For those people planning on attending the Nightscout Installation Workshop on Sunday in Salon A from 10:45 am to 3:00 pm, here is a parts list:
- A Dexcom G4 Platinum receiver. The receiver must stay within the same proximity to the sensor (near the T1 patient wearing it) so we need the person who wears it.
- An Android smartphone supporting USB OTG support. This phone is used only to transmit data from the receiver to the cloud. It has no other purpose. Note: USB OTG support is required on this phone AND Android v3.0.0 or newer. The system will not work if the phone does not have OTG or does not have the correct version of the Android operating system. If you want something for just the house an Android tablet will also work.
- A special USB OTG cable (view cables on Amazon.com) that connects the smartphone to the Dexcom receiver. It allows the smartphone to read and report Dexcom readings to the cloud.
- A micro-USB to USB Male cable (view cables on Amazon.com) to go from your Dexcom to the OTG cable. The Dexcom power cord that you already have is a Micro-USB to USB Male cable and can be used from the Dexcom-to-OTG part of the cabling.
- Internet Connectivity. CWD will provide cellular-based Internet connectivity for this session. If you have your own cellular-based Internet device, please bring it with you to augment the CWD-provided system.
- A laptop, which you will use to set up your personal Nightscout database and web site.
For additional information, see the Nightscout web site.
