BOSTON, MA – October 17, 2011 – Temperature@
lert, a leading provider of real-time, cloud-based environmental monitoring solutions designed to enable businesses and individuals to mitigate temperature and critical parameter related disasters, announces today the release of its latest design of the company’s popular USB temperature monitoring and alerting appliance.
Carrying forward the design and success of the company’s flagship USB Edition, the latest generation provides the same easy install and use, reliable, high resolution monitoring as its predecessor in a new, smaller, more environmentally friendly package. The latest design makes installation in tight quarters easier, allowing it to be deployed with very limited clearance from the server’s or computer’s USB port.
“Our USB Edition customers tell us how much they love the product and how in many cases it has saved their server room and computer network hardware and data from damage or loss,” stated Mr. Harry Schechter, Temperature@
lert’s President & CEO. “The most important change we’ve made is to help reduce our materials usage, lowering the device’s carbon footprint. We’re helping save the earth’s resources.”
The redesigned USB Edition has the same field proven high quality electronics, software and temperature sensor as the previous model. With the help of Temperature@
lert’s valued U.S. strategic suppliers, the redesigned device was able to fit into a smaller electronics enclosure. This change insures adjacent USB ports are available for additional devices our customer’s may want to add to their servers, telecommunication or computer systems. And the latest USB Edition is able to fit in a smaller shipping package, saving even more material and the energy to ship it across the country or around the globe, making it the company’s greenest product.
As Harry Schechter noted when he saw the new USB prototype, “Better form, improved fit, same great function. That’s a winning combination in anybody’s book.”
lert’s USB Edition monitors the ambient air temperature at its location and alerts you via email when temperatures rise or fall outside the user specified range. The temperature sensor is accurate within +/- 0.5°C and can report temperatures from -40°F (-40°C) to +200°F (+93°C). Temperature@
lert USB Edition comes with the most current software version and runs on all the latest 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows® including Windows XP, Server 2003, Server 2008, Vista, and Windows 7. The USB Edition is CE and RoHS compliant.
Stand-Alone or Fault-Tolerant Sensor Cloud Operation
The USB Edition can operate in stand-alone mode, sending email from your computer or server when things get too warm or cold. The device can also be configured to operate through Temperature@
lert’s Sensor Cloud server based monitoring service. For a low annual subscription, the USB Edition will transmit data to secure servers. Users will log onto their Sensor Cloud accounts and set up the alert parameters. In addition to email messages, SMS text messages can be sent from the Sensor Cloud. An optional Sensor Cloud plan can also be selected to issue phone messages when alert levels are reached. Users can also configure Sensor Cloud alerts for multiple temperatures, and for each level send email, SMS text and phone messages to one or more recipients, providing a powerful tool to implement an escalation plan. Additionally, the Sensor Cloud’s HealthCheck function allows users to be notified if the USB Edition has not checked in for a few reporting intervals, providing the advantage of fault-tolerant operation for the most critical applications when, for example, electrical power or computer networks are interrupted.
