With all the connectivity in our lives, we’re always looking for something to watch our property while we are away. Environmental sensors are one sure way to protect our homes and businesses — especially here in Minnesota.
Technology in the alarm industry is always making advancements and improvements with the customer experience. An example of this is water and temperature monitoring. Thermostats only monitor the temperature near the thermostat but environmental sensors give a live display of conditions in specific areas of the home. The sensor I’m referring to is called Alula Trident Tri-Mode Environmental Sensor and it works in three ways.
First, it is a water sensor that detects the presence of water where the sensor is located. Second, as a temperature sensor to detect freezing temperatures and lastly to detect overheat conditions. When this sensor is programmed appropriately, you can view real time conditions with the user app for the alarm system.
Traditional alarm systems have gone well beyond the historical definition of monitoring for intrusion and fire. Environmental sensing is becoming just as important if not more important in some cases for protecting what one has.
