Saving data straight to the internet
Clever Logger is different
Traditional temperature loggers store data in their internal memory. This means that, in order to read that data, the user needs to regularly download the logger’s contents to their computer.
Clever Loggers are connected directly to the internet via a Gateway. So the temperature in your fridge or freezer is recorded and saved to the internet every few minutes.
Learning the jargon
Let’s start with the basics – learning your way around the different parts of Clever Logger.
On the left is the temperature-only logger. On the right is the temperature and humidity logger.
The loggers measure the temperature (and humidity, depending on the model) and broadcast the readings using Bluetooth, like an iPod broadcasting songs to a speaker.
The gateway is the link between your loggers and the internet.
The gateway hears the data being broadcast by the loggers and saves it to your online account every few minutes, giving you a live log of temperatures.
Gateways need power and an internet connection – either with a network cable or using your office wi-fi.
Every aspect of your Clever Logger system is managed through a special website we call the Dashboard.
Here you can add gateways and loggers, configure alarms, create reports and manage users. Because this dashboard is just a website, there’s no special software to install or update. You can log in on any type of computer using any browser from anywhere. You can even use a tablet or iPad.
The address is cloud.cleverlogger.com.
Alarm / Alert
You can set upper and lower temperature limits for each of your loggers. For instance, with a vaccine fridge, you would set the lower alarm limit to 2°C and the upper alarm to 8°C. If the temperatures went outside these bounds you would be notified. You can also set alarms to notify you if the power goes out.
The Organisation is main entity that controls the account.
Clever Logger is really scalable. It works brilliantly for small organisations with just a single logger, but it is also capable of handling large organisations with multiple sites and multiple loggers at each site.
Organisation-level users have access to all the sites.
A site is a division within an organisation. It might be in the same building or on the other side of the country.
Each site can have different users with different permissions. So users at Site A cannot see data from Site B, and so on.
Users are defined by their email address – each user must have a unique email address. This address is used for login and for notification.
Users can have different levels of access to the various functions of Clever Logger, ranging from Admin (who can do everything) to Viewer (who can only view results).
A Location is what we call a logger that has been started and configured. Before it is configured, it is just a device.
Clever Logger is easy to set up. Allow 10-15 minutes for these four starting steps
Adding your first Gateway
The next step is to add the first Gateway to your Organisation. The Gateway is the part that connects to the internet.
You can use ethernet (network cable) or wi-fi to connect.
Creating your first Location
Once the Gateway is connected, we should be able to see the Loggers.
You can configure each logger with alarm limits and notification groups. We call a configured logger a Location.
Clever Logger reports are sent to your email inbox automatically.
Our report wizard will walk you step by step through the process.
You can create as many reports as you like.
Once you’re up and running, it’s easy to customise your Clever Logger setup
