PLANET WAVES HUMIDITRAK BLUETOOTH HUMIDITY, TEMPERATURE & IMPACT SENSOR
Musical instruments can be easily damaged by large and rapid changes in humidity and temperature. The Humiditrak uses Bluetooth to provide a constant stream of temperature, humidity, and impact data to a free smartphone app. When dangerous conditions are detected, notifications are sent to your device, allowing you to take corrective action before damage occurs. App supports multiple devices, so you can keep an eye on several instruments from one location. More details...

- Great idea, but poor app, limited updating, and web-dependent app.
This seemed like a great idea, and I still think it has value, but there are some very annoying limitations of the sensor and app (mostly the app) that people need to know before they buy one of these things. Specifically:
1. The app is tightly integrated with the internet; it appears you cannot use it without having it constantly transferring information to their website. This is inappropriate, wasteful, and a security risk for users. I have no idea how much this costs, but it is an annoyance. It also prompts you for details of cost and serial numbers of instruments. Why on earth would one want to provide that to this company?
2. It doesnt update when you open the app, and it is unclear when it does update. You cannot depend on having recent information when you look at the app. This is bad design, and totally annoying to have to sit there looking at it hoping it updates.
3. It also appears to have a very limited range. I bought 2, and it does not appear to be able to reach them from different parts of the house.
So, great idea, but presently a very crappy app that will irritate anyone trying to use it.
