Develco Products, a white-label product development company based in Denmark, announced recently that the battery life of its window sensor can now reach up to 9 years after a product update.
The window sensor detects and reports opening and closing of doors and windows in a house. It also has a built-in temperature measuring functionality, making it capable of detecting and reporting changes in temperature. Before the update, the battery of the sensor lasted a minimum of 2 years. With the update, the battery lifetime reaches up to 9 years.
More and more wireless sensors are installed in homes across the globe to enable remote monitoring. However, as many of the sensors are powered by batteries, a fundamental consideration when choosing the right ones for an IoT solution is to avoid devices that need constant battery changing.
With the update, the window sensor also requires less maintenance, which can benefit both IoT solution providers and end users.
