What should I do if I need to relocate my Conserv monitoring system?

Thinking about moving your gateway or sensors to another site? Go for it! Here are some tips to pay attention to.

If you're planning to change the location of your gateway and/or sensors, follow these steps to make sure everything reconnects properly.

 

1. Moving a gateway within the same location

If you'd like to try and get a better gateway signal by relocating the gateway in a single location, simply unplug your gateway from its power source and/or network cable and plug it in at its new location. At this stage you may need to evaluate the connectivity of the gateway by keeping a sensor nearby to determine if you're getting regular readings (every 15 minutes). Once you've confirmed that the gateway has a strong connection, it is fine to move the sensors to their space. It may behoove you to leave an "observation" in the software about the timing of all of this for the sensor you used to test the gateway so you can be sure to consider that when you're looking at the data. Once the gateway is online the sensors should automatically reconnect with the gateway within 15 minutes (if you give the sensors a little shake they may reconnect sooner).

 

2. Moving a gateway and sensors to an entirely different location

If you're moving your entire Conserv system to a new location (sensors and gateway) you may want to record an "observation" about the move for all of the impacted sensors. Once you're in your new location, plug in the gateway first and wait until you see the blinking green light. At this stage you may need to evaluate the connectivity of the gateway by keeping a sensor nearby to determine if you're getting regular readings (every 15 minutes). Once the gateway is online the sensors should automatically reconnect with the gateway within 15 minutes (if you give the sensor a little shake it may reconnect sooner).
