  3. Log in with your Cropster Cafe account if you aren't logged in already.
  4. Press + Add machine, and add all the required information about the machine you are connecting.
    💡 If our system recognizes the serial number or model of a machine you are trying to connect, you will be asked to update this machine, rather than adding a new one.
  5. Once you have filled in all the required information, press Add and connect equipment.
  6. You will now receive a green checkmark message saying "Machine Connected". 

It takes roughly two minutes for your machine to show as "Online", as the software waits for the first heartbeat message from your machine. Your machine should show as "Online" upon refreshing your page.
