The RuuviTag is a microcontroller-based sensor node which can measure temperature, relative air humidity, air pressure and motion (via a built-in accelerometer), and transmit that data over Bluetooth Low Energy. It includes a 1,000mAh CR2477 battery, which means it can run for up to four years without the need to change the battery. It can operate indoors or outdoors due to its IP67 certified weatherproof enclosure, and its -40ºC to +85ºC operating parameters!
The tag is supplied with default firmware that works together with the Ruubi Station app so you can collect the environmental data from all nearby tags and display the data in real time. You can also set alerts, to warn you when a parameter goes outside of a specified range, or even send the data to a server.
