Price: $205.54


Scigiene’s Wireless Gen 2 wireless light meters measure the intensity of light in lux (luminescence/unit area), from 0 – 1000 lux (indoor range). Perfect for light sensitive applications like museum and art gallery light monitoring. User customization allows you to set the frequency of readings and the ability to set thresholds for notifications and alerts by SMS text, email or voice call from the system.


  • Wireless range of 1,200+ feet through 12+ walls
  • Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS)
  • Improved interference immunity
  • Improved power management for longer battery life
  • Encrypt-RF® Security (Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange + AES-128 CBC for sensor data messages)
  • Onboard data memory stores up to 512 readings per sensor: 10-minute heartbeats = 3.5 days, 2-hour heartbeats = 42 days
  • Over-the-air updates (future proof)
