This new computerized temperature-tracking product provides a detailed and visual profile of household heat and air-conditioning usage. Designed to help reduce energy costs, the Hobo Temperature Logger Kit combines the company’s Hobo data logger - a compact, battery-powered temperature recording device - and accompanying software that allows user to view heat and air activity on a PC or Mac. Once data has been collected for a certain period of time, the software converts the data into time-stamped graphs that enable homeowners to see what was happening and when. The visual data allows users to see usage habits and discover problems. The kit includes the Hobo U10 temperature data logger, Hoboware Lite software, and USB interface cable.
