Bluetooth iPhone and Android Tempo Monitor By BlueMaestro
A while back we featured the Blue Maestro Tempo Monitor. Today, we’re back with news from Blue Maestro – they upgraded both the monitoring device as well as their mobile apps, making them even cooler!
For first, the monitoring device, which used to track only temperature, now also tracks barometric pressure stats as well as humidity info. On the software side, both Android and iOs apps got redesigned, making user interaction even easier.

The upgraded Tempo Monitor connects to your devices via low energy Bluetooth 4.0 and iBeacon for iOs gadgets, works up to 165ft (that’s 50 meters) distance, is water and weather proof (which makes in a perfect choice if you want to track outdoors stats), stores historical data for the last 30 days, allows temperature alerts triggered by high and low thresholds and has a battery life of around 12 months.

What I really liked about the Tempo is how simple the setup process is. Simply instal the free iPhone or Android app, turn on the monitor and wait a couple of second for it to automatically connect. That’s it, after a couple of seconds, the barometric pressure, temperature and humidity data starts to download on your phone and displays on the main dashboard.
The Tempo Monitor works locally via Bluetooth and, because of this, does not need to be hooked up to your wireless or wired internet network. Another cool feature is that the unit continues to monitor and track the setup parameters even if you’re not around, allowing you to download the recorded data as soon as you get into the Bluetooth range of the device. Available in white, black, gray and pebble (marble).
Cool, isn’t it? Check out the review video bellow and let me know your thoughts in the comments bellow.

There are a variety of sensors available (motion, door and window opening and closing, temperature, light, temperature, humidity, sound, soil moisture, smoke and so on …) which can monitor almost every aspect of your home, and, based on pre-defined triggers, they take action in your behalf. The device can send you notifications via phone calls, SMS, smartphone apps or even Facebook, can lock/unlock doors, plug/unplug electric devices, automatically send pics and videos of your home to your mobile device, interact with security system and garage doors, turn ON/OFF the lights and control the water!

Tempo Bluetooth Smart Temperature Monitor by BlueMaestro
The BlueMaestro Tempo Bluetooth Smart Temperature Monitor is a cool piece of home gadgetry that allows you to constantly monitor the temperature inside and outside your home and set alarms based on predefined temperature thresholds.
The BlueMaestro monitor works on devices equipped with low energy Bluetooth 4.0 running on Android 4.3 and iOs 6 and higher (check your device’s compatibility here)
Here’s how it works: first, make sure your Bluetooth connection is set to not time out (some smartphones come with connection timeout setup to 2 minutes), instal the free Android or iOs app, hold the monitor’s button pressed for 1 second (you’ll hear a small beep when it turns ON) and you’re ready to roll. That’s it, no setup, no syncing or any other action required. In a couple of seconds the device will start reading information from the monitor.

Both Android and iOs apps will show you temperature stats and will allow you to set triggers based on your temperature preferences. I find this feature very useful as it can help you quickly identify sudden temperature drops or increases and gives you the chance to take action before it’s too late (think about saving those flowers when you forget the window open in the middle of the winter … this actually happened to us while we were testing the device) as well as smaller differences which, addressed in time, can help you cut heating and AC costs.

The Smart Monitor can connect to your phone for up to 75 meters (that’s about 225 feet) if it has a direct line of sight, is weather proof (can be used outside as well as in humid environments), allows multiple units to hook up at the same smartphone or tablet (you can easily monitor multiple rooms at the same time) and is conveniently powered by 2XAA batteries (included) which will last for about 1 year (you can easily change them by unscrewing 2 screws and removing the back cover).
