Sensors Can be Monitored over a WAN Connection
When used in a Drop-in Network with Digi International's ConnectPort X gateways, Watchport® sensors can be monitored over a Wide Area Network (WAN) connection, providing centralized monitoring of geographically distributed sensor points. Plus, the Python® programming engine on the ConnectPort X provides the software tools to integrate multiple sensors and create custom applications using sensor readings. Watchport sensors can be used to monitor critical environmental data such as temperature, humidity, distance, acceleration, moisture activate a Watchport camera or alarm when an access point is encroached or reduce energy consumption by automatically powering down lights or other environmental systems when inhabitants are no longer detected. These sensors must be used with the XBee sensor adapters for wireless monitoring of sensor data in drop-in networking applications.
