Time-Controlled Temperature Checks

The Z-Cron commands THERMO-ON and THERMO-OFF allow time-controlled temperature checks. If a specified threshold temperature is reached, another Z-Cron job is run.

Prerequisite for this command is a USB thermometer. You can use several such temperature sensors on one computer at the same time.


Runs another Z-Cron job if the measured temperature is above a specified value. You can use this command to regularly measure the temperature (e.g. every 5 minutes) and then activate a fan or an alarm if it is too hot.

This is a simple way to monitor the temperature in a server room, for example. You can use the Z-Cron ALARM command or connect a fan to our USB Switch Socket which can then be activated with the POWER-ON command.

Temperature Checks


This command runs a Z-Cron job if the temperature drops below a given threshold. You can use it to switch the activated device off again.

In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
