The new device measures and transmits temperature and humidity data wirelessly to mobile devices via Bluetooth Smart technology. The self-contained wireless data logger, which works with Onset’s free HOBOmobile app for logger setup and data management, enables the user to access data over a 100-foot range from an iOS mobile device. The MX1101 communicates instantly and requires no dedicated equipment beyond an iOS device to configure the logger or read out data. There are no cables to deal with, no computer software to install, no devices to pair, and no internet access required, the vendor said. The device was designed for use in a range of building monitoring applications, such as tracking storage temperatures in a food warehouse, keeping tabs on humidity levels in a museum, or investigating occupant comfort complaints in an office building. The HOBOmobile app is available via free download from the iOS App Store.
