airpointer APP users, pls do an update

Dear airpointer APP users, please do an software update of your airpointer.
After a major change at the certification body we use, it turns out that I had chosen one parameter wrong in my linout software. This stops the communication between the airpointer and the APP server. With a software upgrade this problem is solved and you will have the normal behavior of the airpointer app again.
With best regards, Andreas

By today we need to say good bye to the old SuSE portal

A little history:

Back in 2005 we created a portal service to make connections to airpointer possible using a dynamic IP address. The second function was to speed up communication with the airpointer by coping data from the airpointer to server. With the today’s speed of communication, the last “speed up” customer remained, skipped the old portal service two years ago. Build with the old SuSE of that time and the way the system is working, this server is outdated long ago. Starting in 2009 we are working on a modern Linux solution (a Debian distribution), since 2013 we install this version of software on all airpointer. At the same time the new portal was introduced, in a much easier way to work with. At this time, our SuSE software stack and portal was announced to be discontinued.

What is going on:

Our plan was to turn off the first, SuSE based, portal by end of the year because more and more browsers and other tools are not accepting the old-style security and encryption tools of the server anymore. Unfortunately, a technical issue stops the server a few months earlier than planned.

Are you involved?

If you are using portal.recordum.com to connect to your instrument you are involved. All other customers just need to wait a few days until a update is possible again.

AQI = Air Quality Index

Since a while we have a solution for all customers searching for a easy way to display the results of the air quality measurements to the general public in an understandable form. We implemented an air quality index based on USEPA, EN or German regulation/calculations. The user can choose one of these default setups and can configure this default to her/his needs. You can find an example on our “Garden” airpointer here:

Garden Airpointer AQI

An example how easy the airpointer AQI page can be integrated into your institute’s web page using iframe is shown here:

 AQI Example Site 

The complete documentation how to setup the AQI to your needs you can find here:

recordum_AQI.pdf

If you want this option on your airpointer or your airQlog please ask your distributor for an offer, you will see it is affordable.

With best regards, Andreas

The airpointer APP is available

Since some weeks the airpointer APP is available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

apps.apple.com
play.google.com

This app helps the user to have a fast overview over his airpointers. For each machine you see the connectivity and measuring system status, but also if maintenance is needed or an alarm is active. The user also can choose a few parameters to be directly displayed on the app. Because SMS has an undefined runtime by definitions, we use the APP as an additional alarming device.

How the configuration of the airpointer needs to be done to work with the app you find here: https://www.airpointer.tech/setup-for-the-airpointer-app/

Please understand that each user of the app has to be registered as user at the airpointer also, that’s the only way to make sure that only authorized persons can use the airpointer data. Just by removing the user account on the airpointer also stops the connection to the user’s mobile device, for those who are leaving your organization.

We hope this app makes the live of the airpointer users a bit easier,

With best regards, Andreas
