Get notified when outside temperatures are cool enough to open your windows to naturally ventilate your home and know when you should close them to prevent warmer outside temperatures from entering your home.
Presence Security helps you install wireless sensors that notify you and your trusted circle of friends when something important happens. Our sensors are designed for inside use but as long as your sensor is protected with weatherproof casing and it's within the range of your Presence Gateway you can open up the possibilities for your security pack.
Let's Get Started
Start by purchasing a Presence Security with a Gateway. If you already have, you can add as many sensors as you like, including extra temperature sensors.
Next purchase the very affordable Bell Metal Multi-Application Weatherproof Receptacle Cover (MX1250Z). While your sensor and covers are shipping start taking note of where the fully shaded areas are on your home exterior. Generally, this will be located on the northern side of your home, up high and under the shade of the roofing.
It's important that the metal box never touches direct sunlight, otherwise, it will throw your readings off.
Now that you have your sensor connected, installed and secured, you can set up rules with your other sensors to notify you when is a good time to turn off your air conditioning and let mother nature do the work for you.
Here's a custom rule to help get you started!
IF my 'window' opens AND my 'outside Temp' is above 70 degrees F THEN notify me by phone and notify me by email.
IF my 'window' opens AND my 'outside Temp' is above 21.1 degrees C THEN notify me by phone and notify me by email.
You'll learn just how efficient your home is in keeping the warmer temperatures outside by having another Presence Temperature Sensor inside your home. Now go enjoy the cash savings from naturally cooling off your home!
