Temperature and humidity sensor

The temperature and humidity sensor detects ambient temperature and humidity. It can be configured to send out alerts when the temperature, humidity or dew point goes beyond a predefined range. The alerts comes in the form of email, SMS and SNMP traps.

The temperature and humidity sensor is connected to Varius Message Router via a USB cable. The length of the cable can be up to 5 meters  allowing greater flexibility in the choice of location to place the temperature sensor.  

Trip conditions

The temperature and humidity sensor is tripped when the following condition occurs:

  • Temperature, humidity or dew point is lower than a threshold value for longer than a predefined period.
  • Temperature, humidity or dew point is higher than a threshold value for longer than a predefined  period.

Recovery conditions

The temperature and humidity sensor has recovered when the sensor is tripped and the trip conditions do not occur for more than a predefined  period.

Alert conditions

The temperature and humidity sensor can be configured to send out alerts for the following conditions:

  • Sensor is tripped.
  • Repeat alert interval is reached when sensor remains tripped.
  • Sensor has recovered.

Alert mechanisms

The temperature and humidity sensor can be configured to send out alerts by SMS, email and SNMP traps. Multiple profiles can be set for each alert mechanism.
