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

EnerTrac eSensors transmit multiple times a day using EnerTrac’s purpose built RF network to centralized receivers. The receivers rely on standard internet protocols to transmit monitoring data back to EnerTrac. 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 EnerTrac monitoring system is avaliable on the network page.
