Calibration lab environmental monitoring

#1
Hello All,
I'm looking for recommendations for WiFi capable, data logging thermohygrometers for lab environment monitoring. I'm looking to purchase a couple for our calibration and metrology labs in order to be able to monitor the lab environments remotely via any internet connected device and to log data to run trend analyses on.
Just wanted to see if anyone here has any such particular device installed and what their perceived pros and cons are.
Thanks.

We use devices by this company for temp/humidity monitoring:
Remote Monitoring for Operational Excellence | SmartSense

We are not a calibration house, so I don't know if it fits your needs. Data gets stored in the cloud, and can be viewed in graph format, etc., and min/max email/SMS alerts can be set. The central hub device communicates via 4G and the satellite devices via its own wifi, so there is no need for interaction between the monitoring gear and your internal networks (i.e., no security risk to your LAN). Sensor cables plug into the devices with RJ jacks, and can be bought with a NIST-traceable cert.

I can recommend a model NOT to purchase. Omega's iTHP system looks great, has the functions you want, has good specs, and is priced right.
The problem is that the probe isn't able to hold its RH specifications, and is not adjustable.

Onset (onsetcomp.com) is a company I have dealt with that has a wide variety of solid products. Environmental monitoring is their business.

Thanks Tagin. I put in a quote request with SmartSense. See if they have a product that makes overall sense for me once I hear back from a sales rep.

Thanks for the feedback DW. Appreciate the opinion on Omega as they were on my radar. Such a myriad of seemingly ideal devices out there and I definitely don't want to buy something and then be frustrated with performance. I'll look into Onset.
