Aginova's New, Affordable Low Power, WiFi-Based Temperature and Energy Sensors Boost Reliability, Convenience for Hospitals, Pharmaceuticals and Food Storage
FREEHOLD, N.J., -- Aginova Inc., a sensor technology company, is introducing today its Sentinel product line, a line of battery powered WiFi based sensors for monitoring temperature, relative humidity, and energy for a myriad of applications. The solution includes the most advanced Wi-Fi sensing hardware, a portable alarm unit, and a comprehensive software package for monitoring, reporting, and storing of critical storage condition data over time.
The WiFi wireless leverages the existing ubiquitous Wi-Fi network. As a result, the new temperature monitoring solution provides the security, manageability, convenience and benefits of Wi-Fi along with >3 years of battery life. Utilizing Wi-Fi for sensors enables a cost effective way for monitoring. Aginova's solution allows authorized personnel to view precise data over enterprise class security links, and provides alerts in the event that environmental conditions vary beyond a specified range. The system can page, email and visually alert any computer screen whenever food, lab samples, pharmaceuticals or other temperature sensitive items are outside prescribed parameters.
Hospitals can use the sensors to improve patient care and maintain regulatory compliance while providing automated and detailed reports on any piece of equipment for any time period for JCAHO, AOA, CAP, FDA, USDA or the Health Department. In addition, the sensors can also provide temperature logs, operating parameters, alarms and corrective actions to be taken while eliminating human error and the cost of manual temperature documentation. Similarly, for food storage monitoring applications there are different regulatory bodies requiring that there be an audit trail for the storage and appropriate alarming and alerting system.
Sensors in the Sentinel product line include temperature (monitored from -200C to +250C), relative humidity (0% to 100%), CO2 (0 to 20%), light, leak or wetness, and a series of energy monitoring sensors (Sentinel Plug and Sentinel Power to measure total energy consumption, power factor etc.). In addition to the sensors the solution includes wireless audio or visual alarms, wireless panic alarms and wireless door opening alarms.
The Sentinel product line is simple to use - just turn the sensor on, download the software application to your desktop and get to work!
Aginova has also introduced the iCelsius product line (www.iCelsius.com) that works with Apple's iOS platform. Over the coming months, Aginova plans to release additional wireless sensors that will work with apple devices.
Sentinel product line starts at a price of $99 from www.aginova.com/aginova_store.php online store.
Aginova Inc. provides affordable, low power sensor solutions that make the world come alive by providing customers actionable feedback from their environment. Aginova's products bring the sensor world to the internet using web services and are used in commercial environmental monitoring applications as well as condition based maintenance applications.
