Tip: Consider time when setting your temperature limits 

 
Our sensors have an accuracy of +/- 0.5°C so that you can be alerted as quickly as possible if a critical temperature is reached. But what should your critical temperature be? If irreparable damage occurs at 85°C, you’ll want to be alerted before it reaches that threshold so you can respond.
 
Time can play a large role in what your threshold is. How long will it take to reach critical temperature after the alarm threshold temperature is reached? How long will it take someone to respond to the alarm? How long will it take to solve the problem? These can be crucial questions to ask when setting your alarms. Make sure your response and solution time is far less than the time it takes to reach critical temperature so you have a disaster on your hands.

 

New Cellular Edition Features and Updates: Battery Monitoring and a New iPhone App

 

A few new features have been made available for our Cellular Edition users. The first is that Sensor Cloud for Cellular now displays battery power. This is a great benefit for mobile applications where constant charging is not a possibility.

The second update is a new version of our iPhone App. The old iPhone app only displayed temperature. The new version gives the user the ability to view temperature, humidity, data logs and graphs of your temperature readings. The Temperature@lert iPhone App is free and up available at the iPhone Apps Store.
 

We're MassChallenge Finalist!

 

Temperature@lert is a finalist in the MassChallenge competition!  The finalist nomination is for our Weatherproof Cellular Edition environmental monitor, which provides the ability to monitor temperatures, soil moisture, irrigation flow and wind speed in critical outdoor locations without a telephone line or internet connection, such as agriculture and farming applications. One key aspect of the judges' decision is the potential use of the Weatherproof Cellular Edition in helping farmers know when and when crops need irrigation. Agricultural overwatering is accounts for nearly 90% of water use in the United States (source: USDA). Temperature@lert’s Weatherproof Cellular Edition is designed to provide farmers with the data they need to keep their crops safe and manage water resources wisely. Read the full release here.
