Create A Smart Home: INKBIRD IBS-M1 enables our thermometers and hygrometers to connect to the Internet and lets us remotely monitor temperature and humidity via a Wi-Fi network. It can connect a max of 50 devices at a time, helping us build a smart home.
Monitor Anytime, Anywhere: IBS-M1 can connect INKBIRD temperature and humidity sensors via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and we can monitor all of them by connecting IBS-M1 to our phones. As long as our phones access the Internet, we can monitor the temperatures and humidity from every corner of our home, no matter where we are.
Real-Time Notification: Notifications and alarms about connections and temperatures will be timely pushed through the phone app, reminding us to take protective actions and optimize the living environment for our family and pets.
Long Distance Connection: The maximum connection distance between the Wi-Fi gateway and the Bluetooth device is 164 feet (no obstacles), and the maximum connection distance between the Wi-Fi gateway and the wireless device is 300 feet (no obstacles). You can control the device with your phone anytime and anywhere.
Data Storage: The data of the IBS-M1 is stored locally (device). The data can store up to 3w data points, and the data exceeding this limit will be overwritten. The number of days the data is stored depends on the interval setting. We can check real-time temperatures and humidity via the phone app and export CSV files to our mailbox to investigate all changes in temperature and humidity.
More Convenient APP: Through the phone app, we can modify the name of each device, get instant temperature and humidity, and switch Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature units.

So far this device works great but I've only used it a few days and with only one device (hot tub thermometer) because the other devices are being shipped from China. I also hope I will be able to connect it to Alexa soon but for now it is not supported - hence only 4 stars.
I have installed a lot of smart controllers. This one absolutely will not connect to my 2.4 GHz wifi network. Do not recommend.
