In addition to enabling flexible alarm notifications, the CX Gateway can automate the process of downloading data from one or more InTemp loggers within range either at fixed intervals—such as daily, weekly or monthly—or upon the arrival of shipments. This saves time, eliminates the need to remove loggers to download them, and prevents missed downloads of critical vaccine storage temperature data.
