Title: On-site environment monitoring system

Abstract: An on-site environment monitoring system including at least one on-site environment condition sensor, an on-site alarm signal, and an on-site alert system. The monitoring system includes an on-site alert system having an on-site programmable microprocessor for activating the on-site alarm signal and in communication with the at least one environment condition sensor. The microprocessor is programmable to thereby provide pre-set respective ranges of environment condition values such that activation of the on-site alarm signal occurs when at least one on-site sensed environment condition value is below or above the programmed pre-set range of values. The present system achieves local control of environmental factors by providing on-site monitoring coupled with on-site alerting to thereby facilitate correction of unwanted ambient conditions by on-site personnel without requiring network-monitoring interaction and consequent time consumption.
