Watchport sensors provide a plug-and-play solution for Drop-in Networking applications. Each sensor connects to Digi's XBee sensor adapter (sold separately) for wireless connectivity to sensor data over a low power ZigBee® network.

When used in a Drop-in Network with Digi's ConnectPort X gateways, Watchport sensors can be monitored over a Wide Area Network (WAN) connection, providing centralized monitoring of geographically distributed sensor points. Plus, the Python® programming engine on the ConnectPort X provides the software tools to integrate multiple sensors and create custom applications using sensor readings.

*Sensors must be used with XBee sensor adapters for wireless monitoring of sensor data in Drop-in Networking applications.

Watchport sensors can be used in many Drop-in Networking applications. Monitor temperature and humidity levels in a refrigeration unit or grain silo; detect the presence of water in a livestock pen; activate a Watchport camera or alarm when an access point is encroached; or reduce energy consumption by automatically powering down lights or other environmental systems when inhabitants are no longer detected.
