Connecting the Omron SC-150 Scale to Allie on iOS

Background

Allie features Bluetooth integration with the Omron SC-150 commercial weight scale. This guide provides best practices to ensure seamless transfer of weight data from the scale to the Allie iOS application.

In order to pair the device, please make sure you have done the following during the installation process, completing all of the following:

    • Given Allie access to Bluetooth
    • Allowed Notifications from Allie
    • Turned Bluetooth ON for your phone

For best results, we recommend making sure that you are using the most recent versions of Allie and that your phone's operating system is up to date. More information on checking your settings/updating Allie can be found here.

You will also need to make sure you see an option for "Weight" in Allie. If you do not see this option, please with your technician or Healthcare Provider to make sure that have set you up correctly

    1. The scale display will quickly flash and then go blank - you may not see this
  2. Once the scale display is blank, open the Allie application and go to the Settings menu

  11. You can now tap "Done" to return to the Connected Devices page and will see "SC-150" listed underneath Weight Scale. It is okay if the scale is "Not Connected" as long as you see "SC-150"

Note: If you tap "Done" before seeing the OK box on the scale, you may see an "Err" message on the scale. However, the scale should actually be connected so weight measurements will be added to Allie.

Wait for the scale screen to go blank before proceeding with taking your weight. If you have issues at any point in time with the pairing process, please start over from the beginning.

How to Take a Weight Measurement

  1. Launch the Allie app
  2. Stand on the scale
  3. The display will fluctuate until it determines the weight. At this point it will flash three times.
  4. You should then see the Bluetooth icon below your weight measurement

    1. If you do not see the icon, make sure that Allie is open. If it has closed, open it, and the weight measurement should come through soon
  5. Keep the Allie application open until you see the new weight measurement has been added to your Allie profile for the day
