So you’ve probably been working with Spivi® for a while now, Want to learn more on how things work inside the system whenever you run a class?
As you probably know, the Spivi® system is located inside or near your sound cabinet, inside the Indoor Cycling studio. It is always on, always connected to the internet, and always updated with the latest software version.
Spivi® is completely controlled using the instructor controller. No keyboard or mouse it is needed.
When in idle mode, the Spivi® logo appears on the screen. In this state, the system is ready to get software updates, new software releases, and hot-fixes, which we provide automatically, when needed. Leaving the system in this mode for a while tells our servers that Spivi® is not in use and is ready for updates.
Once we release a software update and your Spivi® system is ready, an automatic update procedure will take place. Because the Spivi® system cannot e used during software updates, we only allow updates to happen with the system is in idle mode.
To ensure you get the latest updates, please ensure that instructors exit the training session completely and put the system into idle mode at the end of training sessions.

Performance Analysis and Cloud Storage
The automatic upload to the cloud is automatically done by Spivi® once a session has ended. Data is transferred when exiting the Spivi® session.
When used in Virtual Instructor Mode or when used with a pre-defined workout program, the data is transferred when the program is done running, immediately after the “Cool Down” stage.
