Temperature@lert Debuts ZPoint Wireless Sensor

June 20, 2013

The battery-powered devices monitor the ambient temperature and other physical parameters in a variety of asset management applications and alert you via email, text message, or phone when conditions fall outside the acceptable range.

BOSTON, MA -- Temperature@lert announced the release of their wireless sensor line, ZPoint. After years of research, development and thorough field-testing from government agencies and other partners worldwide, this leader in environmental monitoring solutions premieres its fault-tolerant, battery-powered wireless sensor line for data logging, alerting, and compliance.

Their latest innovation allows users to place sensors wirelessly to monitor hard-to-reach spots that would typically require extensive cabling and/or power for functionality. Even with obstructions and obstacles within a building, ZPoint wireless sensors are able to transmit readings from up to 300 ft. indoors and up to 1,000 ft. outdoors. The ZPoint wireless sensors can transmit every 5 min. for up to 5 years on the two included AA batteries. The fault-tolerant design continues to report data to the cloud if AC power is lost and can store and forward thousands of sensor readings if wireless signals are interrupted.

The ZPoint system works in conjunction with Temperature@lert's ZPoint Cellular Edition for both indoor and outdoor monitoring. Their standard ZPoint Cellular Edition can handle up to 15 ZPoint wireless sensors, while their industrial gateway can monitor up to 25 ZPoint wireless sensors. Each ZPoint wireless sensor includes an internal temperature or combination temperature/humidity sensor, as well as two additional input jacks that can handle a variety of external plug-and-play smart sensors for flood, dry contact, 4–20 mA, 0–5 VDC, pressure, rain, wind, and more.

"Temperature@lert's ZPoint is a game changer for those seeking fault-tolerant wireless monitoring solutions with redundancy over multiple cellular carriers. After extensive field-testing, it is great to see that our wireless technology has been released to the market. We're now able to provide enterprise-class wired and wireless sensor solutions," said Harry Schechter, Temperature@lert CEO and President. Schechter also stated that, Temperature@lert's wireless sensor capabilities only expand upon what has already been successfully implemented, thus being able to offer an even more cost-effective temperature monitoring solution to IT, commercial refrigeration, property/facility management, food services, laboratory research, and a number of other industries. Our company motto has always been to avert disasters instead of mopping them up, and we hope to continue to be the prime choice in monitoring solutions.
