The Kestrel DROP is a wireless environmental data logger that measures temperature, humidity and barometric pressure (model dependent), and connects wirelessly to the Kestrel Connect App to view logged data on smart devices.

Kestrel DROPs have Arrived

Nielsen-Kellerman (NK), manufacturer of the Kestrel® Weather & Environmental Meters, a brand trusted by users for more than a decade, announced the upcoming release of the Kestrel DROP® Wirelesss Environmental Data Loggers, which connect via Bluetooth® Smart to a user’s iPhone, iPod or iPad (generation compatible), to view, log and chart captured environmental data. Users can download the Kestrel Connect App directly from the App store.

The Kestrel DROPs are small, rugged, waterproof and accurate data loggers that allow users to monitor the conditions of any environment, while easily accessing and charting real-time and logged data. These data loggers can be placed in multiple locations (inside, outside and even in water) to log specific environmental conditions and transmit data up to 100 feet away (line of sight) via Bluetooth® Smart to a user’s smart device. Users are then able to share real-time and logged data through the Kestrel Connect app through email, text message and social media.

The Kestrel DROPs, which come in high-visibility red, blue and desert tan, feature three sets of measurements:

  • Kestrel DROP® D1 Wireless Temperature Data Logger – Temperature
  • Kestrel DROP® D2 Wireless Humidity Data Logger – Temperature, humidity, heat index and dew point temperature
  • Kestrel DROP® D3 Wireless Environmental Data Logger – Temperature, humidity, heat index, dew point temperature, wet bulb temperature, density altitude, barometric pressure, moisture content, humidity ratio, relative air density and absolute pressure.

“We are excited to add this product line to the rugged and field-proven Kestrel line. The applications are really endless. From measuring environmental data during cargo transport to conditions in the field for military training to feeling secure about the climate conditions in any room in your home or office building, we want to make sure you’re able to measure all of these conditions even when you’re physically not there,” said NK CEO Alix James.

Built to Kestrel’s brand-specific rugged durability standard, the Kestrel DROPs are waterproof (IP67 standard) and drop-tested to MIL-STD-810G. Users are also able to set threshold alarms where an in-app pop-up will notify a user in range that certain measurement criteria have been met. Visit frequently for product updates and launch dates.
