Home Remote Monitoring & Control
1. Using Local Area Networks and Wide Area Networks by means of ISDN Rates
The supervising system can be run on stand-alone computers or in networks containing several computers. From an operator unit, the operator has access to resources, process units and objects in the database in the network. The networks function in supervising software makes it easy to create a system for large plants or plants scattered over wide areas. Communication between the nodes is managed with the types of communication supported by Microsoft Windows, such as Ethernet.
2. Using dial-up lines
A serial LonTalk adapter is used to let the software reach a LonTalk network via a dial-up line. When the modem line between adapter and the application has been established, communication proceeds as if the application had been connected directly to the LonTalk network.
3. Using TCP/IP network
Several available controllers work like any Web Server, making it easy to monitor and control operations in a smaller system, such as district heating centre, an apartment block, offices or a daycare centre- 24 hour a day, over intranets or via the Internet. Alarms generated through a change in the system can be forwarded via e-mail to multiple addresses, or as an SMS message to any number of mobile phones.
4. Connections through different media LonWorks routers
In the areas where wiring is not possible, LonWorks networks can be connected by Ultracom Data Radio Modem. The Network Combiner Module from CTI Products Inc. makes it possible to connect multiple LonWorks networks in real-time. FTR - Fiber Optic / Twisted Pair LonWorks Router by CBL System Corporation connects LonWorks twisted pair copper networks over long distances (up to 30 km without repeaters) or through harsh environments.
