There is now a wide range of trendy new environment monitors that cater for the domestic market. Generally these are internet based and require customers to have internet access and power for internet gateways even though the end sensor nodes placed around a house themselves are wireless. Zigbee has been the most popular wireless protocols between the sensors and the internet gateway, although Bluetooth Smart is gaining in popularity. The main limitation with these is that if there is no internet or power for the internet gateway, the monitors will not work.
In the world of food and pharmaceuticals controlling temperature and humidity are paramount. Keeping constant track of temperature and humidity levels, though, is challenging. It can be time consuming, have technical complexity and be full of regulatory requirements. Crucially, there can be costly repercussions if temperature and humidity levels exceed limits. Many monitoring and logging devices today use proprietary technology that are PC based and don’t offer the flexibility of a smartphone/tablet workflow, so crucial in today’s modern cold chain.
Welcome to Pacif-i Update 4, and it’s a big one. That’s right, we have a shipping date for U.S. customers – Friday 30th October!
The good news is slightly tempered in that we will be shipping to U.S. customers first, since we are waiting on our CE (European) safety tests to be finalised. Also because of the sheer volume of pre-orders, it is going to take us many weeks to clear the back-log – so just bear with us. All U.S. customers will receive an email asking them to confirm their shipping address. Orders will be dispatched in the order in which they were placed, providing you have confirmed your shipping address – so please watch out for that email.
With the growing realisation in cold chain that Bluetooth sensors and data loggers provide a cost effective and highly flexible solution to what has otherwise been dominated by proprietary sensor and radio technology, the question that is increasingly asked is “What makes the best Bluetooth sensor and data logger?”.
