Enter the username and password shown on your AirVisual Node/Pro's screen, and - bingo! Take your pick from the Node/Pro's internal data files.

Please note, If you are importing the data into Excel in another language which marks a decimal point as a comma, this may affect the formatting of your data. For instance, the number "8.6" in Node/Pro's reading will be automatically changed to "86" when being imported if user's computer only marks and recognizes "8,6" instead of "8.6".

If you are having trouble downloading the data to your computer via Samba, please check these troubleshooting steps.
