    IMG_3007.JPG IMG_3006.JPG We have this on demo . It uses the sigfox signal so you can use it in remote locations . It could be used on the combine to notify us if Diesel is being stolen .

    I think he got a free trial because he set a record for the distance a sigfox signal was picked up on his personal tracker . Mt Leinster to some placeinSpain . When he ordered the tracker he knew where it was . The guy said he had dispatched it but it was still in his van outside his house .

    A cup of tea with milk in it was 57 Celsius . It can be used for remote sensing of temperature in eg. your swimming pool or Hot tub .

    The temperature sensor in a remote shed with no WiFi or internet. It’s no harm to take a walk up the pile just to be sure. The Sygfox signal sends it back to the computer.

    This is a device for turning on lights remotely using a phone or tablet it also can be turned on with a switch . It is programmable so you could turn it on with a switch but be programmed to turn off after an hour. It has a dawn and dusk setting or you could program it for different times. It cost €9.5 .

    It is connected to WiFi. . Some of these devices have a memory so can be programmed where WiFi is available and then moved to a remote place and will just act like a pre programmed timer .
    I only make the tae on electrical jobs .

    You could connect it to your Heating system. We have something similar connected to the fans in the Grain store and linked to Accu weather so the fans only come on when the outside temperature drops below pre set temperatures. It will not blow the grain on warm or wet nights.

    I have one of these little switches wired in place of the timer for the heating at home. handy little setup. similar to what you have there, app on the phone job. I have a few other ones for lights and ones you can plug in to a power socket too but haven't set them up yet.
