Whether you have just unboxed your first Bacteo Tower Lamp or are just curious to know more and deepen your knowledge on how to use, this is the right place to start!
It is fairly easy to get your new Bacteo Tower Lamp started! However, before doing so, make sure to thoroughly go through the General Safety Instructions.
Once you do so, you can easily follow the below instruction to get your Bacteo Tower Lamp ready for the first disinfection experience.
Carefully remove the top cover from the lamp. After it is removed, lift up the cardboard lamp cover until the lamp is fully exposed. Then, attach the cover back on the top of the lamp.
2. GETTING THE LAMP AND THE ROOM READY
Place the lamp in the middle of the room on a smooth, flat, level surface, preferably away from direct sunlight. Plug the lamp into an outlet. When the Bacteo Tower is plugged into the electrical outlet, the red LED indicator will light up on the right side of the main interface.
Remove animals from the room before starting the disinfection. It is recommended to hide plans from direct exposure of the UV-C light, cover them, or remove them from the room. Close the window curtains.
3. STARTING THE DISINFECTION
Touch and hold the button. Light indicators around the button will light up in a sequence and the lamp will make a beep. Green LED indicator will light up on the right side of the main interface. Lamp is now ready to be configured.
3.1. SELECTING THE DISINFECTION TIME BASED ON THE SIZE OF THE ROOM
You will see a bigger and a smaller number near each of the light indicators. Bigger number represents the size of the room in square meters, while smaller number shows the disinfection duration in minutes that will be needed for the selected size of the room.
Rotate the button and select the size of the room you wish to disinfect: from 5 m² to 60 m². Red light indicators around the button will show the selected room size and disinfection time.
3.2. BEGINNING THE DISINFECTION
After you have selected the size/duration, get ready to initiate the disinfection process and immediately leave the room. You will have 10 seconds to leave the room - but don‘t worry, the lamp will not start the disinfection process as long as there is movement in the room.
When you are ready, press the button again and immediately start leaving the room.
Orange LED indicator will start blinking and the lamp will continuously beep. After 10 seconds, disinfection process will begin if no movement is detected in the room.
You can abort the disinfection process by pressing or rotating the button, as well as by movement.
Note: If the Bacteo Towers detects a fault within the UV-C lamp or internal electronics, the disinfection process will not initiate, or it will stop immediately if in progress. The device will continuously beep and orange LED indicator will blink to inform the user of malfunction.
4. STARTING THE DISINFECTION
When the disinfection process is complete, lamp will emit a long beep and go into the standby mode. Green LED indicator will light up on the right side of the main interface. You can now turn off the lamp or move it to another part of the room by gripping the metal top of the lamp.
Note: Bacteo is 100% ozone-free, and it will not generate any ozone (which is toxic to your health). You might smell an odor after the disinfection process, but don’t worry – it’s not ozone. It is a smell of dust and other small organic particles killed during the disinfection – so we recommend ventilating the room after the disinfection is finished.
