Commissioning testo Saveris 2

Do I need to install software for testo Saveris 2?

No, no software needs to be installed on your local computer. In order to access your data and use the testo Saveris 2 system for humidity and temperature monitoring you just need an internet browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari) and functional internet access.

Is my current PC adequate for testo Saveris 2?

A standard PC or laptop with internet access and a current browser is all you need to operate the testo Saveris 2 system for humidity and temperature monitoring.

Do I need a smart phone to be able to use testo Saveris 2?

You can access the system from any terminal device with an operational internet browser that allows you to access the internet. A smart phone is only one of the options and not a necessity for operating testo Saveris 2.

What do I need to be able to start using testo Saveris 2 (WLAN, router, etc.)?

To commence humidity and temperature monitoring with testo Saveris 2 a local wireless network is required (WLAN). The local network is created by a router. This also enables the internet connection (via cable). Local WLAN and internet access are absolutely necessary for operating testo Saveris 2.

May I also use testo Saveris 2 in my own infrastructure?

Yes, you may use the system within your own WLAN infrastructure. An existing local WLAN infrastructure and WLAN internet connection is actually a necessary prerequisite for operating testo Saveris 2.

Measuring locations and wireless range

Can I monitor several rooms with testo Saveris 2?

Of course you can use testo Saveris 2 to carry out humidity and temperature monitoring in several rooms. Please make sure that WLAN is available and the reception is strong enough in the rooms being monitored. You may have to extend the transmission range from/to your router using repeaters.

I would like to measure at three different locations. Do I also need three systems?

Testo Saveris 2 allows you to collate separate locations in one single system. The prerequisite for this is that local WLAN and internet access are available at each location. You can then collate the different locations in one “system” in your account.

What is the wireless range like for testo Saveris 2?

The wireless ranges of the individual wireless data loggers correspond to those of typical WLAN terminal devices. Ultimately, the range very much depends on the local conditions, installed materials (e.g. wooden ceiling/floor as opposed to reinforced concrete), and any other potential disruptive influences.

What happens, if the power supply or WLAN fails?

The wireless data loggers are battery operated and equipped with a memory for 10,000 measured values. If your WLAN should fail due to a local power cut, the wireless data loggers will continue measuring at the defined measuring rate until the network is available again. All of the measurement data is then transmitted to the server. If the server is unable to receive measurement data due to a power cut, you can set up your system to automatically send you a warning message.

 Access to measurement data and data security

Where is my data stored?

Your data is backed up in the cloud by Testo. This means that it is safely stored on a server in a computer centre. This is subject to extremely high standards in terms of data availability and your data is reliably protected against unauthorised access.

Where are the servers located and which data protection regulations apply there?

Different servers are used to store your data depending on where your system is located. For customers within Europe, there are servers located in Germany; that is, German data protection regulations apply to these.

How long will my data be stored?

Testo stores data for the period stipulated in the Contract. You may of course download your data from humidity or temperature monitoring at any time and save it locally beyond this period.

Using wireless data loggers

How many wireless data loggers may I connect up?

In principle, the number of wireless data loggers you connect up is unlimited. However, the number of wireless data loggers you are allowed to use in your account depends on the licence selected (e.g. 1 - 10 wireless data loggers).

Which parameters can I monitor with testo Saveris 2?

At the moment, wireless data loggers with sensors for temperature and relative humidity are available for testo Saveris 2. The measuring range will be successively extended to include relevant parameters in future.

Does the testo Saveris 2 hardware (wireless data loggers) belong to me?

Your purchase of the wireless data loggers means these belong to you.

May I monitor my food store rooms with testo Saveris 2? Is the system certified according to DIN EN 12830?

The wireless data loggers T1 and T2 (2-channel temperature with optional door contact logging) of your testo Saveris 2 system have been tested and certified in accordance with DIN EN 12830. You can therefore also use these to monitor the temperature in your cold food storage rooms safely and in compliance with standards.

Will I be notified when the data loggers' batteries start running low?

In addition to the option of being warned when individual limit values are exceeded, you will also be notified about changing the wireless data loggers' batteries when these start running low. Notification will be, for example, by e-mail.
