Protect your home during the winter!
As the cold winter continues, home owners have found Temperature@lert to be an invaluable tool in making sure their homes are safe from the cold. Instead of burdening neighbors with ensuring the heat in your vacant home stays on and your pipes don’t freeze, Temperature@lert solutions can help.
We suggest either the WiFi or the Cellular Edition for vacation home applications. While some homeowners use our USB Edition for this purpose, most homeowners do not leave a computer running when they are away from home; therefore the USB Edition is not able to operate. The WiFi Edition requires an operating WiFi network to work properly, while the Cellular Edition requires a cellular carrier signal. Both the WiFi and the Cellular can monitor one or two locations with the addition of a second temperature sensor cable for the second location.
Both the WiFi and Cellular Editions can be configured to send email alerts when the temperature surpasses the set temperature threshold. The Cellular Edition is noted by customers as “very easy to set up and use” through a convenient webpage, Temperature@lert’s Sensor Cloud, where sensor reports and histories are stored. Operation requires a cost-effective monthly subscription plan which provides the ability to send text and phone message alerts for multiple temperature alert levels and to multiple recipients. More importantly, Cellular Edition has a built-in battery back-up so when the AC charger power goes off, a common occurrence in remote vacation home settings, the unit will continue to operate and send messages. Cellular Edition also has an alert for AC Power Sensing which will send a message when AC power is interrupted, providing an additional warning of potential problems.
Don’t let the bitter cold of winter force you to invest time and money into costly home repairs. Check out Temperature@lert’s products and find the right solution for your home monitoring needs!
"Why is temperature monitoring important? Where should temperature probes be placed to get the most accurate readings?" Our new white paper, Considerations for temperature sensor deployment in critical environments, addresses these questions while taking into consideration different applications such as homes, refrigeration, and server rooms. Click here to read this white paper.
While our probes are known to be within +/- 0.5 degrees C of the actual temperature, some applications, such as ISO certifications, require that that our probes accuracy be tested and documented. To meet these customers’ needs Temperature@lert has NIST certified temperature probes and combination temperature/humidity probes.
