Frequently-Asked Questions

When attempting to modify settings in the 'Water Meter Setting' section of the Yolink FlowSmart Meter (5007), why are changes not being saved? 

After adjusting the settings in 'Water Meter Settings,' users must press the set button on the Yolink water meter to upload the changes.      

Is the water flow meter compatible with Home Assistant? Additionally, are there any plans to support Google Home in the future?

The water meter equipment can be integrated with Home Assistant, but Google Action does not currently support it.

How much time does it take for the water meter to send the next pulse count and update the water meter reading? How often does the flow meter (YS5007) reading update?

The reading displayed on the app differs from the reading on the device itself, refreshing once every hour. Each revolution of the mechanical water meter triggers a pulse signal sent to the Yolink FlowSmart Meter, ensuring consistent readings between the two meters. As for app synchronization data, updates are sent out every hour.

What is the graph that appears in the app for the water meter? 

The graph uses time on the horizontal axis and water consumption on the vertical axis. It visually represents the water usage pattern over a specific timeframe. When water usage stops, the vertical axis resets to zero.

I own a smart water meter but the meter and the app doesn’t have the same data. How can I fix this and sync the data readings? 

To sync the readings on your YoLink Water Meter with the app, please follow these steps:

1. Open the YoLink app.

2. Navigate to the Details page of your YoLink Water Meter.

3. Press "Water Meter Advanced Settings".

4. In the General section, click on ‘Sync Meter Reading’.

5. Edit the 'Meter Reading' to match the reading on your physical meter, then save the changes.

6. On the 'Water Meter Settings' page, press the checkmark in the upper right corner to save the changes.

7. Finally, manually press the ‘set’ button on your YoLink Water Meter to update the data.

Following these steps should ensure that the data on your YoLink Water Meter and the app are synchronized accurately.

Why does my daily water consumption shown seem to differ from the consumption displayed on the bar graph?

This discrepancy may occur if your device was disconnected from the hub at some point. When this happens, the hourly data on the bar graph is not recorded, though the water consumption is still tracked locally on the device. Once the connection is restored, the total water consumption is updated, but the hourly consumption data remains missing.

How frequently are these two data sets refreshed for 'Today' and 'This Month'?

The data is refreshed every hour at most. 

When configuring the Yolink FlowSmart Meter (YS5007), how do I determine the appropriate water meter?

If your water valve size is 1.5 inches or larger, set the water meter equivalent to 1.

If your water valve size is smaller than 1.5 inches, set the water meter equivalent to 0.1.

Is it possible for the meter (YS5006 and YS5007) to operate independently, showing information through the app?

Unfortunately, the meter cannot display information through the app on its own. It needs to be connected to the meter sensor for that capability.

Could you elaborate on the "Advanced Water Meter Settings" available for the Yolink FlowSmart Water Meter?

On the 'Water Meter Advanced Settings' page, you'll encounter two significant sections relevant to your query: 'Leak Detection' and 'Overflow Protection.'

In the 'Leak Detection' segment, you can define a threshold for alert notifications based on water flow volume. By establishing a limit for a specific number of gallons, you'll receive alerts whenever this threshold is surpassed. This feature proves especially valuable during periods of absence, such as when adhering to an "away" schedule.

Furthermore, within the 'Overflow Protection' section, you're presented with the opportunity to configure parameters for ongoing water usage. If water usage continues beyond the predetermined value, the Yolink water meter will promptly send you an alert notification. Moreover, you can specify either the quantity of gallons or the duration in minutes of uninterrupted water flow that would trigger an alert message.

The option labeled "water meter equivalent" is inactive and cannot be modified. I am unable to select it by clicking.

  1. To proceed with this adjustment, please first navigate to the YoLink Water Meter device 'Details' page.
  2. Within the 'Details' page, locate and select "Water Meter Advanced Settings."
  3. Next, choose "Reset Meter" from the options provided.
  4. Within the reset options, you'll find the setting to "Change the Water Meter Equivalent." Click on this option.
  5. Input the desired equivalent value for the water meter.
  6. Once you've made the necessary changes, please ensure to manually press the ‘set’ button on your Yolink Water Meter to update the data.
