Pacif-i Review

"Overall though I think it’s a fantastic product to have. Having the ability to take his temperature from another room via my phone is fantastic. It’s simple to use and effective in giving an accurate temperature. It’s without a doubt value for money if you’re up and down as much as I am when taking temperatures."

Thank you +LeeLee Loves for your review!

One of the many things I’ve learnt in my first year as a parent is that their is nothing more worrying than a poorly child. Whether it be a common cold or a more severe illness. You will worry. Whenever Taylor has a fever I can’t sleep, I worry he might overheat or become worse in …

Environmental Monitoring

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Generation Tempo which will be shipping to customers in 2 weeks.  In this latest iteration of Tempo there have been quite a few changes to the electronics as well as to the outer plastic enclosure to make Tempo better than ever.  Some of these include:

1.  New Bluetooth Smart chipset to reduce power consumption and increase stability;

2.  New vents on the bottom of Tempo to make it even more reactive to environmental changes;

3.  The repositioning of sensors to be over the vents, again to make it more reactive to environment changes; and

4.  New sensors that reduce power consumption and increase accuracy.

Announcing Tempo Environment Monitor Generation 3

It has now been nearly 2 years since we first launched Tempo at the Gadget Show in London in November 2013.  At the time it stored 24 hours of temperature and was only compatible with iOS.  While it feels like yesterday it has come a long way from its humble beginnings.  Some of the highlights include:

1.  Tempo being expanded to include temperature, humidity and barometric pressure;

2.  Its memory being expanded to hold 30 days of hourly average, high and low of temperature, pressure and humidity;

3.  It being internet enabled when used in conjunction with our world class Tempo Anywhere Wi-Fi gateway; and

4.  It being launched into space and coming back to earth again (you can read Tempo Goes to Space here).

Well today we are pleased to announce the 3rd Generation Tempo which will be shipping to customers in 2 weeks.  In this latest iteration of Tempo there have been quite a few changes to the electronics as well as to the outer plastic enclosure to make Tempo better than ever.  Some of these include:

1.  New Bluetooth Smart chipset to reduce power consumption and increase stability;

2.  New vents on the bottom of Tempo to make it even more reactive to environmental changes;

3.  The repositioning of sensors to be over the vents, again to make it more reactive to environment changes; and

4.  New sensors that reduce power consumption and increase accuracy.

All Tempos are now able to have their firmware upgraded over the air which allows us to provide enhancements to customers as they become available.

And of course, all Tempos can now be internet enabled by using our world-class Tempo Anywhere internet gateway device.

Tempo continues to be one of the world’s leading environment sensors that is fully battery operated and does not need wires, cords or Wi-Fi.  Compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, it is compatible with over 90% of smartphones/tablets sold today.

Where it is important to monitor and log temperature, humidity and barometric pressure and have that data available through iOS and Android smartphones, Tempo continues to lead the pack.

Enquiries are welcome, please contact support@bluemaestro.com for further information.

Looking at what early-stage startups are working on is not only entertaining -- and sometimes concerning — it can also be a good indicator of where tech is headed.

Story
Tagline
I spent fifteen years in primary schools until I decided that juggling three small children and a full time career was not what I wanted.
Introduction
The internet of things, wearable technologies and appcessories are currently amongst the hottest tech topics. There is a constant stream of great and innovative devices in these areas as well as some which are more interesting than truly practical. My company, Blue Maestro, www.bluemaestro.com,  is developing a range of products in this area. Our products all have a unique design edge and have been designed to be truly practical. Our first was released in December 2013 and is a Bluetooth Smart thermometer, hydrometer and barometer which is compatible with iOS and Android and has a design unlike any environmental monitoring device ever seen. My perspective of life has been created from the experiences I have had travelling around the world and from my upbringing in a large family.  I taught firstly in NZ and then in Inner City London schools for fifteen years.  I loved teaching, crafting individuals to be responsible individuals who think for themselves and make informed decisions.  
Bragging rights
As well as building a successful business, I am mummy to three small very active girls. I also find time to moderate the re:DESIGN community. I am planting a vegetable garden too!
