Temperature sensors are a commonly overlooked but critically important aspect of home security. They may not keep the burglars away, but they can certainly protect you from the effects of environmental havoc. Ideal for home as well as commercial use, these simple but powerful devices provide immediate alerts when temperature changes pose a threat to the immediate environment. They’re great for homes, businesses, cabins, greenhouses, storage units and even wine cellars.
Contact vs Non-Contact
Temperature sensors are designed for a variety of configurations. Some are wireless while others are hardwired; some are standalone while others are designed for specific security systems; some feature built-in alarms while others do not. Despite all of these variations, though, temperature sensors typically fall into just two categories: contact and non-contact. Contact sensors measure their own temperature, and are the easiest to install and understand. Non-contact sensors are used primarily in labs and commercial settings, and they have the ability to measure the thermal radiant power of infrared or optical radiation existing outside of the sensor.
Choosing the Right Temperature
Not all temperature sensors are created equal, and before you make your purchase, it’s important that you understand the temperature reach that each sensor is capable of measuring. It’s also important to note whether or not the sensor includes a preset temperature trigger. If you plan to use your sensor outdoors, you’ll need one that’s specifically designated for outdoor use, such as the 39 Degree Winland Temp Alert. If you’re not sure which sensor is right for you, feel free to contact us at any time. We’ll gladly guide you in the right direction.
The Benefits of Temperatures Sensors
Temperature sensors can warn you of potential dangers, including the kinds of freezing colds that can crack you r pipes and lead to flooding. But they’re also ideal for monitoring environments with specific temperature needs. For instance, if you need to protect your computer equipment, produce, plants or bulk foods, it’s essential that you maintain a consistent environment suitable for those home or business essentials.
