An essential component of this system, the gateway provides the link between your loggers and the internet.

The gateway is the link between the loggers and the internet.
The gateway is a breeze to set up. In most cases, simply plugging in the ethernet cable and connecting the power is all the set-up you need.

The gateway offers a theoretical 50 meters of line-of-sight range to your loggers. In the real world, this will be reduced due to various factors.
Walls, particularly metal walls such as those on a coolroom or commercial freezer, significantly reduce the range.
A more accurate estimate is probably 20-30 meters, or two rooms away from the logger.
If your loggers are a long way apart, you may need more than one gateway.
NOTE: Alerts need to be configured, but it’s a very simple process that we can help you with if you need it.
* NOTE: when the logger is out of range of the gateway or the gateway loses its connection to the internet, you can receive a notification, but you will not receive temperature alerts.
Yes. This system requires a gateway in order to save temperature data to the internet. However, one gateway can handle connections from dozens of loggers at once, provided they are all in range.
No. The logger transmits data using Bluetooth. This is completely different to the wi-fi connection.
When the power to the gateway goes out, the internet server will recognise that it has lost connection to the gateway and signal an alert.
Depending on how you have configured your account, this can do a number of things including sending an email and sending a notification to your phone.
Your loggers will continue to log temperatures and save that data to their internal memory. It can save over 15,000 readings – about a month of readings five minutes apart.
When the connection from the gateway to the internet is re-established, the server will trigger another set of actions. The data saved in each logger’s memory will be uploaded to the internet so there should be no gaps in the record.
The battery is a fairly standard 3V coin-cell battery (Model CR2450). You can buy them at supermarkets, pharmacies, hardware stores, etc for a few dollars.
The battery lasts 12 to 18 months. After 12 months, the system will send out a low battery alert to remind you to change the battery.
Replacing the battery is quite a quick process, but it can be a bit fiddly.
