Web-based Frost Alarm System
The Hobo U30 Frost Alarm System from Onset Computer Corp. is a Web-based monitoring system that makes it easy for growers to protect their crops while reducing water usage. The solar-powered system enables growers to view real-time field conditions during frost events from any Web browser, and set up frost alarms that automatically turn on irrigation pumps, wind machines, and other frost abatement equipment. The system can also send growers instant notification of when frost occurs, or equipment problems, via cell phone and eMail.
The base model includes a HOBO U30 monitoring station, a temperature Smart Sensor, and a solar panel. Additional Smart Sensors, HOBOlink data service plans, and accessories are priced separately. Other systems features include research-grade dependability, Smart Sensor architecture, and expanding design.
