Nuvo Speakers and Dancing

Turn it up! Nuvo players from Legrand

Following our previous post, we’re taking a closer look at the Nuvo Player Portfolio from Legrand.

Conveniently available in both wired and wireless configurations, the portfolio makes it easy to build a solution suitable for home or commercial environments. Each device allows access to both networked music libraries and the near-infinite variety of Internet Radio. So, whether it’s a new system or modernising an existing installation the Nuvo range can support any product.

Single-Zone Devices – Multiroom system.

A single multi-room amplifier is typically designed to run a single zone and can be wirelessly synchronised with multiple other amplifiers of the same kind to cover multiple zones, working in a modular approach.

For example, in a domestic environment, you’d ideally want to install speakers in different rooms such as kitchen, bathroom and bedroom while retaining the possibility of playing and controlling music for each room independently. To do so, you would need to use a single zone amplifier for each room.

By using a modular approach, each amplifier is connected through WiFi or using an ethernet connection. This gives you the ability to expand the system while controlling the volume and music of each zone or multiple zones through an App on your phone.

Flexible Solutions: Wired/Wireless Single-Zone players

Wireless single-zone players, perfect for introducing audio in hard-to-wire space. Ideal for easily adding zones to an existing Player Portfolio System, single-zone players support both wired ethernet or wireless 802.11a/b/g/n configuration options for optimal flexibility.

Ideal for homes with the view for expansion.



Give any room instant access to endless music options, or stay perfectly in sync when all zones are playing the same song. Provides a total of 40 watts of power at 8 ohms to a single-zone.

Indoor Air Quality monitoring with the Lascar EL-WEM

For a considerable amount of our day just about everyone is spending a considerable amount of time indoors, either at home, shopping or working.  Without thinking about it we breath in the surrounding air for our bodies to extract the oxygen we need to survive and expel waste gases such as CO2, but do we give any consideration about the quality of the air we breathe whilst spending time indoors?

The Air Indoors

Air quality found in our homes or where we work can vary greatly depending on the materials used to construct, furnish, decorate, ventilate and clean these premises. Pollutants found within a typical indoor environment include radon, tobacco smoke, particulates and gases from burning candles, fuels, polishes and cleaning chemicals, seasonal allergens, Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide. Adding to that already extensive list are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) which can found in construction materials and furniture, such as formaldehyde and flame retardants in upholstery.


Asthma attacks, irritated eyes, nose and throat, coughing and other health issues can be caused by interior air that has a high particulate count. Particulates of 10 µm (PM10) in diameter include dust, pollen and mould spores. Smaller air particulates (less than 2.5 µm/PM2.5) include smoke, smog, bacteria, fine dust and liquid droplets which can lodge deep into the lungs causing long-term illness.



The Air Quality Solution

The need for particulate sensing and control is increasing around the world due to regulatory and government requirements and VOC sensors can play an essential role in managing interior air quality.

Lascar, who are renowned for the design and manufacture of environmental data loggers, panel meters and many other quality devices have created an easy to use solution for determining if the air you are breathing, whether at work or at home, is hiding potentially harmful particulates.

Introducing the EL-WEW Range

The EL-WEM range has been designed to continually monitor the Interior Air Quality (IAQ) of a room, displaying the air quality status via a coloured status ring, a quick glance tells you all you need.

WiFi enabled, the EL-WEW Sensors will automatically upload data to the EasyLog Cloud (Lascars, single user, free cloud enabled sensor monitoring solution), allowing your data measurements to be viewed, analysed and downloaded from any internet-enabled device.

If the IAQ level is of a low quality a sounder will activate and an email and SMS notifications alert can be sent to a list of selected contacts, informing them of the air quality situation. This clever Air Quality Monitoring Sensor also features a configurable night mode, which mutes the sounder and turns the lights off at certain times. The EL-WEM range is simple to set up, with a single button press and using the EasyLog Cloud App.


EL-WEM Air Quality Monitor Features

  • Monitors Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
  • Automatically uploads data to the EasyLog Cloud
  • Coloured status ring show IAQ level
  • Sounder and instant SMS and email notifications when IAQ is poor
  • Detects VOCs from paints, lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning products, furnishings, glues, adhesives and alcohol
  • Power supply included
  • Internal back-up battery if power interrupted


  • IAQ
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • VOC’s
  • Particulate Matter: PM1 (+ model only) PM2.5 and PM10
  • CO2 (+ model only)
  • Pressure

Vaccine Storage Temperature Monitoring Solutions from Lascar with the EL-WiFI-VACX

The safe storage of medicines and vaccines isn’t something to be taken lightly. Vaccines are biological substances that may lose their effectiveness quickly or even become potentially dangerous if they are allowed to become too hot or too cold at any time, especially during transport and storage. Vaccines are transported and stored according to a recommended temperature range of +2 to +8 °C until the point of administration, they cannot be frozen and also must be protected from light. If the storage recommendations for vaccines are not accurately followed the manufacturers will disclaim any responsibility for any failures.

Monitoring the Temperature
Every year winter rolls in bringing with it an increase in viruses such as flu which can be a life threatening for those with compromised immune systems, so in the run-up to these colder months people are encouraged to get themselves a flu jab. The storage of vaccines, as mentioned earlier, needs to be carefully monitored, what if there was a power failure and your vaccine storage facilities went offline? When was the power cut, how long were the fridges offline? As vaccines can withstand a short exposure to temperatures beyond their predetermined storage level, without knowing the when and the how you risk having to destroy a batch of expensive vaccines.

As an answer to this expensive and also potentially life threatening scenario, Lascar offers a solution for the accurate temperature measurement of refrigerated vaccine storage and transportation facilities in the form of the dependable EL-WiFI-VACX. This premium WiFi enabled device operates as a remote high-accuracy vaccine temperature monitoring device, features include a large LCD, email alert notification via WiFi, built-in alarm warning light and sounder. This clever device keeps you informed, allowing you to take prompt action to protect those vaccines, such as moving them to another location while maintaining accurate data logging of their temperatures during transit.

vaccine storage fridge

The EL-WiFi-VACX allows remote vaccine monitoring and data collection over a WiFi network, viewable from any internet-enabled device via the EasyLog Cloud. With this device you can set-up high and low temperature alarms and receive instant email alerts when the storage temperatures become too hot or cold. The EL-WiFi-VACX stores data internally and if it loses WiFi connection it will automatically upload it to the Cloud once reconnected.

Trustworthy Design
A Glycol-filled temperature probe comes with the EL-WiFi-VACX which has been created to match the temperature response of vaccines in storage, ensuring highly accurate and representative readings. The probe is replaceable, which can be calibrated separately if required, a traceable calibration certificate and a wall mounting bracket are also included. This precision instrument meets and exceeds the CDC standards for vaccine monitoring.

• Measurement range -40 to +60°C (-40 to 140°F)
• Measurement resolution 0.01°C (0.02°F)
• Display resolution 0.01
• Measurement accuracy (typical) ±0.1°C (-10 to +60°C) ±0.2°F (+14 to +140°F)
• Measurement accuracy (maximum) ±0.6°C (-40 to +60°C) ±1.1°F (-40 to +140°F)
• Operating temperature (unit) -20 to +60°C (-4 to +140°F)
• Readings – unlimited
• Logging rate – user selectable between 10 seconds and 12 hours
