Q: What is the mechanism for transmitting data from EnerTracSE monitoring sensors?

EnerTracSE eSensors transmit multiple times a day using EnerTracSE’s purpose built RF network to centralized receivers. The receivers rely on standard internet protocols to transmit monitoring data back to EnerTracSE. This serves to drive down the costs of the monitoring service and the sensors do not interfere with customer's phone or security systems. A more in-depth discussion of the EnerTracSE monitoring system is avaliable on the network page.
