As with all transformative technologies, IoT has been the source of an inordinate amount of hype but has also been a catalyst for the digital industrial revolution. General Electric’s chief economist Marco Annunziato estimated that Industrial and Enterprise focused IoT could add between 10 and 15 trillion dollars to global GDP. These gains come through small, incremental improvements in the world’s industrial assets.Read More
In the first two posts of this series, we discussed the challenges associated with physical buffer vials and TempAlert’s solution - the Virtual Buffer Vial (VBV), a patented modeling approach that simulates actual product temperature and eliminates the need for physical buffers.Read More
In our last post we discussed the challenges of physical buffer vials, in particular (1) the shelf space they take up that could be used for products, (2) the potential to get in the way as product is access around them, and (3) the potential for the buffering materials to spill and ruin product or product packaging.Read More
TempAlert assists companies across a wide range of domains in setting up remote environmental monitoring systems. A common reason our customers install remote monitoring systems is to assure that their products are safe for consumers.

Acronyms are extremely useful. We use them (mainly) to help consolidate names and associations into digestible briefs. Instead of "Entertainment and Sports Programming Network", we use "ESPN" when referring to that particular organization. Still, acronyms can often be confusing, misleading, or largley unclear to an untrained eye.
TempAlert, formerly Temperature@lert, announced on October 11, 2012 the approval of another patent application in support of company’s flagship product, the Cellular Edition wireless sensing system. With cost-effective, easy-to-install and use hardware coupled to TempAlert’s advanced Sensor Cloud technology, the Cellular Edition has become the standard by which all other products are measured.
Often we receive inquiries about our recommendations for the appropriate temperature thresholds to set. However, at TempAlert we know that every room or refrigerator has its own microclimate (even sensors inches apart can read different values). Although similar applications might share the same temperature threshold range, every location is unique. So how does one figure out the correct range?
