What is the environment rating (IP 65?)of the sensor? 6. Is there a spec sheet that will state all this type of info? Thanks!

    Our little company was selling and "alarm box" that would send an SMS upon a fault...this was almost twenty years ago. What Mekong says is correct. Most likely for the average frig in most any environment, what you sell is adequate. True story...my friend had $300,000 of wine in his walk in wine frig. He had an alarm system if the temp got too hot...luck of the Irish, his frig got too cold and froze the wine! He had insurance to cover the loss but remember not only the over but also the under!

    Another win by President Trump! US economy grows by 3.2% in the first quarter, topping expectations The U.S. economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the first quarter and posted its best growth to start a year in four years. First-quarter gross domestic product expanded by 3.2%, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said Friday in its initial read of the economy for that period. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected growth of 2.5%. It was the first time since 2015 that first-quarter GDP topped 3%. “The upside beat was helped by net trade (exports jumped while imports contracted sharply) and inventories which combined contributed almost 170 bps of the rise,” wrote Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group. “Personal spending though, the biggest component was up just 1.2%, two tenths more than expected as an increase in spending on services and nondurable goods offset a decline in spending on durable goods.” https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/26/gdp-q1-2019-first-read.html

    David Winters was in Teddy Bear, a movie that I was in and filmed in Pattaya and Bangkok in 2012. My 2 seconds in the promo 5555 David Winters (1939–2019) Born April 5, 1939 in London, England, UK Died April 23, 2019 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA Birth Name David Weizer As a child and teenager, David Winters acted in many television shows and Broadway productions, including the initial line-up of the stage production of the musical "West Side Story", playing the role of Baby John. In 1961, he appeared as A-Rab in the movie version of West Side Story (1961), recreating the "Cool" dance sequence, which was choreographed for him. With Carole D'Andrea, Jay Norman, Tommy Abbott, William Bramley and Tony Mordente, they were the only members of the original Broadway Musical to be cast in the film. West Side Story (1961) was the highest grossing Motion Picture that year and went on to win 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The feature established David as a young star. He began to release music and had steady work acting. In 1964, he got a big break as a Dance Choreographer for the Musical Film Viva Las Vegas (1964), starring Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret. It became a major hit, and many think it is the best Elvis Presley movie ever made. After these successes, he became one of the most sought-after Dance Choreographers. He was seen regularly with his dance troupe in major TV shows such as Shindig! (1964) and Hullabaloo (1965). To his resume, he added three more Elvis Presley films (Girl Happy (1965), Tickle Me (1965), Easy Come, Easy Go (1967)), four films with Ann-Margret (Kitten with a Whip (1964), Bus Riley's Back in Town (1965), Made in Paris (1966), The Swinger (1966)), The T.A.M.I. Show (1964), and many more projects for film and television. In 1967, he received what he has called his biggest honor, his Emmy nomination for the choreography of the TV Movie Movin' with Nancy (1967). This was the first-ever Emmy nomination to a choreographer in the category "Special Classification of Individual Achievements". His nomination led to the creation of the Emmy's "Outstanding Achievement in Choreography" award, for which he was nominated in 1970. It was also in 1967 that David began to direct. His first assignments were for two episodes of the hit show The Monkees (1966). Shortly after he started producing, directing, and doing the choreography for star-studded TV Specials. These include The Ann-Margret Show (1968), Ann-Margret: From Hollywood with Love (1969) (for which he received his second Emmy nomination for dance choreography), Raquel! (1970), Once Upon a Wheel (1971), The Special London Bridge Special (1972), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1973) (nominated for three Emmys), and Timex All-Star Swing Festival (1972) (which won the Peabody Award and a Christopher Award for David as its producer). David began to produce and directing feature films in 1975. His first effort was the concert film Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare (1975). This got rave reviews and is now considered to be one of the most creative rock shows ever made. Shortly after he was hired to choreograph A Star Is Born (1976), starring Barbra Streisand. It went on to win the Academy Award for best song as well as three other nominations. In 1982 he produced, directed, wrote, and co-starred in The Last Horror Film (1982), which he filmed guerrilla-style without permits during the Cannes Film Festival, and which went on to win numerous awards, including the Paris Film Festival Award, the Los Angeles Golden Scroll Award, and the Sitges Film Festival Award. In 1986, he made the first film about skateboarding Thrashin' (1986), starring Academy Award Winner Josh Brolin, Sherilyn Fenn, and Chuck McCann. The movie is notable for using in it's soundtrack music by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (who play a set in the film), Fine Young Cannibals, and The Bangles before their rise to fame. Still today the film has a big cult following. The year after, he opened his own production company "Action International Pictures" later renamed "West Side Studios" which independently produced and distributed over a 100 motion pictures until the mid 1990's. In the 2000's, he directed Welcome 2 Ibiza (2003) which won the Bangkok Film Festival Audience Award. He also produced the historical epic The King Maker (2005) which won numerous prizes, and had a big theatrical release in Asia. It was distributed for Home Video by Sony in the USA, and by Universal in other countries. It was sold in thirty-six countries, making it the most successful Thai Film ever made. In 2015, he released his latest hit film, Dancin': It's On! (2015) where he reconnected with his original passion for dancing. The film stars winners and runner-ups of the successful TV shows So You Think You Can Dance (2005) and Dancing with the Stars (2005). The film won the Wide Screen Film Festival for best director, best editor, and best score. It had a three months theatrical run and, in DVD and Blu-ray, was shipped in platinum quantities twice to major outlets throughout the USA. Most recently, David got his memoirs published called Tough Guys Do Dance (2018). The book charted on bestselling lists, and quickly went for a second reprint.

    Most brilliant, President Trump!!! Cher Suddenly Doesn’t Support Mass Immigration After Trump’s ‘Sanctuary Cities’ Threat Pop icon has a dramatic change of heart Pop icon Cher has suddenly had a dramatic change of heart on mass immigration after President Trump threatened to dump illegals in the “sanctuary city” where she lives. Imagine my shock. On Friday, Trump said his administration was considering the idea of releasing immigrants into sanctuary cities, partly in retaliation to Democrats’ support for open borders. Previously, Cher had demanded, “Anyone who can must take a dreamer in2 their home & protect them!! I’m ready 2 do this & others in my business will do the same!! Sanctuary.” However, she rapidly reversed her feelings on the matter following Trump’s threat to place those “dreamers” in her city... https://www.facebook.com/paul.j.watson.71
