The Ontoto Connect Android & iOS application provides a gateway to communicate with the loggers & their data, providing customers with a fast and efficient way of initially installing and configuring their device & giving data insights at a glance. Click here to download the application for android. The iOS version can be found under “Ontoto Connect” on the iOS App Store.

Configuration Options:

  • Offline configuration is used when setting up the logger initially. Your mobile needs to be within a 10 m radius of the logger
  • Online configuration is used when the logger is active. For Example, the reporting cycle of the logger can be configured remotely without going to the site. Our loggers always communicate with the Ontoto server via API to receive updates such as configuration changes and firmware updates.
