Dear colleagues,I like to pick your brains, experience, gut feelings… It has to do with the data loggers I’m currently building and testing.
We all have our set temperatures and humidity levels we don’t want the values to drop beyond or go above. We sure want to know if the humidity level in our storage for metal objects exceeds 55% or the temperature drops beyond 11 °C (51.8 °C). So it’s quite logical that we want our device to send us a warning when this happens.
But there is something other we sure would like to know about: we all know that the most harm is done to objects by sudden change in the climate. Sudden drops or rises in temperature and/or humidity. Those changes might stay well between our given ranges but happen so fast we sure want to hear about as soon as it happens. On the other hand: if we get warnings too often we will grow numb towards them. So, I try to find a good middle ground and that’s why I’m asking you to state your opinion:
Imagine you had a device that warns you about sudden climate changes within a 10 minutes time span on your prefered channel (email, twitter, cell phone), what would you pick as trigger value?
