Install free version without trial license




I've tried to bypass the trial mode multiple times and aim to directly use the free version with it's 100 sensors cap. But it seems that the completion of the setup requires entering a trial license key.

Is there a way to start off with the free version directly?

I am afraid that is not possible, sorry. It is necessary to enter a trial key first. Once the trial period of 30 days has expired, your installation will be automatically switched to freeware version.

Best regards
