At Disruptive Technologies, our innovative wireless sensors are the heart of our solution. Our sensors are tiny, powerful, and empower the development and deployment of innovative solutions for smart buildings and facilities management.
All of our sensors have a 15-year battery life, IP68 robust design, tiny size (19 x 19 x 2.5 mm), and weigh just 2 grams. They also come with adhesive backing for easy installation, can be placed exactly where you need them, and have end-to-end encryption connectivity from A-grade, 3rd party security review.
Our temperature sensor is one of our most popular and versatile sensors. It measures the surrounding temperature and transmits its readings every 15 minutes to our Cloud Connector. The temperature sensor has led to proven energy efficiency & optimization, occupancy, cold storage, and sustainability gains for our customers.
Inspired by our customer’s needs for even more granular data, we created our Gen 2 Temperature Sensor with logging capabilities, an updated version of our original temperature sensor. This new sensor provides more data points than any of our other sensors.
More data points mean you can catch more rapid changes in temperature and get more accurate condition detections. Any temperature use case benefits from higher data accuracy. To date, we’ve seen the most benefits in four main applications: water pipe monitoring for legionella compliance, motor & pump monitoring, cold storage, and desk occupancy.
With our Gen 2 Wireless Temperature Sensor, we aim to set a new standard for energy-efficient temperature measurements. The sensor can deliver more than 15 million data points while achieving the same 15-year battery life as the previous generation sensor. That is 30 times more data points, in the same form factor and size.
With this increased sample rate and accumulated data points, this sensor was created with Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in mind.
The new temperature sensor has three distinct software configurable modes:
These three modes make our Gen 2 temperature sensor the most versatile wireless sensor on the market. Specifically, with the new configurable logging and triggering capabilities, solution partners and system integrators will have opportunities to support even more detailed deployment requirements at very low effort and cost.
We expect the new wireless sensor to be deployed in a very rich set of use cases within the intelligent buildings environment. Through our conversations with partners and customers, we have identified four main areas where the new sensor provides added value over state-of-the-art deployments:
Our Gen 2 Temperature Sensor with logging capabilities will be available in volume during the second quarter of 2021 while Triggering will come later in 2021.
