In addition to sensing a wide range of environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and light, a smart wireless sensor conditions the analog signal and converts it to digital using an onboard microprocessor. The sensor then wirelessly transmits this digital signal to a smart gateway where data from different sensors get aggregated and sent to the cloud for further analysis.
Omega's Layer N SS-01 Smart Sensors utilize Sub GHz Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology that facilitates long-range communications with a transmission range of up to 3.2 km. These sensors use the AES-256 Encrypted wireless link to ensure data security. SS-01 smart sensors are also capable of local data logging of up to 10,649 data points so that you can always have access to data even if there is a power or network outage.
