1.  Purchase Equipment - A G-7 Air Quality Monitor/Gateway or G-4 Gateway is typically used with S-2-3 Temperature/Humidity sensors, S-31 Wireless Temperature, Humidity and Smoke Monitor, S-26 Wireless Ultrasonic Flow Meter and S-17 differential pressure sensors. Any sensor we have ever sold works with any gateway we have ever sold going back to 2003 when we started OmniSense and sold our first monitoring systems.  The sensors are battery powered and have a 5-7 year battery life when reporting every 5 minutes.  The gateway is wall powered, just plug it in and you are done with gateway and sensor setup.  No pairing required, no phone or app required.  Truly "zero configuration".
2.  Create a OmniSense Monitoring Account - The OmniSense Monitoring web site is where you create your job sites, view your current and historical data, create alarm rules to be notified of events, generate reports and download data.  You can create as many user logins as you need and give different users different privileges such as "Administrator" for full privileges and "Basic" for viewing only privileges.
3.  Create your first job site - Think of a job site as a container or folder where all sensor data for a loss or a claim goes.  Gateways are assigned to a job site and then any sensor that is within wireless range of that gateway automatically shows up on the job site.  There is no "pairing" or manual assigning of sensors to a gateway or a job site.  You do not need a app on your phone as our web site is "mobile friendly".
4.  Install the Gateway - Plug it in to power and verify the Internet LED goes on solid green which indicates it has connected to our server.  
5.  Name all of the sensors -Each sensor will automatically show up on the job site.  You can edit the description of each sensor to document its function and location.   These names will show up in the final report so make sure they are accurate.
6.  View the data - Do this BEFORE you leave the job site to make sure you are seeing "rational" data from all sensors.  Log in to the monitoring web site from any computer or phone to view data in real time.
7.  Generate a report - Log in to the web site, click on the "report" button for the job site and then click "generate report".  The report will include easy to read graphs of T, RH and WME.  Reports can be saved in PDF format for easy inclusion in your final documentation.
8.  Create Alarm Rules if you want to be alerted when readings exceed desired limits
