WHY

?

Sensor-agnostic.

User-installable sensor connectors available to adapt your existing sensors to work with Avo.

Whether you’re using Stevens sensors or sensors from another manufacturer, they’re fully compatible. Field-installable connectors can be used to adapt existing sensors on an existing station.

...and many more!

Flexibility

Connect any type of sensor. The number of sensors that can be connected is limited only by the total power load.

Stevens-Connect

Configure all aspects of the station including logging and reporting intervals and all analog, pulse and SD-12 sensors. Make changes at any time, from any device.

Our cloud-based data hub is incredibly powerful and incredibly intuitive. It’s used to configure your sensors’ logging and reporting settings. It stores and analyzes your data, notifies your smartphone when conditions are met, allows you to visually create custom calculations and “virtual sensors”, and it can receive and/or forward data from/to 3rd-party systems.

Avo is perfect for:

  • Temporary sensor deployments where simplicity and quick assembly / disassembly are important.
  • Linking existing sensors directly to the cloud.
  • Any environmental monitoring application where minimizing complexity and maximizing reliability is important.

Unique Features

  • Unified data interface experience: Sensor configuration, data storage, custom algebraic equations, custom data formats and forwarding, control, analysis, alarm notifications (email, SMS), reporting and actions all done with one simple cloud-based user interface.
  • Easy configuration:  Configure with your smartphone, tablet or PC via the cloud-based Stevens-Connect. No custom programming or scripts required.
  • Redundancy:  All data is saved locally on an SD card, and is stored in highly secure cloud data centers. 
  • Connection verification: Avo verifies connection with cell network and server connection before data is sent. If no connection is available or if data reception is not confirmed, data is saved and sent the next scheduled transmission.
  • Data format flexibilityOptionally forward data in various formats for third party software platforms.
  • Direct data access options: Third-party programs can access data using REST API.
