qBiq is a standalone WiFi connected sensor. Unlike many of the competing products on the market, qBiq does not require a hub or base station because it has the ability to connect directly to your local WiFi network via your WiFi router.
qBiq has a free downloadable app available in the App Store. You can also use a PC or Mac to change the basic settings of your qBiq such as the SSID and Password which are used for accessing the local WiFi network.
qBiq will only connect with a 2.4GHz WiFi network. During the setting up process of the qBiq you will be asked for the Network SSID (username) and Password.
qBiq has an onboard memory and so if the device loses it's internet WiFi connection, it will continue to log data and automatically re-connect when the connection is available again. If your qBiq is offline or having trouble connecting, it will show up on the main page in your app as a greyed out bar until it is able to make a connection again.
qBiq is a perfect one inch cube (1” x 1” x 1”) --- Metric conversion (2.54cm x 2.54cm x 2.54cm)
The temperature sensor range is between -40° C to 85° C. However, lithium batteries perform differently in extremely cold or hot conditions. Lithium batteries are typically recommended for temperatures down to -40° but this may vary.
Temperature/Humidity Sensor Operating Range -40°C ~ 85°C
Accelerometer (motion) Operating Range-40°C ~ 85°C
Photo Transistor Operating Temperature -25 ~ +85 ℃
Storage Temperature -40 ~ +85 ℃
qBiq is an all in one sensor that gives you the ability to monitor temperature, humidity, light intensity (brightness) and movement. However, you may like to have multiple sensors to monitor and compare various locations simultaneously.
A smartphone is highly recommended but not required. Basic settings can be accessed and changed from a PC or Mac but in order to utilize qBiqs features and customization, an iOS compatible device is required. (Note: future updates will include the ability to use Android devices.)
qBiq has been factory-calibrated to be comparable to similar products in the market (+/-1° C)
(Note: when qBiq is plugged into a charging outlet, the accuracy of the sensors will vary as typical charging causes the device to temporarily heat up inside by as much as 10 degrees while charging and as much as 2 degrees while on standby but plugged in to an outlet.)
