Why this product

Problem statement:

  • Automation and mechanization is increasingly taking over our work. These are spread out geographically and wiring them all together in one place is expensive/impossible.
  • Automation appears in various forms: Motors and actuators to drive something (like a valve or a contactor) or status indicators (dials or digital displays) that display the status of a process (like electrical meters, pressure gauges, power indicators etc.).
  • Manpower is getting expensive: It is difficult & expensive to employ trained man power to monitor these devices. These automation devices do not need full time monitoring but trained manpower is required. So it’s a catch-22: There is a need for trained manpower (expensive) but they can not be occupied full time.
  • Sometimes these automation devices are deep inside inaccessible or hazardous places (eg. Gas chambers). Reaching out to them during operation is difficult.

Solution:

Manage these devices remotely over secure Wireless links. So a few people can now manage the remote equipment. Hazardous and inaccessible locations can also be monitored

1.A device with a camera that will provide good visibility to such equipment remotely and via a wireless link

2.That live video should be easily accessible on a phone/Tab/Laptop

3.A device that will also do the controls

4.A device that will store high resolution images of the working equipment in its own storage for recording history/sequence. Useful for analysis and root cause.

5.A device that has a sufficiently secure wireless/Wi-Fi connection and has a large range

…………………….was the motivation behind the design of the Wi-Fi Camera & Controller device
