Purpose of WiFi on Resmed S9 Autoset
Can someone please tell me if my data is being sent somewhere without my consent?

Thanks.

Thanks!

Do you have a modem on your machine?
If you do that data is most likely being sent to the DME you got the machine from. Call them and ask. Also most of the time it's only on there for your insurance's compliance requirements. Also a lot of the time they remove it as soon as the compliance period is over.

It's a separate unit that attaches to the back of the blower unit like this:

Thanks.
You might want to check out Resmed's public web pages about EasyCare Online at http://www.resmed.com/us/en/commercial-p...nline.html.

It looks to me like the DME or doc (whoever gave you the modem) has the choice of downloading data to their computers or storing it in the cloud. It looks like they can choose to download anything from just the compliance data to the full efficacy data. It also looks like they can send settings changes back to the machine without ever informing you that a setting change has occurred.

Disturbing stuff if you ask me. Thinking-about

RE: Purpose of WiFi on Resmed S9 Autoset
Disturbing indeed. My DME provider told me they do indeed collect the data because they have to show the insurance company I'm being compliant as well as demonstrate the need for medical necessity.

I don't like this and I'm going to deal with it tomorrow.

Thanks!

You could wrap the antenna in tin foil. I believe it works off cellular phone service.
