smaXtec Climate Sensor

Here you will find all information you need to start the Climate Sensor.

The smaXtec Climate Sensor is designed to provide continuous measurement of environmental factors such as ambient temperature and humidity levels. This data is wirelessly transmitted to the smaXtec Base Station or a smaXtec Repeater. The number of smaXtec Climate Sensors required depends on the size of the cow shed.
