The SensorPush is a really easy to use little sensor for tracking temperature and humidity.
There isn’t much in the box, just the SensorPush and a little sticky pad, I assume useful for fixing this inside a case or on a wall.
Instructions on the back of the box direct you to download the companion app. The app is really simple and easy to use and it presents the collected data in very easy to understand graphs.
Setup was really easy, click add a sensor, hold the SensorPush near your mobile, wait for the pairing process to take place…done!
You’re then ready to set the sensor up in whatever location you might want to track temperature and humidity. The tiny size means this can be placed in a wide variety of locations, for example a room, a cupboard, a box, a case etc.
It collects data right away and holds 20 days worth of data so you don’t need to collect data everyday (handy if this is not somewhere you’ll visit everyday).
Interestingly when this was placed in a fridge my phone could still access and download data even when it was located in a different room, so you don’t necessarily have to retrieve the sensor to retrieve the data.
You can set alerts to flag up an issue when data is collected, for example if the temperature or humidity dropped under your desired amount your mobile will alert you and when looking at the graphs the lines change from green to red to indicate where the sensor detected a problem.
While the alert system works well it can only alert you when you’ve collected data, it can’t alert you in real time as it requires a Bluetooth connection. In the long run if a follow up model could connect to WiFi to log the data online and back into your app (like Netatmo does) this would be a brilliant little sensor that could be fitted and forgotten about.
The app can support multiple sensors, they can be named so it’s easy to see which sensor is where.
A really simple to use product that does exactly what it sets out to.
