BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – December 16, 2013 – Temperature@lert, a leader in environmental monitoring technologies, announced today that their latest patent for advanced sensor cloud computing methods has been approved. Temperature@lert’s Sensor Cloud service in combination with their Cellular edition (with wired smart sensors or wireless ZPoint sensors) allows for seamless monitoring and alerting through their infrastructure-independent system. This patent continues to push their legacy of award-winning monitoring hardware and software-as-a-service.
US Patent 8,599,012 adds an innovative approach to data transmissions by combining both the feature of US Patent 8,547,226 and existing acknowledgment alerts. With their latest patent, acknowledgment and monitoring frequency change alerts would be sent together in one transmission, thus allowing the device to save power and bandwidth. Overall, this
allows for low-power bandwidth protocol and thus lowers the overall power and cellular data consumption when the device is in operation.
Their previous patent; US Patent 8,547,226; covers an environmental monitoring system where smart sensors would be able to adjust their reading interval based on the state of the sensor. Therefore, if a user has preset a threshold that has been breached, the system would read that particular sensor more frequently during the alarm phase. Once the alert has been cleared, the sensor can return to its normal reading frequency.
“This fourth patent in our series of applications truly establishes Temperature@lert’s technology at the forefront of wireless monitoring system methods,” stated Harry Schechter, President/CEO of Temperature@lert. "We have always believed that our advanced techniques put us at the cutting edge of environmental monitoring hardware and software. The award of this patent confirms this belief, and we look forward to the approval of our complementary applications in the near future as well. ”
Temperature@lert Sensor Cloud allows users to see the status of all the devices and sensors in one interface regardless of their respective location(s). By using any web browser, users can login to a secure server and access their data logs and reports from their wireless monitoring devices. Sensor Cloud will inform users through a variety of alert types if a problem arises.
Sensor Cloud’s advanced PowerSense and HealthCheck features ensure that the user is notified when the sensor is recording an out-of-range reading and/or when the device senses the loss of AC power. These features provide an advanced warning of potential problems to users. Sensor Cloud’s advanced computing methods and Temperature@lert’s Cellular system with wired or wireless ZPoint sensors keep users protected where traditional wired and wireless methods fail.
Temperature@lert’s temperature and environmental monitoring solutions provide both real-time and historic views of a location’s temperature and other critical parameters through alerts and cloud-based graphs, data logs and reports. This information allows customers to immediately react to potentially disastrous temperature or other fluctuations in critical environments, as well as provide temperature consistency for regulatory and internal process control requirements. Temperature@lert has more than 40,000 devices installed in over 50 countries around the globe. For more information, please visit www.temperaturealert.com.
