If you’re looking for a flexible solution to remotely track environmental conditions at your facility or workplace, consider a cellular wireless monitoring system. These systems use sensors to communicate their data (such as temperature, humidity levels, etc.) to the wall unit. By selecting a cellular-based device, your wireless monitoring system becomes even more nimble because it doesn’t need a landline or internet connection.
How Cellular Monitoring Systems WorkLike auto dialers and Ethernet-based systems, these devices pull data from the sensors. Cellular systems then send the information to the cloud via a cellular connection. Although there is a monthly service fee, it is less expensive (under $30 per month) than the cost of installing and paying for service via a landline or Ethernet cable.
The wireless cellular coverage provided by major carriers like AT&T and Verizon in the U.S. and Rogers in Canada reaches most areas. When the monitoring system provider offers the cellular service as part of the package, you don’t have to worry about SIM cards, overages and pricing structure with a cellular provider.
5 More Reasons to Go Cellular:
- Internet connections can go down during a power failure.
- Remote locations don’t have internet access.
- Landlines are becoming extinct.
- High-security facilities don’t allow Ethernet-based devices to run on their network.
- Running cable and phones line to your location isn’t physically practical or might cost a lot of money.
