The Scout modem is the easiest way to connect your data logger to eagle.io. The Scout takes any standard internet ready SIM Card without the need for fixed IP addresses and has a range of smart features including inbuilt GPS, signal strength monitoring, event based reporting and low power mode.
You need to configure your Data Source to use the Scout transport. You can then use the Device settings button to display the device settings dialog. See configuring a Data Source for full details.
The device settings dialog allows you to review and configure the settings for your Scout. The status message at the bottom of the dialog will indicate if the remote device is up to date or out of date. Configuration updates will automatically be applied on the next successful connection.
The general section allows you to configure the device for use with your SIM.
The communication section allows you to change the COM1 port settings to correctly pass data between eagle.io and your data logger.
Some data loggers may require a specific Baud rate, but most other settings should use the defaults.
The configuration section allows you to view software versions and configure updates.
Select an option for software updates:
Release will use the latest stable software (recommended).
Development will use an unstable version of the software still being tested.
Do not update automatically will disable the updates.
The operation section can be used to remotely reset or reboot the Scout modem or retrieve its internal logs.
