ONSET ANNOUNCES WIRELESS TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY MONITORING KIT
BOURNE, MA, September 27, 2012 — Onset (http://www.onsetcomp.com), a leading supplier of data loggers and weather stations, today announced the HOBO Wireless Temp/RH Monitoring Kit, an easy-to-use, wireless system that includes everything needed to make environmental monitoring fast, cost-effective, and convenient.
In just three easy steps, users can monitor critical temperature and humidity conditions, log data for trend analysis, and stay notified of alarm conditions via text or email – all without the hassles of wires or manual data offload. The monitoring kit is ideal for use in a broad range of facilities, including food processing plants, office buildings, laboratories, and warehouses.
Key features include:
- Fast, easy set up out of the box
- Centralized monitoring straight from the desktop
- Alarm notifications via text or email
- Automated data delivery to remote locations via email or FTP
- Flexible design for easy system expandability
“Customers in a variety of industries are looking to track critical building temperature and humidity conditions easily and wirelessly,” said Kory Wagner, product specialist for Onset. “Adding measurement points to building automation systems can be expensive, and chart recorders tend to require a lot of maintenance. The new HOBO monitoring kit overcomes these limitations, enabling users to start monitoring their most important assets right out of the box.”
The system sends users a text message via phone or email when temperature/RH conditions exceed set thresholds, and sends an alarm if one of the temperature/RH sensors becomes disconnected from the network. The system also provides visual notification on the PC that an alarm has tripped.
The wireless kit includes HOBOnode Manager software, a component of Onset’s industry-leading HOBOware Pro software. HOBOnode Manager allows users to view near real-time energy and environmental data, set alarm notifications, and get an at-a-glance view of the system with its Network Map feature.

The HOBO Wireless Temp/RH Monitoring Kit includes three wireless temperature/RH data nodes, a data receiver, HOBOware Pro software, and sensor mounting accessories. It is available immediately from Onset, and is priced at $899 U.S. To learn more, please visit /wireless.
