Connecting your ZOLL AED 3 to a WiFi Network for Data Transmission




Setup Guide

Confirm the following information with your IT team:

 Type and frequency of your WiFi network


  The ZOLL AED 3 device supports these WiFi 

authentication protocols: PSK, PEAP, or TLS. It is 
compatible with both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies. 


  Note: Due to cyber security concerns, the ZOLL 

AED 3 device will not connect to open networks 
(no password required) or those that require active 

 MAC device addresses: 


  If your facility tracks the MAC address of connected 

devices, you can find these on the ZOLL AED 3 
device while in non-rescue mode by selecting the “(i)” 
button in the user interface (UI). Each MAC address is 
unique to the device/serial number.

  The ZOLL AED 3 defibrillator can connect to different 

hosted/in-premise network accounts for Device History 
(device self-test transmission) or Clinical Archives (clinical 
event files).

Connection Setup Tips: 

  For PSK networks, use the 

Quick Setup 

icon for easy 

connection. Simply use the 

WiFi search icon


find your network (SSID). Select your network 
and enter the password (Pre-Shared Key).

  For all other network types, ZOLL


 recommends you use the 

IT Setup softkey. When configuring your device, be sure to 
have a member of your IT team present for assistance.

  For Device History/Self-test transmission, all ZOLL  

AED 3 devices are preprogrammed to connect to the ZOLL 
Online and PlusTrac Device Management server. You don’t 
need to change the server settings unless you are connecting 
to Defibrillator Dashboard.

  Once you configure your first ZOLL AED 3 device, use the 


 button to confirm proper configuration.



Test WiFi

 will run 

Network Test Connection

, send a self-test 

file (DSF) to confirm operation, and perform an internal 
clock synchronization.


   If you receive an error notification, please refer to the ZOLL 

AED 3 WiFi Spec Sheet for a description of the error.


   Once configuration has been confirmed, export the device 

configuration to a USB and use that file to import the WiFi 
configuration into all other AEDs.

  For the TLS method of WiFi authentication, you’ll need to 

obtain both a root certificate and a client certificate from 
your IT department. ZOLL recommends using the .pem (b64-
encoded) format prior to deployment.

Every ZOLL AED 3


 defibrillator can be connected to a local WiFi network to aid in device management 

and rapid clinical event data transmission. Prior to connecting your ZOLL AED 3 to a local network, we 
recommend that you follow these important steps.
