Sentinel Monitoring System Ensures Comfortable Stay at Quality Brand Hotels
“Hello, front desk… there’s no hot water in Room 321, and I have a meeting at 9 a.m.!”
That’s not a welcome phone call at a hotel front desk—especially at quality brand properties like those owned by Arc Hospitality. Hilton Garden Inn and Marriott Courtyard are two of the 11 well-known brands of more than 80 properties the group manages. Their mission is to provide a superior personal experience for guests. Environmental factors impact this experience, so the properties strive to maintain stable ambient temperature and humidity in all interior rooms, hallways and group areas. They also try to maintain set water temperature ranges in all bathrooms.
Southwest Florida Resident Uses Remote Monitor to Detect Environmental Threats to Unattended Home
Naples, with its sugar-white beaches along Florida’s Gulf Coast, seems ideal in many ways. Known for its fine weather, outdoor recreation, shopping and dining, it’s a great place to visit, let alone live. But, as many residents know, it takes diligence to protect a home from the extreme heat and humidity.

Patients and healthcare professionals expect the highest quality pharmaceuticals from their hospital system. Failing to store medications according to manufacturers’ instructions can cause efficacy issues when treating patients.

Protecting Animals From Dangerous Temperatures 24/7
Being a cold-blooded animal can be tough. Because they rely on external heat sources to warm up their bodies, they are at the mercy of their surroundings. When environmental temperatures fall, so does their body temperature. And, if they get too cold or too hot, they might even die. So it was a close call at the Elmwood Park Zoo when the power and heat stopped working in the middle of a frigid January night.
Monitoring Devices Protect the Irreplaceable in Critical Medical Research
Imagine investing years of time, energy and brainwork in medical research, only to have it ruined because the lab’s freezer lost power and its contents were destroyed. Lab managers who are responsible for the viability of research samples can’t leave storing them to chance. As commercial refrigeration expert Brian Barlow knows, a temperature monitoring system is imperative when storing crucial medical products. And it must be a system that can send immediate alerts when problems arise.
