In this section you'll find answers to the most asked questions. If you can't find the answer to your question or the problem persists, please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Sensor won't pair

- Make sure you have activated the sensor less than 3 minutes ago by marking a basket.
- Make sure you are close enough to the sensor (within 12 metres).
- Check that Bluetooth and location services are enabled on your phone.
- Check that the sensor is not connected to another phone.
- Check that your app has been updated.
- The sensor's CR2032 button battery may be flat. Change it.

If none of these solutions works, please contact Support by completing the form at the bottom of the page.

The battery runs down too quickly

A sensor paddle may have remained on.Check that none of the three sensor paddles are caught in the net and that they are working properly. 
If your sensor is not working, follow the storage recommendations to conserve battery life.

The cords are worn or broken

You can replace the elastic cords by ordering new ones from the Decathlon website.

Identifying a defective detector unit/sensor paddle

If you notice a drop in reliability or problems with activating your sensor, then your switch/sensor paddle may be defective.

To rectify a defective switch/sensor paddle, you should first of all connect your sensor to your app. If you are unable to do this first step, please go to the section entitled “Sensor won't pair”.

Once the sensor is paired with your phone, launch the “free training” game in “free” mode.

Activate the first sensor paddle with your hand, taking care not to hit it too hard. If the sensor paddle and sensor detect a direct basket or that another type of basket has been scored, then it shows that they are working. If, after several attempts, this doesn't happen, it means that the detector unit/sensor paddle is defective. When testing, you should leave more than a second between any attempt to activate the sensor paddle in question.

Repeat the same process for each of the three paddles.

Defective and broken paddles and sensors can be replaced by ordering new ones at the Decathlon website.

Yes, the product is IPx4 certified, which means you can leave it on your hoop in all weathers. However, it is not resistant to pressure hoses or immersion in water.

Can you play without the net? 

Yes, the sensor is attached to the ring by six elastic cords, which act as a net and guide the ball by the sensor.

What is the lifespan of the product?

The lifespan of the sensor's CR2032 battery is estimated at two years on the basis of 10 hours of play a week throughout the year (at a rate of 200 baskets scored per hour).
The lifespan may vary depending on the quality of the CR2032 battery used and the storage conditions when the product is not in use.
Please note that the battery should ideally be stored at a temperature of between 15 and 25°C when the sensor is not in use.
