recently highlighted the fact that the Temperature@lert WiFi Edition
wireless temperature monitor runs Linux which means this low-cost,
high-performance device can easily be customized to fit your exact
most recent release is the WiFi Edition of its monitoring product.
Temperature@lert WiFi Edition is different from other, similar
wireless-based temperature monitoring products in that it’s based on
open-source software. “It’s essentially a mini-computer that runs
Linux,” Schechter says.
It’s also a Wi-Fi client that monitors
air temperature (between -40 and 200 degrees Fahrenheit) and sends
emails to designated recipients if the temperature rises above or sinks
below designated setpoints. It does so through a 6-foot external sensor
that can connect wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable to the
network. The device resembles a wireless router and measures 1 x 2.75 x
3.75 inches in size. The wireless edition connects automatically to any
network in range.
Out of the box without customization, the
WiFi Edition will email designated users every day with a summary of
the indoor weather in the data center, including the high, low, and
average temperature for the day. It also has XML and text log file
feeds and a zooming feature so that when looking at a whole-day
graph—which usually looks like a flat line—users can zoom in on any
blips in the temperature to investigate those events easily.
