Your gateway to seamless wireless sensor monitoring
Spook's ethernet wireless gateways are the key to collecting sensor readings from Spook’s range of wireless sensors without the need for a PC.
Spook wireless sensors arrive pre-configured and have on-board on/off switches making installation extremely easy. Just switch on the sensor and access Spook's secure cloud based remote monitoring service, called OmniWatch, via any internet enabled device.
With over 80 sensor types there is little Spook wireless sensors can not monitor. Here are some of the most popular ones.
Accelerometers and vibration monitoring
Alternating current (AC) monitoring
Air quality monitoring
Boundary and IR monitoring
Button press monitoring
Dew point monitoring
Dry contact monitoring
Food probe monitoring
Light meter monitoring
Soil moisture monitoring
3 phase current monitoring
Volts direct current (VDC) monitoring
Wireless sensors security
Where other devices operate on non-proprietary communication protocols (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee), Spook wireless sensors and gateways operate using different frequency bands so they cannot be used to eavesdrop on the radio communications.
In addition a robust packet tampering evaluation routine is used to ensure that traffic isn't altered between the sensors and the gateways and this enables a check for well-formed data packets that only originated from the correct enabled devices.
To further protect data there are algorithms that protect against spoofing and re-transmission of wireless data packets.
The wireless sensors use a frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS). They also use Encrypt-RFTM bank level security, featuring a 256-bit exchange to establish a global unique key and an AES-128 CTR for all data messages. Therefore security is maintained at all communication points from sensor to gateway, gateway to Spook servers and back again.
