IOTA door sensor, equipped with SIGFOX wireless transmission module, allows to detect if and when doors are opened/closed. It is being used mostly to monitor doors/flaps in objects that are located remotely, to make sure doors/flaps are properly closed. When doors are opened or closed, the device instantly sends a message that can be pushed as email/sms or visualised in an application. The mechanical switch used in the device eliminates false alarms and provides high resistance against tamper. The device has also additional features:

  • informs weekly about state of battery („awake” message)
  • detects movements/shocks (optionally).
