Boston, MA - May 11, 2012 - Temperature@lert was named a Finalist yesterday in the Best New Product or Service - Industrial Products & Services category in The 2012 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program for their Solar Cellular Edition product.
Temperature@lert’s TM-CELL500 solar powered, cellular sensing and alerting system combines Temperature@lert’s latest generation cellular engine with a host of agricultural related sensors and control devices. The heart of the system is the Cellular Sensor Cloud, a secure server based service employing a web interface where users can log on from any computer or smartphone to see the conditions of their crops. By using Temperature@lert’s industrial smart sensors, growers now have the ability to use technology to effectively cut water consumption by more than 50%, monitor for potential pest management issues such as fungus and guard against frost in order to maintain or improve crop yield and reduce waste. Customers can receive email, SMS text message and phone calls letting them know what is going on.
