WiFi and Mobile Network model: The device can connect to both 2.4GHz WiFi router network and mobile GPRS/3G/4G networking using a SIM card. (SIM card is not provided).
The UbiBot ® WS1 Pro is a state-of-the-art environmental monitoring system that leverages the latest IoT technologies. Collect environmental data in real-time and automatically sync all the data to the UbiBot ®IoT Platform using the built in GPRS/3G/4G and WiFi. The clear 4.4’’ screen allows you to instantly view the latest data. You can also access your device readings in real-time via our App or using a browser anywhere in the world. The embedded RS485 interface ensures your use of external probe in the most extreme conditions.
Our cloud-based IoT platform offers advanced data analysis and management. It also allows you to setup real-time notifications - if a metric goes outside the range you specify, the platform will notify you through the app, by email, SMS text, voice call and HTTP, allowing you to respond promptly before costly damage happens. Please note, charges may apply to SMS text and voice call alert modes. These two modes cost the balance of the credits in your account. The IoT platform gives users access to both the real-time data and history via our mobile app or on any browser. We are now working with IFTTT (if this then that), allowing you to build custom link with other smart devices.
The device can store over 300,000 records in its internal memory, which can protect your data against network failure. Even if the network fails, the UbiBot WS1 Pro still stores readings, thus ensuring there are no gaps in the data history.
The data sync interval can be set by you. This allows you to balance battery life against frequency of data capture. With the default data sync interval of 15 minutes, using WiFi connection, the device has a battery life of up to 4- 6 months using 4 AA alkaline batteries.
External Probe Selection (Optional):
- UbiBot WS1 Pro has two Micro USB ports for connecting external probes or USB power-supply.
- Both Micro USB ports can be used for external DS18B20 temperature probe. Temperature range (-55 to 125 ℃) with 3 or 5 meters round cable.
- One of Micro USB ports can be used for RS485 temperature and humidity probe.
- We recommend to buy Micro USB Splitter Cable Adapter (One Male to Two Female) if you want to use external USB power-supply and two external probes at the same time.
*The quoted battery life was tested using VARTA industrial batteries under stable signal conditions with default synchronisation and sampling settings.
1. Does the device collect data when the network is unavailable?
Yes. The device continues to monitor the environment even when no network is available. It stores the data in its on-device memory and will sync it when you move it to WiFi environment. Alternatively, you can manually export the data via our PC Offline Tool or WiFi AP. For this version, you can insert a Micro SIM card as backup for the WiFi unavailable situations.
