FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RLE Technologies, a leading provider of web-based monitoring solutions and leak detection systems for mission-critical facilities, is excited to introduce the WIFI-TH - a wireless temperature and humidity sensor that leverages an existing Wi-Fi network to communicate with a building management system.
“As Wi-Fi technology evolves to become cheaper, more reliable, and more secure, we’ve noticed that many of our customers are using Wi-Fi to power their networks,” says Ryan Clemens, a Senior Firmware Engineer at RLE. “We wanted to provide a sensor with RLE’s quality and reliability that could quickly and easily integrate into these environments.”
Jeremy Swanner, RLE’s President, agrees, “Over the past two years, RLE’s wireless sensors have set the benchmark for affordability, battery life, transmission range, and integration. Going into this project we knew the WIFI-TH would have to meet the same criteria, and it absolutely does.”
The WIFI-TH is wireless and battery powered. Since wires are not required for power or transmission, an electrician isn’t required for installation. Plus, RLE’s Wi-Fi sensors are compact, unobtrusive, and provide an industry leading battery life – up to seven years at a five minute transmission interval.
The WIFI-TH’s temperature and humidity data can be sent via a UDP packet to a BMS system or pulled into RLE’s WiNG-MGR. And while IT departments may be hesitant to add wireless devices, it will ease their mind to know that these sensors were designed with security in mind. The WIFI-TH:
- Only allows one-way communications, so there is no risk they could be hacked remotely.
- Fully supports industry standard WPA/WPA2‑PSK encryption.
- Features encrypted data storage for network and configuration information.
Facilities worldwide are using RLE’s WIFI-TH to monitor for changes in temperature and humidity, meet efficiency goals, maintain optimal equipment performance parameters, anticipate equipment failures, and prevent downtime. The WIFI-TH is in stock and ready to ship!
