Siemens Building Technologies Inc.: Wireless Room Temperature Sensor

August 6, 2007


The Apogee® Wireless room sensors incorporate reliable, redundant mesh networking technology, ensuring that sensors are immune to signal interruption. According to the manufacturer, this is the first wireless sensor to use robust and reliable mesh technology to communicate with its terminal box controller. Because the sensor is part of an inherently redundant network, the sensor is able to automatically find a new path using the other radio nodes on the network. Efficient, embedded intelligence, and other aspects of its design, contribute to long battery life. Designed on a ZigBee®-compliant platform with a display that features temperature, set point values, and occupancy conditions, the device will enable ambitious, cost-efficient HVAC control schemes, states the company.
