New HOBOconnect

Redesigned HOBOconnect app offers convenient, streamlined data collection

BOURNE, MA, July 28, 2022 – Onset, a trusted manufacturer of field-proven data loggers, today announced the redesign of its free HOBOconnect app for wireless configuration, management, and data download from HOBO MX series Bluetooth data loggers.

Compatible with iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets, as well as Windows laptops, the newly designed HOBOconnect app works with Bluetooth-enabled HOBO MX data loggers for convenient data download, especially from hard-to-reach or restricted locations. HOBO MX loggers are available in a variety of models for measuring air temp/RH, water level and temperature, soil moisture, light, dew point, differential pressure, air velocity, AC voltage, DC current, and more.

“Without a doubt, the new HOBOconnect app significantly streamlines the process of collecting and managing data from our Bluetooth loggers,” said Jake Lacourse, VP of Onset’s HOBO Product Group. “We’re happy to simplify the data logging experience for our customers as they work to improve indoor and outdoor environments and build a sustainable future.”

HOBOconnect app features include:

  • New interface that improves the user experience and streamlines common tasks
  • Bulk download, for wireless data download from up to 20 data loggers at a time
  • Support for all HOBO MX Bluetooth data logger models
  • Refreshed color scheme for light or dark modes
  • Ability to export existing data to HOBOlink, Onset’s cloud software platform
  • Multi-language support: Spanish, French, Traditional & Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese

Along with the release of the newly designed HOBOconnect app, Onset is ending support for the HOBOmobile app, which is no longer receiving security patches or updates. Current HOBOmobile users can continue to use existing installations of the app until transitioning to HOBOconnect and will not have to relaunch or reconfigure their HOBO MX loggers after switching, but are encouraged to export any files they want to keep before completing the transition.   

HOBOconnect can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or from the HOBOconnect Product Page (for Windows computers).
