  • arrow Reviews



Temperature Alert monitors a room's ambient temperature and alerts you by e-mail when it rises or falls outside your acceptable range. Use it at home to maintain a comfortable living environment and protect your valuable electronics. Or bring it into your business for reliable temperature monitoring of server rooms, data centers and more. The USB stick installs in just one minute and includes user-friendly software that gives you customized ways to keep tabs on temperature.

  • Monitors the ambient temperature and alerts you via e-mail when it rises or falls
  • Customizable alert message can be sent continuously or just once
  • Logs temperature history and current conditions
  • Optional PC Shutdown protection in case your hardware heats up

Round the Clock Temperature Monitoring

Standard email alerts are sent when the temperature goes out of your acceptable range, allowing you to take timely corrective action. You can customize the alert message to be sent continuously or just once when triggered. Temperature Alert also lets you know if the temperature returns to your acceptable range, indicating that the problem is solved. You can even set up optional status emails with current temperature readings inside your acceptable range.

Configuring Temperature Alert is easy with the included software. The program automatically generates a graph of the current day's temperatures and allows you to zoom out to view several days, months, or years of data. When the temperature goes out of range, the graphics on the console change to indicate a problem.

Home and Business Applications

This reliable USB temperature monitoring stick helps you protect property from overheating, or from HVAC or refrigeration failure. Use it in cabinets, computer rooms and data centers to make sure your IT infrastructure remains safe from temperature problems. Homeowners can also monitor their thermostats for failure and protect loved ones from suffering in an uncomfortable environment.

How It Works

Temperature Alert has a pre-calibrated, built-in sensor to monitor ambient temperature. The stick connects to your PC via an available USB port and runs as a Windows service. Powered by your computer's USB port, it never needs new batteries or an AC power adapter. Accurate to within half a degree Celsius, it can report temperatures from -40 to 93 degrees C (-40 to 200 degrees F). Real-time graphing and XML support provide you with the tools you need to integrate temperature readings into websites or third party applications.

Temperature Alert requires little to no technical knowledge to use. However, if you are technically inclined, you can customize this product easily. For instance, to use the raw temperature logs, simply install Microsoft's SQL Server Management Studio and query the temperature logs instantly.
