A Kestrel DROP is the world’s easiest-to-use rugged environmental data logger. It allows you to monitor and record the conditions of any environment and easily access and chart real-time and historical data on your phone or tablet. A Kestrel DROP D1 logger can be placed wherever needed to log temperature with the data logs retrieved wirelessly and automatically to the Kestrel Connect app when within range(up to 100ft.). Kestrel DROP data loggers are designed to be used anywhere you need to track environmental conditions. DROP loggers meet military and international standards for water, dust and shock resistance (IP-67-30 minute submersion at 1m and MIL-STD-810G drop tested) and are equipped with a sturdy D-ring for hanging wherever needed.
Each DROP measures just 1 x 1.8 x 2.4 inches (24 x 46 mm x 60 mm) and weighs just 1.2 ounces (34 grams). The Kestrel DROP D1 employs a sealed precision thermistor mounted externally and thermally isolated for rapid response to monitor and record temperature over an operational and specification range of 14°F to 131°F (10°C to 55°C) within +/- 0.9°F (0.5°C) accuracy. Each Kestrel DROP Data Logger is powered by one easily replaceable CR2032 lithium coin cell battery that will last up to 4 months (typical conditions and logging/connection settings). The DROP D1 holds more than 13,000 temperature readings.
Kestrel Connect is the free app that powers the DROP loggers. With Kestrel Connect on your smart phone or tablet, you can view real-time readings from any DROP logger within wireless range (up to 100’ or more line of sight or 30 meters) via Bluetooth Low Energy. Each phone or tablet can connect to up to 8 DROP loggers at the same time and store data logs from many more. Min/Max/Average readings are clearly displayed and the data log is viewable as a scrolling graph with detailed data for each logged point. The Kestrel Connect app also allows adjustment of the logging interval and other settings as well as real-time threshold alerts. Readings can be updated as frequently as every 2 seconds and logging time and date are automatically updated whenever connected to your smart device. You can also send and share real-time and logged environmental data via email, Facebook or Twitter

The Kestrel DROP D2 and D3 are absolutely the best kept secret in the cigar industry! In the high tech world we live in, I am now able to keep a vigilant eye over my investment by remotely monitoring the environmentals of my humidor via a simple app on my iPhone. Having the ability to set alerts when humidity and temperature drop or go above ideal conditions is invaluable. This is a MUST HAVE accessory for anyone with a humidor!
