Onset Computer Corp. on Thursday announced a new software tool for its line of HOBO data loggers. The new $49 Alarm and Readout Tool is an add-on for the HOBOware Pro software that runs on Macs and PCs.
HOBO Data Loggers can monitor a variety of internal and external conditions over time. They’re used in marine biology, environmental quality analysis, agricultural research and more. HOBOware Pro is software offered by Onset that enables users to download data from those devices, program them and perform analysis and data plotting.
The Alarm and Readout Tool is a plug-in to HOBOware Pro that will automatically notify you via cell phone text message or e-mail when temperature, humidity and other conditions exceed limits that you define. It can also be used to offload data from a HOBO logger to a centralized computer.
