Temperature Monitor Application Whitepaper
Application Summary:
Many customers have a remote building such as a vacation rental, cabin, rental property, shop,
garage or vacant main residence that must be heated in winter to prevent water pipes from
bursting and causing huge losses to the property and priceless belongings.
Heating systems frequently shut down because of overload caused by clogged filters, frozen
gas lines and other reasons.
Customer installed a TPDIN-Monitor-WEB connected to his network to monitor temperature and
send an email alert when the temperature drops below 50°F (10°C). This gives the customer
advance warning that there is a problem with the heating system so that he can take action
before the pipes freeze and burst.
In addition, customer connected a small electric heater to one of the TPDIN-Monitor-WEB
onboard relays so that the heater could be turned on automatically when the temperature
dropped below 40°F (4°C). This helps to maintain the building temperature above freezing
during emergency situations.
Customer also set the TPDIN-Monitor-WEB to send an automatic status email once a week so
that he can see that the network connections and power connections remain operational.
