La Crosse Technology

With the La Crosse Alerts Wireless Temperature & Humidity Sensor with mobile alert, someone can be notified when the heat goes off at the cabin or the temperature fluctuates in the refrigerator. The sensor wirelessly transmits temperature and humidity readings to a computer and will send an email or text message if the readings indicate temperature or humidity outside of defined limits. Low temperature alerts can prevent damage from frozen pipes, for instance, while high alerts can prevent mold and mildew. Up to 10 sensors for other areas can be added within a 200-foot wireless range. The wide variety of applications include wine storage, pools and spas, basements and garages, aquariums and terrariums, and more. Weather history data can be stored for several weeks and then downloaded as a spreadsheet. lacrossetechnology.com
