Re: Connectivity to the Cloud

Apresher,

It all comes down to the software. I have a data-logger with a free monitoring program.. It does its job.

I have another without one. Developing a GUI and backend is like another day-job. Many will forego developing and buy one with a system...

I hope this one has good software.

Connectivity to the Cloud

It looks to me like the controller does offer "web and mobile connectivity for monitoring, charting and data logging", and options/tools for developing either cloud-based applications or apps on a local web server. That would explain ways to easily access the data.

A missing link

There's something missing - a link to the outside world.  Yes, it has an Ethernet port for communication, but what is missing is what to do with that port.

What the company lacks is a wireless means of sending that information collected by the controller.  A broadband router offered by this company would pair perfectly with this controller.  Not offering it leaves a very difficult hurdle for the customer to overcome.

This is an instance where I would be happy to one-stop shop.  If you can collect the data AND help get it to the place that needs it, I see a much brighter future for the product line.

The support for a sophisticated security system and extended temperature range is quite welcome. Good job.
