You’re done! From now on, you can use your Kinsa QuickCare thermometer to take temperature readings independently, whether the Kinsa app is open or not.

If the Kinsa app is open and your QuickCare thermometer is within range (about 10 feet) new readings will appear immediately after they are taken.

If the Kinsa app is not open, new readings will be sent to the app in the background every 10 to 15 minutes to save the thermometer’s battery life and when your phone is within range.
