What does my Fleet Health mean?

The REALConnect Platform provides daily remote monitoring of AED readiness, and its real-time notifications offer unparalleled insight into your program’s health status.

Below is a breakdown of all of the Health Statuses on the REALConnect Platform and what they mean for your AED.

Overall Health

Healthy AEDs: Healthy AEDs are displayed in Green and have no issues. They are ready to be used in an emergency.

Unhealthy AEDs: Unhealthy AEDs are shown in Red, require attention, and could have the following issues associated with them: 

  • Low battery 
  • No installed Pad Cartridge 
  • A Pad Cartridge is installed but requires replacement 
  • A Self-Test failure has occurred

At Risk AEDs: At Risk AEDs are shown in Yellow, and they could have the following issues associated with them: 

  • Upcoming Pad Cartridge expiration
  • A Training Cartridge is installed (instead of the lifesaving Pad Cartridge)
  • Screen & Connectivity Module Low on Battery 
  • Temperature Warning
  • Software Update is Available

Unknown: Unknown AEDs are shown in Gray. These are AEDs that have not synced with the REALConnect Platform, so their health status is not available. A device may not have synced to the REALConnect Platform because:
