Users can view the battery status of their Samsara sensors (ie environmental monitors, door sensors, and cargo sensors) in the Sensor Health Report on their dashboard. More information on the Sensor Health Report can be found here.
If battery level readings are low, batteries are likely to require replacement. Guidance for battery replacement is as follows. Please follow all instructions in a safe area outside of any building or vehicle away from any combustible material:
Recommended Battery for Replacements
Samsara recommends batteries when replacing existing batteries in Samsara sensors.
Sensor Battery Replacement
Step 1: With a Phillips screw driver, remove back enclosure.
Step 2: Inspect the device and ensure it does not show any evidence of water ingress, corrosion or physical damage. If the device does indicate potential incidences of water ingress, corrosion, or physical damage, do not replace batteries and request/purchase a replacement device.
Step 3: If the device does not indicate incidences of water ingress, corrosion, or physical damage, replace the existing battery with the battery recommended above. Take care to not puncture, crush, or short circuit the battery during this process. Be sure to correctly position the battery. Positive and negative indicators can be found inside the device and on the battery. Do not use alternate battery types.
Step 4: Once the battery is securely placed, return the back enclosure to its original position and lock it in place with the devices’ screws.
Discarding Used Batteries
Dispose used batteries safely and in accordance with local environmental laws.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify lithium batteries or Samsara monitors. Users replace batteries into Samsara sensors at their own risk. Refer to the replacement battery’s Safety Datasheet for more safety information about lithium iron disulfide batteries. Energizer’s Safety Datasheet for its L91 Ultimate Lithium batteries is available .
To reduce likelihood of possible injury, replace batteries with a battery type recommended by Samsara and follow the directions above and reference the documentation for further information.
Failure to read and follow the instructions above may result in fire, personal injury, and damage to property.
