create the wifi connection manually make sure your internet security settings allow you access
  • If you cannot find your own wifi, then go to the settings tab in the app and “reset wifi”, close down the app, place the sensor in the docking station until it closes down and then start over to connect.
  • Wifi only connect on 2.4 GHz.
·      When the sensor is removed from the docking station and the app is opened, the battery level is shown by clicking the battery icon.
  • When the blue Bluetooth symbol is solid, the sensor is detected by the docking station.
  • When the sensor is removed from the docking station, is connected to the docking station and the app is opened, the battery level is shown by clicking the battery icon.

If the link to the instruction videos above didn’t help, then here are a few things to check and try:

  • Ensure your device supports the CookPerfect app: iOS 9.3+ or Android 5.0+
  • Ensure your device supports Bluetooth 4.0+ (BLE)
  • Make sure your Bluetooth is turned ON.
  • If you’re using an Android device, make sure your ’Location’ setting is enabled.
  • When connecting the sensor to the receiver, the Blue Center LED should flash Blue? If that’s not the case, then try to connect again with new batteries installed.
  • When connecting the sensor to the receiver the Blue Center LED should flash Blue and when connecting to the App the Blue Center LED should be solid Blue? If that’s not the case, then try to follow these steps:
    • Remove the batteries and uninstall the CookPerfect App. Install batteries and the App once again and check if the connecting is now successfully.
    • If you still have problems, then try to connect with new batteries installed.

If none of these steps solves your problem, then contact us at support@cookperfect.com.

If the connection between the App and receiver has been lost for more than 10minutes, the receiver goes into a deep sleep to save power (the blue LED is off). To wake up, the receiver unplug the sensor and wait 6 seconds before connecting the sensor to receiver. Within 6 seconds, the receiver will start to flash blue and ready to connect to you App again.

NOTE: The logic in the firmware is designed to save as much power as possible. The receiver search for a sensor each 6 second why you always will have to wait up to 6 seconds before the detection is made. When the receiver is awake it will look for a mobile device or tablet for maximum 10minutes before it goes into sleep again.

If the battery level gets to low the receiver (base unit) will be unstable, potentially causing issues to connect between the App and the receiver. So even if the Blue LED is flashing when sensor is connected and solid when opening the App successfully connection can be a problem if battery power is below a critical level (The App should have notified you if the battery level is below critical level). Try to connect again with new batteries installed. If changing batteries did not solve your problem, then contact us at support@cookperfect.com

If battery level gets to low the receiver (base unit) will be unstable why connection between receiver and the App can be unstable (the App should have notified you if the battery level is below critical level). If you observed the CookPerfect is unstable in communicating with the App please try to connect again with new batteries installed. If changing batteries did not solve your problem, then contact us at support@cookperfect.com

Make sure Location Services is enabled. Android’s system is designed that in order to discover Bluetooth devices nearby, Location Services must be enabled.

While the iPad 2 fits the minimum iOS requirements of 9.3+, it does not have hardware support for Bluetooth Smart (also called Bluetooth Low Energy).

It is quite common that the CookPerfect ambient sensor shows lower ambient temperature than what your oven or grill is displaying. There are a few key reasons for this:

  • When cooking meat, the surface area around the meat will have a lower temperature than the defined cooking (air) temperature inside your oven or grill.
  • This is caused by the colder temperature of the meat cooling down the air around the meat.
  • CookPerfect is measuring the actual heat your food is subject to and not what your oven or grill is showing or set to.
  • Locally inside oven or grill the air temperature can vary a lot, so a small change in placement of the Cookperfect sensor can cause that readings of the air temperature will change significantly.
  • In majority of grills the sensor is place in the lid for measuring the cooking temperature. Here the temperature can be much higher than the temperature surround the cold meat. This is due to the fact the hot air rises as cold air be lowered inside the grill. Therefore specially in a grill you can observe high temperature reading in you lid of the grill compared to ambient temperature shown in you App.
