    No. Therma runs on LoRa and a 4G cellular connection. All hubs ship with a pre-activated AT&T SIM card.

    LoRa® is a long range, low bandwidth radio network. Although range highly depends on the environment or obstructions in a given location, a single hub or base station can cover entire cities or hundreds of square kilometers.

    LoRaWAN™ builds on top of LoRa® with additional technologies including adaptive data rate, quality of service, transmission guarantees and other systems, which automatically compensate for dense and noisy urban deployments.

    In other words, LoRaWAN™ is the ideal technology for ensuring full coverage throughout any environment. Performance is proven to exceed that of bluetooth or WiFi.

    A properly working Hub will be plugged into the wall outlet, switched on (power switch is located on the bottom of the device) and all three LED lights at the bottom of the device will be continuously green.

    Smart Alerts intelligently adjust your alert temperature thresholds to help prevent excessive notifications. When enabled, Smart Alerts automatically increase or decrease your temperature threshold one degree at a time (with a maximum of 5 degrees). Once the 5 degree threshold is reached, Therma proactively recommends adjusting the temperature of your equipment by a few degrees, or making a preventative maintenance service call.

    To enable Smart Alerts, select the brain icon to the right of the sensor name on the Sensors page. The icon will be blue when Smart Alerts are enabled.

    If a device misses a check in or if a hub loses power, it stores all data locally and bundles it with the next attempted send. No data is ever lost.

    Therma sensors use AA batteries. We recommend using lithium batteries for best performance. To replace your batteries:

    1. Fully unscrew and remove the 4 screws located on the front of your sensor with a Phillips screwdriver, and gently remove the top plate of the sensor.
    2. Remove both AA batteries and replace with new batteries, while making sure to match the positive and negative ends of the battery to the labeled positive and negative sides of the battery holder.
    3. Place the top plate back onto the sensor making sure all 4 corners and sides are tightly aligned, and then screw back in the 4 screws.

    You should only replace your hub’s SIM card when instructed to do so by a Therma support team member. To replace your hub’s SIM card, follow the video or PDF guide below.

    It is more important than ever for companies to automate their record keeping practices. 21 CFR Part 11 was developed by the FDA in 1997 to keep your records safe and secure in the digital age.

    Therma Meets Electronic Record Authenticity Requirements

    Authenticity requirements outlined by 21 CFR Part 11 include:

    • System consistently performs as designed
    • System must have the capacity to identify invalid or altered records
    • Data is encrypted, stored redundantly, and cannot be modified after recording
    • Data is logged and time-stamped
    • All data is backed up over distributed databases

    Therma meets each of these guidelines. The readings taken by Therma sensors and stored cannot be altered once the data is recorded. Sensors can be ordered with traceable NIST calibration certificates. All data for each specific sensor is logged and time-stamped.

    Therma Meets Electronic Record Integrity Requirements

    21 CFR Part 11 requirements are as follows:

    • Readable copies of records can be produced without impact on the original record
    • Sensor data can be graphed
    • Sensor data is time stamped
    • Sensor data can be exported in spreadsheet/text form
    • Sensor data can be exported using a secure API

    All sensor data is graphed and time stamped. These records can also be exported. Therma offers a secure open API. API calls can be accessed by going to https://api.hellotherma.com/docs/.

    Therma Meets Confidentiality Requirements

    Therma meets confidentiality requirements of CFR 21 Part 11 by satisfying the following requirements:

    • A username and password are needed for access
    • Roles-based access can also be given to authorized users
    • Logged data cannot be accessed by unauthorized users
    • Customer data is separated by accounts

    No data on Therma can be accessed by unauthorized users. Username and password combinations are not shared between other users.  Therma is a secure cloud-based portal. Roles for multiple users on an account can be assigned by administrators.
