Preguntas frecuentes

Temperature Sensor Specific is for the temperature measurement at some distance from the unit or in a harsh environment, such as salt water of fish tanks, oil burner, vaccine storages. Temperature Sensor Ambient is just for the ambient temperature. See full details by clicking on links for these sensors.
Please choose Temperature Sensor Specific and not the Temperature Sensor Ambient. Nevertheless, the term 'precisely' is relative when it comes to temperature. Accuracy is the same for both as you will see in their spec. With the Temperature Sensor Specific you will just be able to place the sensor in that particular point where you wish to know the temperature. You can find clarifications on this subject in the section 'I have a problem...' of this FAQ.
Absolutely! We provide solutions for that for many years. The best up-to-date option for remote vaccine storage temperature and power monitoring is our new Plug-and-Go iSocket with Temperature Sensor Specific. You can order both as a pack with a proper plan here.
You cannot go below -55C with iSocket temperature digital sensors, however you can monitor power interruptions to your cryostat and so you know that something bad happened. You do this outage monitoring by installing iSocket to any free wall socket that is on the same electrical circuit with your cryostat. For monitoring low temperatures inside cryostats you need PTC sensors and proper components cascade that can support such sensor, because such sensor is basically just a resistor. We use digital sensor and iSocket will only read that sensor directly. The lowest temperature of the sensors is -55C.
You can request the temperature anytime when the power is presented. When the power is failed the unit will sleep. There is a small battery inside the unit so you can't monitor the temperature all the time when no power. However there will be a software update in Q3-Q4 2021 where we will add a facility to monitoring the temperature in a smart way during cortes de energía - you will be able to configure how often the unit should wake up to probe the temperature and thresholds against which it should probe it. When it breaks thresholds you will get a notification. This way the temperature can be monitored one or two days if wake up interval is reasonable (about every hour). Probably it will be longer, we don't know - we are testing this feature and it will be release in the future with no extra fee if you already have the sensor and essential temperature option in your plan.
Usted puede encender o apagar su aire acondicionada remotamente con el iSocket sólo si su aparato tiene una clavija (enchufe). La mayoría de estos aparatos están cableados directamente a una caja y poseen un mando para controlar la temperatura. No puede conectar el mando del aparato al iSocket pero si éste tiene un enchufe puede conectarlo al iSocket y ajustar la temperatura del aire acondicionado y/o apagarlo (corta la corriente suministrados al aparato mediante el iSocket). Entonces puede encenderlo a distancia antes de llegar a casa. Por favor tenga en cuenta que esta opción podría no estar recomendada por el fabricante del aparato. Usted haría esto bajo su propia responsabilidad. Podría pedir consejo a electricistas o especialistas o que le instalen el relé iSocket Smart Relay para que pueda integrarlo en su sistema de aire acondicionado.
Sí, puede hacerse. Y le recomendamos el iSocket Environment Pro para ello debido a su precisión en la monitorización de temperatura con sensores de temperatura digitales externos.
10 feet (3 meters) is the maximum length of our sensor cables. You can extend the cable using a good quality alarm cable. Remember that a longer cable raises the probability of a high voltage drop and wrong measurements. If you use it only to check the temperature and do not use it as a thermostat, then some deviation in measurements would probably not be a problem. It is very important to use quality cable and connectors, however. We check the manufacturing of our temperature sensors to ensure high standards for all their components. Despite the apparent simplicity of this component, it is the product of a series of important factors.
