Four Elements of Wine Cellar Protection

Theft Protection

Whether you want to protect your wine and liquor collection from theft - or prevent access during your teenager’s party - Elertus delivers you a comprehensive, yet easy to use solution for wine cellar protection.

The Elertus Wine Protection System includes two different types of external door sensors enabling you to monitor nearly any type of wine cellar door, wine cooler door or liquor cabinet.

Temperature Protection

Heat is the greatest threat to your wine’s health so your wine cellar temperature and wine cooler temperature matters! Keeping your wine in a cool, constant temperature will allow it to age properly and prevent it from spoiling.

The Elertus Wine Protection System can alert you if the temperature rises above or drops below the temperature ranges you set.

Humidity Protection

Keeping your wine in the correct humidity range can save corks from shrinking and causing oxidation from low humidity or label damage and mold from high humidity. You can also customize the humidity range to suite your preference.

The Elertus Wine Protection System constantly monitors wine cellar humidity to help you preserve the integrity of your wine.

Light Protection

Wine is best when stored in the dark, particularly out of the way of direct sunlight or any constant lighting. Receive alerts anytime light is detected in your wine cellar, or check the status to make sure you didn’t leave the light on!

Why is the Elertus Protection important for keeping my wine collection in optimal condition?
Wine is sensitive to both temperature and humidity. Keeping your wine near 55°F and 70% keeps it in optimal condition. Temperatures and humidity that get too far above or below these levels risk spoiling or prematurely aging your wine collection.

I already have a home security system, how does Elertus help protect my wine?
The Elertus Wine Protection System is always monitoring even when your home security system is off. Have peace of mind knowing that even if you leave your teenagers or handyman alone at your house, you will be alerted immediately if your wine or liquor collection is accessed.
