How to Buy

Watchport USB sensors offer an easy Plug and Play solution for measuring distance/proximity, humidity, and temperature. Creating a made-to-order monitoring system with Watchport sensors can preempt damage to equipment and facilities and also reduce costly system downtime and maintenance. The Watchport Series also includes Watchport USB cameras.

Watchport® Manager* application software provides centralized device status and historical data logging, and allows the easy integration of multiple Watchport devices without additional software development. The customizable software can send email, beeper or phone alerts when undesirable conditions are detected, making it ideal for remote monitoring in point-of-sale (kiosks, ATMs), medical and server room applications.

Applications for Watchport sensors include monitoring server room temperature/humidity; activating information kiosks when shoppers are nearby; or ending confidential HR kiosk sessions when users are no longer detected.
