Why use telemetry?
Telemetry provides the opportunity to monitor and control water supply, weather stations, machinery and security of their sites while dramatically reducing travel time and cost.
How does telemetry work?
Basically telemetry is the term used to describe logging of information at one site (outstation) and conveying the information via radio signals to a location remote to the first site (base station). In turn, signals may be sent to a second remote location to the first in order to activate a device. (e.g. pump, valve, camera etc)
How are telemetry systems powered?
Photovoltaic solar power is used for remote sites and is the primary option for power on most systems
What can I do with telemetry?
Switching pumps or irrigation systems ON and OFF
Starting generators and monitoring pressure, temperature, voltage etc.
Monitoring dam or tank levels
Real time monitoring of security devices with an instant alarm if break-in occurs
Monitoring and controlling operation of electric fences
Remote reading of instruments such as weather and water flow gauges
Monitoring the status of gates at remote locations
GPS vehicle tracking
Digital camera or CCTV camera
Why would I use telemetry?
To reduce travel costs
To save time and labour
To reduce wear and tear on vehicles
To manage infrastructure that is hard to get to (i.e. wet season inaccessibility)
To create a safety net over sites
To create more security for remote infrastructure
