A Basic Alert'sRx package consists of 1) the Gateway, 2) the Gateway wall mounted power supply, 3) the Gateway ethernet cable to connect to your Internet Router, 4) the Sensor, 5) 2 "AA" Alkaline batteries for the Sensor, 6) a Phillips screwdriver and 7) a "How to Get Started" pamphlet. The How to Get Started will show you step by step how to install and sign into your system.
Remove the cover from the Sensor using the supplied screwdriver and install the two "AA" batteries into the battery holder. Be careful with the polarity, ensure the + sign of the battery lines up with the + sign of the battery holder. If both batteries are installed correctly, the BLUE power LED will flash. Reattach the cover with the four screws.
As soon as the batteries are installed, the Sensor is ON and operational
The Sensor is pre-programmed for a Refrigerator temperature profile. There are two alarm thresholds, the "Warning" and the "Critical" for both external T1 and internal T2 temperature sensors. These are preset for a "Warning" alarm threshold of 10 °C and a "Critical" alarm threshold of 12 °C. Since the Sensor is activated at room temperature, it is normal for the sensor to go into alarm until it cools off inside the Refrigerator or Freezer.
No. The sensor is totally self contained. Your refrigerator or freezer door seals will NOT be broken to ruin it's integrity.
The Sensor should be treated as part of your inventory. The Sensor is placed on the shelf along with your inventory. The Alert'sRx external T1 sensor will measure the air inside the refrigerator or freezer, while internal T2 sensor will behave like your product inside its protective wrapper, whether it's plastic, cardboard, or a combination of both. Typically the temperature inside of a protective package will respond slower to temperature changes than the ambient air.
The Gateway is located close to the pharmacy's internet router. Typically this would be inside the office or mechanical room. Place the Gateway in a convenient location (on a bookshelf, or attach to a wall), and connect the wall adapter to the gateway. Plug the wall adapter into any standard power outlet. Connect the Gateway to the Router with the supplied ethernet cable. Most modern internet routers have 4 "Ports" (jacks) on the back, any one of these ports will work.
Yes. The Sensor communicates with the Gateway wirelessly, however the Gateway must be connected to the Router with the supplied ethernet cable.
The Gateway Power LED will turn on BLUE and the LCD display will show a Welcome message. That is all that is required.
If the Gateway goes into alarm, that is because the Sensor, placed inside the refrigerator has not cooled off yet into the normal operating range
The Gateway has one button on the face just right of the LCD display. Pressing this button will silence the audible beeping.
The Gateway will go out of alarm as soon as the Sensor's temperatures are within the specified alarm thresholds.
