If you live on your mobile device like so many of us do, you're no doubt aware that cellular carriers are moving from 3G to 4G networks to accommodate the demand for fast, reliable data service. But what does that mean for other devices that rely on cellular networks—like your remote monitoring system? It's time to consider upgrading soon to a Sentinel Cellular with 4G LTE modem because other Sensaphone cellular remote monitoring systems, like CELL682, do not run on the 4G network.
An environmental monitoring system is a cost-effective way to keep an eye on conditions like temperature and flow level that keep operations running smoothly for a wide range of industries. These systems alert facility managers and personnel as soon as a condition goes outside of pre-set parameters so they can investigate and address the issue before it becomes a big, costly problem.
Sensaphone manufactured its first home monitoring system right in Pennsylvania over 30 years ago. Back then it was common for an electronics company to manufacture its products in the United States, but now we’re one of the remaining few that still do. U.S. Department of Commerce statistics show that the trade deficit in electronics products was more than any other manufacturing industry.
If you’re looking for a flexible solution to remotely track environmental conditions at your facility or workplace, consider a cellular wireless monitoring system. These systems use sensors to communicate their data (such as temperature, humidity levels, etc.) to the wall unit. By selecting a cellular-based device, your wireless monitoring system becomes even more nimble because it doesn’t need a landline or internet connection.
Remote monitoring systems are vital in many industries. They help operators keep a constant eye on equipment and environments to prevent and detect possible problems.
Many facilities rely on these systems to maintain operational effectiveness and to get a warning when trouble is brewing. Examples include public facilities, data centers, healthcare institutions, food supply operations and water and wastewater sites.
Damaging water can enter your data center from environmental events like floods, as well as from equipment failure, leaks and broken pipes. But it’s easier and less costly than you think to protect your server and IT equipment from water damage using water detection sensors. To monitor a surface for water leakage, simply connect an IMS-4000 water sensor and a water detection rope to a Sensaphone IMS-4000 monitoring system.
If you own property, an auto dialer monitoring device is an easy, cost-effective way to keep an eye on conditions like temperature and humidity when you aren’t on the premises. But it can also help you keep an “ear” on the area in real-time with a built-in microphone.
Critical machine parts like separators, cooling towers, blowers, generators, pumps, bearings and motors usually give hints they are damaged and about to fail. When a fan becomes unbalanced or bearings start failing, they start vibrating more. Although this change wouldn't be noticeable to the human eye or ear, it's easily detected by a vibration sensor.
