Hi everyone! My husband just had a St. Jude pacemaker put in, and we were given the Merlin@home remote monitor. It had a wifi adapter with it in the box. The only instructions say to plug it in, but I have a lot of questions about this monitor.
Is this the same thing as remote monitoring? Is there a cost associated with it? When the information is transmitted, who does it go to? How do I know it only goes there? Can I set what the machine does? I tried asking my doctor's office and they said that I do not have to do remote monitoring, so can I just not set it up? My husband is extremely private and concerned about security and does not want to be remotely monitored or have a turned-on device "tracking" him at all times.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
