Basics for Your IT Department

Wi-Fi* or Cellular Connectivity Enables You to:

• View the location of each of your AEDs in the REALConnectTM platform, organize them by assigned users, locations, or labels, and configure settings.

• View the health status of your AEDs and get notified if any devices need attention

- Devices check in daily

• Upload and access Emergency Data Incident Reports

• Send alerts to 911 when the AED is in use

• Download remote software updates

Connecting to Wi-Fi*

We recommend using a Wi-Fi network with your Avive Connect AED for improved bandwidth and to avoid inconsistent Cellular coverage.

To connect the AED to Wi-Fi, use the touchscreen to navigate to Settings, then select your desired Wi-Fi network.

At this time, the Avive Connect AED can connect to password-protected WPA/WPA2 Wi-Fi networks.

A password must be entered on the user interface. When connected to Wi-Fi, the devices communicate over Ports 443. A MAC Address is provided for whitelisting if desired.

Please note that location data is improved by connection and/or proximity to Wi-Fi networks with unmasked MAC addresses. If the security settings for Wi-Fi networks mask MAC addresses, the Avive Connect AED will rely on cellular or GPS to report the AED’s location.

*The Avive Connect AED does not require Wi-Fi, cellular, or any other communication to provide its lifesaving medical treatment.

The AED will be able to provide instructions to a user on how to use the device, analyze a patient's heart rhythm, and deliver defibrillation to that patient in cardiac arrest regardless of its connectivity status or lack thereof.
