Batteries are low power and can last for 5 years. (depends on use case)

If my gateway off-line for a short time, the sensors’ temperature data will be lost?2020-07-02T10:38:28+08:00

The sensor temperature data can be kept in sensor for 10days, once gateway links to internet, the data will be transferred and saved to Kiwi IOT cloud server.

How is the data protected?2020-07-02T10:41:56+08:00

AES 128 encryption.

What types of alerts are available?2020-07-02T10:46:53+08:00

There are both email and app messages that can be delivered to recipients based on configured temperature thresholds.

What’s included in the solution?2020-07-02T10:52:23+08:00

1. Temperature and humidity sensor – additional sensors available for purchase.
2. Cellular or Ethernet Gateway
3. Kiwi Temperature Box web and mobile application
