The most convenient way to add all power tools is to use the app.* Simply scan the barcode on the power tool or manually enter the serial number. You can use this method to add products from other manufacturers too.
*Setup can of course also be performed using the STIHL connected Portal.
Now take the STIHL Smart Connector out of its packaging and carefully open the battery compartment using the enclosed battery compartment key. Remove the locking plate under the button cell. You can now see the data matrix code, which you will use in the next step to associate the STIHL Smart Connector with the relevant product within the app.
You can quickly and easily set up the STIHL Smart Connector 2 A with just a few movements. The key steps are briefly described below:
First activate the button cell. Attach the STIHL Smart Connector 2 A and start up the power tool.
You can now pair a power tool which has been added in the STIHL app with your Smart Connector. To do this: Start the process by using the corresponding button in the app and then scanning the data matrix code revealed in step 4. Now place the button cell back into the STIHL Smart Connector and close the battery compartment.
Press the button. Following pairing, you can start using the power tool.
Now attach the STIHL Smart Connector to the power tool you paired it with in the previous step. In the STIHL connected App you will find instructions on where and how best to attach the STIHL Smart Connector to each fully supported power tool . Mounting should be done either by means of the screws included with the STIHL Smart Connector, or the adhesive surface on the back of it. As a general rule, the STIHL Smart Connector should be a maximum of 10 cm away from your power tool’s engine or motor.
Now you can manage your power tools in STIHL connected. The STIHL Smart Connector collects power tool data and synchronises it with your smartphone. From there, the data is transmitted to the STIHL Cloud together with the location*.
*Location transmission active provided GPS is enabled on your mobile device.
The STIHL Smart Connector can be retrofitted to STIHL products and third-party products. The full functional scope of the STIHL Smart Connector is only guaranteed with fully supported STIHL products. For fully supported STIHL products, the attachment position for the Smart Connector is predefined. In addition, the recommended product-specific maintenance instructions for these products are already stored in the system.
For each fully supported STIHL product, the position where the Smart Connector should ideally be attached has been predefined. During the pairing process, this position is displayed in the STIHL connected App, and in the STIHL connected Portal in the instructional video. In addition, the recommended product-specific maintenance instructions for these products are already stored in the system.
Partially supported products can also be connected to the Smart Connector. However, there are no predefined positions for attaching the Smart Connector to these products, and also no predefined product-specific maintenance instructions.
The STIHL Smart Connector 2 A is compatible with a select number of STIHL professional cordless products such as the FSA 135 and HLA 135.
Machines send power tool data automatically, locations are documented, and stocktaking is performed at the push of a button. This allows you to focus on other projects.
Determining the right fleet size for you by means a fact-based approach, reducing downtime, and avoiding power tool loss means you can work more efficiently and save money.
