Despite the unusually warm weather we’ve had so far this fall, the first real cold snap of the season is looming. With winter's cold temperatures comes something every homeowner should be concerned about: frozen pipes. This is a particularly important issue for vacation homes that are left vacant for large chunks of time without a home temperature monitor.
Keeping electronics clean and dry is best way to keep them working at top performance for many years. You wouldn't expect consumer electronics like TVs and radios to work for very long in many of the applications where our devices are deployed. Although, Sensaphone devices are designed to be rugged and reliable, some models have limitations. We suggest purchasing a model that comes with an enclosure if it will be used outdoors or in a harsh environment.
The Sensaphone WEB600 system monitors environmental conditions in smaller locations such as server rooms, vacation homes, office buildings and medical storage facilities that are not occupied around the clock.Most often our products are installed by trained installers or electricians, but they are actually simple enough to be installed by most do-it-yourselfers. The WEB600 system has a straightforward setup for the central communications device and sensors. This new video playlist addresses every step of installation and programming.
According to insurance industry research, every day, 14,000 people across the United States must deal with a water-damage emergency at home or work. Permanent impairment to property usually occurs after 24 hours, adding up to $2.5 billion in repairs each year.
Temperature is one of the most important environmental conditions when managing facilities. This post is the second in our Know Your Environmental Threat series. It discusses how temperature monitoring is used to protect valuable assets in multiple applications including HVAC, server rooms and data centers, food storage facilities, greenhouses, medical facilities, and livestock and animal care.
We are excited to introduce our redesigned infrastructure monitoring system. Based on the performance success of its predecessor, the new IMS-4000E system provides upgraded functionality and peace of mind to business managers who rely on server rooms as the center of IT operations. We have sold more than 6,000 host units worldwide to date.
Humidity is an environmental condition that is often overlooked, but it is as important to facility management as temperature. This post is the first in our Know Your Environmental Threat series. It discusses how humidity monitoring is used to protect valuable assets in a variety of applications: HVAC, Greenhouses, Data Centers and Cannabis Growing Facilities.
The industrial internet of things (IIoT) uses the internet and sensors placed at critical points on mechanical equipment to send data to the cloud for limitless storage. You can access this information to control systems, monitor conditions and analyze data. Of course, this technology has revolutionized facility management. Now you can easily access data around the clock whether you are working on-site or remotely to assess real-time equipment performance. You can also review historical data to foresee malfunctions before they become complete mechanical failures.
