SENSECOM sleeps most of the time and consumes a negligible amount of energy. the message is emitted for several seconds at regular intervals or based on sensor signal (alarm).
Each type of device goes through development and tests for minimising power consumption. The result is the ability of the device to operate automatically, maintenance-free, for several years without the battery replacement.
Depending on the frequency of the broadcast messages per day and based on the type of sensors, the device can usually run from 5 to 15 years. For each type of device, consumption is measured for the selected configuration, and the expected duration of the battery life is calculated at 80% battery capacity level.
