Each data report from an STS Gold Controller to the Home Station, includes System information on battery level, signal strength, and datalogger status. This information can help maintain the System without having to visit the site. It can also help determine the cause, if a data disruption does occur.
If the Remote Station battery goes below 9 Volts, an alarm will be sent to a selected e-mail address, if the Alarm Setup section in the STS Software is used. (See Section 3.4).
