Data Capture Frequently Asked Questions

How to run Data Capture software as a Windows System Service
This link is to a tutorial on how to run our free Data Capture software, that allows you to program all of our monitors and send emails and text messages when an alarm occurs, as a Windows Service.

Before installing a Temperature Guard, verify that your network has:
A DHCP server.  The Temperature Guard must obtain an initial IP address from the server.
Ports 10001 (2711h) and 30718 (77FEh) are not blocked.

Sending Email
I get errors when attempting to send emails.  After verifying all settings for your SMTP host such as Outgoing Port and Authentication, make sure that your Anti-Virus software is not blocking port 25 or in some other way preventing emails from leaving your computer.

Resetting a device from a static IP address back to DHCP.
If you are moving a Temperature Guard configured with a static IP address to a network where this static IP address will not function, you should reset the Temperature Guard back to DHCP mode before the move. 

1.       Run the Temperature Guard IP Address Setup program.

2.       Click the Find all Temperature Guard servers on the network button to find all of the Temperature Guard devices on your network.  A list of their IP address’ are displayed.  Only Temperature Guard’s IP addresses are displayed.

3.       Click on the IP address of the device you want to reset back to DHCP mode.  The selected IP address will turn yellow.

4.       Click on the Reset the Selected Server back to DHCP Mode button.  You will be prompted to confirm this change.  Click OK to proceed. 

5.       The program will again find all Temperature Guard devices on your network.  The program will confirm that the IP address has be reset from a static IP to DHCP mode.

 A device which is not able to be found on the network or communicated with may have invalid network address settings and need to be restored to DHCP mode.  This can be achieved by using the “Reset Device to DHCP” found under the advanced menu.

 Advanced Tools
Under the Advanced menu option there are three advanced tools to allow you to:
·  Set the IP Address, Gateway Address, and Subnet Mask via web
·  Manually Set an IP Address when no DHCP server is present or when you can not locate the device on the network
·  Test Communications to a Temperature Guard device

Set IP, Gateway, Subnet via Web
This feature is for IT professionals and is to be used only if it is necessary to change the subnet mask.  This procedure is unnecessary for standard networks.  Verify that you have the latest version of Java before running.

1.       Click on the Server Properties button to display the Server Properties.

2.       Verify the correct IP Address setting

3.       Enter the Subnet Mask
-Verify that the Subnet Mask is correct before clicking Update Settings button.  If an incorrect Subnet Mask is entered the TG device will be unable to communicate.

4.       Enter the Gateway Address
-Verify that the Gateway Address is correct before clicking Update Settings button.  If an incorrect Gateway Address is entered the TG device will be unable to communicate.

5.       Click the Update Settings button.

6.       Close the browser window.

 Manually Set IP
In networks without a DHCP server or when you are unable to find a Temperature Guard device on the network, it may be useful to set a static IP address manually.  You will need the MAC address of the device you are communicating with.    This can be found on the white label on the network enabled Temperature Guard device itself. 

1.       Enter the MAC address of the device in the window and click OK.

2.       Enter the static IP address you wish to give the device and click OK.

3.       Confirm the static IP address and click OK.

4.       Depending on your network configuration, the device may or may not show up in the device listing now.

5.       Perform the Test Communication function to verify IP Address functionality.  If Test Communication fails, utilize the ping command by opening a command prompt and entering ping (where is the IP address you gave the device.)
