Sentinel System Provides an Easy, Affordable Monitoring Solution for Fruit Growers

ASTON, Pa., October 14, 2019 – The Sentinel™ system from Sensaphone® uses cloud technology to provide supervised 24/7 remote monitoring of changes in environmental conditions and the functioning of critical equipment. It allows operators to remotely monitor conditions like temperature, humidity, ventilation, soil moisture, carbon dioxide and power failure at fruit growing operations to protect valuable plants and equipment from damage.

When the Sentinel system detects that a sensor reading has moved out of the preset range, it sends notification via phone call, text or email to designated personnel for fast corrective action. Operators can access real-time data from anywhere using a mobile device. Its user-friendly cloud functionality lets users check status information, change settings, disable alarms and readjust temperature limits right from the Sensaphone app.   

Housed in a NEMA-4X enclosure, the Sentinel unit is protected from dust, dirt and moisture both indoors and out. Each system monitors up to 12 different environmental and equipment status conditions including temperature from -109 °F to 168 °F. Sensaphone offers two types of Sentinel systems: Ethernet based and cellular for locations where internet connectivity is unavailable.

The Sentinel system also has enhanced data logging functionality that allows users to print, graph or export accurate historical records. This advanced data logging capability saves personnel time and effort when reporting on operating conditions or demonstrating regulatory compliance, because the system makes it easy to maintain records and generate time- and sensor-specific reports.

The Sentinel system constantly communicates a signal to the Sensaphone cloud to validate its online status. If the communication link is interrupted—for example by a power outage or someone accidentally switching off the unit—the system generates an alert indicating that internet connection is lost or that there is a cellular communications problem. Users are notified about the disruption through phone, text or email.
