Getting your readings on Intellin#

Once you have connected your app or a device, the readings will start showing in Intellin automatically.

Few important points to keep in mind:

  • PAST DATA
    Any past/historical data won't appear on Intellin, only inputs from the date you have connected your app or device to Intellin will show up.

  • SYNC FREQUENCY
    It may take around 20 mins for your inputs from other apps or devices to show up on the Intellin app.

Important

Allow a few moments to pair your device - it may take a while for the first time to pull your information (e.g. blood glucose readings stored on your blood glucose meter). Do not do anything until the pairing is completed.

  1. Once pairing is completed you will see a screen with your device details: when the device has been synchronised, what was the last reading etc.
