What is the difference between digital and switch sensors?

AVTECH Software have a range of sensors that are compatible with the Room Alert range of environmental monitors. Each sensor has two types of sensor ports built in to them. The digital sensors are used to measure values over a defined range for example temperature and humidity. Switch sensors on the other hand only measure two states. They are either alerting or in a nominal state. Switch sensors include smoke, wetness and movement sensors among many others. The smoke sensor does not measure the amount of smoke currently in the atmosphere. It goes into an alert state when it detects sufficient smoke to indicate a fire. The wetness sensor does not measure the degree of wetness in your data center, it indicates when there is sufficient dampness to indicate a flood.
